about

Nearly 3 years after releasing "*swish*," we give you our first release as a full band: "Don't Blow It." Crafted with love and care. <3
(EP download comes with instrumental versions of all 3 songs as bonus tracks)




Press:
"... All three tracks, but especially the aptly titled opener ‘Cheating The NASA Space Physical’ resemble the hectic, yet super-abundantly melodic emo-sound math-veterans like of Invalids and Colour, combined with the pushing shouts reminiscent of the classic one-man project Girlfriends. Addy Harris’ and Brock Benzel's interchanging singing parts lead to powerful vocal exchanges, with several culminating moments where both voices complement each other so, so pleasantly – especially on the third track ‘Stitchface’, which paces itself a little to grant its singers some space to harmonize.

Their fast-paced new release marks the first record of Good Game with a complete band lineup, and as such sounds way more complex than the first few demos made by head songwriter Benzel, who in the past released similar tracks just by themself. Here’s hoping the now quintet stays to collaborate for a full-length album, because it successfully adds to a highly energetic niche that only so few bands have yet achieved to fill." - Fecking Bahamas

Track Name: Cheating the NASA Space Physical
you change your mind almost as much
as you change clothes
so let’s settle down and figure out this situation

and we try new things
to see if our bodies were paying attention
and we try new foods
to see if our taste buds were paying attention

they were so acute

I don’t need your diagnosis,
and I don’t need your extroversion
to know I’m not perfect

and I’m taking this one problem at a time
it’s not an imbalance in hormones
but in chemistry

we never learned to balance those equations

I don’t need your diagnosis
I don’t need your extroversion
Track Name: Latitudes
counting backward
as if to trick the ticking second hand to stop
by the time we realize we could just stop watching the clock
the watch unworn, we traded in for a compass

(en route)
we, for all the hours
wasted retracing our steps back to where
an axis, on which all our latitudes seemed so longitudinal,
is never drawn to scale,
still fail

navigating our horology with nothing but an atlas
to map out all the topography and still get lost

we, for all the miles
wasted recounting our bent to err,
off axis spin out so our latitudes seem so longitudinal
for all the secondhand embarrassment, to keep
noticing we’re still walking backwards
an axis never drawn to scale
leaves plenty of room for when we fail
Track Name: Stitchface
I don’t want to say I don’t love you anymore, but
this time, “I’m sorry” doesn’t cut it
and I don’t want to say it’s all your fault, so
I’ll just bite my tongue

if I could do the math, maybe
I’d find the limit doesn’t exist
to our selfishness
if I could beat the RNG,
you’d always be my Stitchface,
but we’re 0 for 58

maybe one day, it’ll come back to us, maybe one day

if I could do the math, maybe
I’d find the limit doesn’t exist
to its worthlessnesses
if I could beat the RNG,
you’d always be my

when I said I’ll always be there for you, I meant it

if I could do the math, maybe
I’d find the limit doesn’t exist
to my worthlessnesses
if I could beat the RNG,
you’d always be my stitchface
you’d always be my stitchface

I don’t want to say I don’t love you anymore, but
