about

Westing set out to release their loudest album to date, I Haven’t Been Feeling Myself. With this album Westing departs from their previous quiet acoustic sound and introduces a whole new intensity, expanding into a full band post-hardcore sound.

Westing set out to record in a new environment and teamed up with Brett Romnes (I am the Avalanche) and Gary Cioni (former band member from past band Daytrader) during the fall of 2016 to create I Haven’t Been Feeling Myself at Barber Shop Studios in Hopatcong, New Jersey.

“After several solo shows, I quickly realized playing quiet acoustic songs by myself is not what I want to do. I need to be loud.” – Matt Mascarenas

Matt Mascarenas started Westing as a solo project in 2015. In what began as a way to keep his musical creativity alive when he wasn’t touring, Westing quickly became an ongoing pursuit, releasing a series of impromptu acoustic singles and splits.

What originally started out as an acoustic solo project, Westing has transformed into a high intensity sound somewhere between the punk-rock he grew up with and indie songwriting he grew into. I Haven't Been Feeling Myself will be released on April 14, 2017.

Track Name: Skipping Beats
To hell with patience
I can’t sit back and wait for things to change
That’s how I got here
I’ve lost it again letting you down
You never let up
Wait for things to change
Still no one’s listening

It’s so easy to feel like a lost cause
It’s so easy to lose it all
I’ve got to get up, move on, this is not enough

I’ve lost it again letting you down
You never let up
Wait for things to change
Still no one’s listening

My brain is skipping beats
You’re not talking to me
I still believe in everything
But nobody is listening to me

I’ve got to get up, move on, this is not enough

It’s so easy to feel like a lost cause
It’s so easy to lose it all
I’ve got to get up, move on, this is not enough

No one is listening.
Track Name: With You
I haven’t been feeling myself
Still, I don’t need anything else

I’m trying to be all you need me to be
It takes time but I’ll get there eventually

Lately I haven’t been feeling myself
Still, I don’t need anything else
Burn our plans to the ground and live forever on the run

This could be better it’s true
Just know that I would die for you

I’m trying to be all you need me to be
It takes time but I’ll get there eventually

Lately I haven’t been feeling myself
Still, I don’t need anything else
Burn our plans to the ground and live forever on the run
I haven’t been feeling myself
Still, I don’t need anything else
As long as I wake up with you
I’m good

Those eyes,
They get me every time I’m standing alone
I can never let you go
I won’t get anywhere if I fall apart
I won’t feel anything if I stay like this
I won’t be anyone without you

Lately I haven’t been feeling myself
Still, I don’t need anything else
Burn our plans to the ground and live forever on the run
I haven’t been feeling myself
Still, I don’t need anything else
As long as I wake up with you
I’m good
Track Name: Burn
I’m feeling high when i’m low
Distorted view of the world
I lock eye contact
Blink
Then they’re gone
And everything resets
I keep an eye on my friends
I can see inside all of them
Subtle losses prevent…
All my thoughts come and go

You’re quietly spinning
And i’m quickly disappearing
Faster than before
Slow down speed up
I am quickly disappearing

My head is in my chest
This will never end
I’m lost and found my way to the ground
Make room for the empty space
Set in our destructive ways
Always room for more mistakes
Burn up
Burn away
Burn

You’re quietly spinning
And i’m quickly disappearing
Faster than before
Slow down speed up
I am quickly disappearing

I can find a way or stay

I can find a way out
In the end it doesn’t matter
If this will ever end

I’m high then I’m low
Thoughts come and go
I’m high then I’m low
Lower than before

You’re quietly spinning
And i’m quickly disappearing
Faster than before
Slow down speed up
I am quickly disappearing

I can find a way or stay
Track Name: Hide Your Heart
There’s no reason to speak anymore
Send our lawyers to fight it out
You know,
This is it for us
This life is ours
Hide your heart
So you can tear us apart

Angry and afraid
nothing to save
Go pack your bags
Don’t leave a trace

This is it for us
Lie your way back west
No one’s buying what you’re saying anymore
It’s so old
Hide your heart

Go pack your bags don’t leave a trace
(hide your heart)
Angry and afraid nothing to save

Angry and afraid
nothing to save
Go pack your bags
Don’t leave a trace

There’s no reason to speak anymore now that you’re gone
So hide your heart

Go pack your bags don’t leave a trace
(hide your heart)
Angry and afraid nothing to save
(they were lies from the start)
Angry and afraid nothing to save
(hide your heart)
Go pack your bags don’t leave a trace
(until you fall apart)

Your whole life is a lie
No one’s buying what you’re saying anymore
It’s so old
Hide your heart

Angry and afraid
nothing to save
(until you fall apart)
Go pack your bags
Don’t leave a trace
(hide your heart)
You’re so cold always alone
(until you fall apart)
You’re so cold put yourself first
Track Name: Keep Fighting
We will be fine
ill tell you its alright

Bad news, bad timing
You’ve got to keep fighting on
It gets harder and harder
Less time to get along

Bad news, bad timing
You’ve got to keep fighting

We will get through this better than before
Feeling more alive (feeling alive)

Seeing you cry torn up inside
I clench my fist and say it’s alright

We will get through this better than before
Feeling more alive (feeling alive)

Seeing you cry torn up inside
I clench my fist and say it’s alright

We will be fine ill tell you its alright
Bad news, bad timing
You’ve got to keep fighting, got to keep fighting
The world’s on fire
