about

Franny & Zooey Dominican Republic

Franny & Zooey is the name behind Juan Julio Peña and Victoria Linares, two buddies that were introduced at a a punk show in Dominican Republic. Years later, in the sizzling summer of 2012 they decided to make some demos for two weeks straight, giving birth to Bananafish (released on Dufflecoat Records in 2013).

The band is heavily influenced by 60’s girl groups and 80’s indiepop.

Track Name: The Things I Know
things I know
the things I know
will haunt you down
they will haunt you down

darling, don't you leave me
I swear I'll do things right this time.
mother, don't you cry now
I swear I won't lie again

Don't you, don't you tell me
that we can't go back again in time.
hello, can't you hear me?
the more I hide, the more you see

but the things I know
the things I know
will haunt you down
they will haunt you down

someday, i will tell you.
all of the things i've been through
mother, don't you cry now
the more I hide, the more you see

but the things i know
the things i know
will haunt you down
they will haunt you down

the things i know.
Track Name: Fool Of Myself
I woke up today to the sound of The Temptations
and last night was such a blur but I remembered you.
You were wearing black and I thought you look good
I made a fool of myself trying to kiss you

You tell me this is it: rubber bands and sleepless nights.
"Let's be friends", you say and you'll be there for me.
How polite you are!
Lending me a shoulder to cry.
I made a fool of myself trying to kiss you

I made a fool of myself
I made a fool of myself
I made a fool of myself
Track Name: Ex Lovers
I've been walking through the city lights
masturbating the thought of you and me.
I've been waiting for you for years
but you never never come around
but you never never come around

I place my eyes in the dryer machine
after you the summer never came
as love makes its way out of my room
crumbs of ex lovers
the tv is on mute
crumbs of ex lovers
the tv is on mute

I've been a fool for you
I've been a fool for you

I have been weak with you
I have been weak with you
Track Name: Paola y José
Ellos eran tan lindos
que nadie los podía ver.
Cuando ellos salían
nadie podía creer

lo que veían
que veían (x2
)

Ella se ponía su vestido azul
y el su camisa de rayas,
ella una flor en la oreja
y el sus botas negras.
Vivían en una casa grande
tenía aire central

Paola y José vivían juntos
pero nadie sabía la verdad

No se conocían
por dentro (x2)
que todo era tan falso
la mentira de la ciudad

Todos sus amigos los envidiaban
todos querían ser ellos
ella en su carro blanco
y el en su moto vieja
Paola y sus ojos azules
José y sus ojos café

Paola y José vivían juntos
pero nadie sabía la verdad

No se conocían
por dentro (x4)
Track Name: Like In Movies
Straining, pulling you closer
our eyes meet but you're kinda scared, dear
nervous, nervously waiting
my mouth opens but i can barely speak

Losing, I'm losing this battle.
Your friends are saying that I'm no good for you.
Drifting, I feel that you're drifting

Like in movies i'm running after someone else
like a book with a bad ending
like a kiss hanging loose in the middle of nowhere

You're turning your back on me
and your words like balloons over my head
and if you don't care then I don't care
it's just a casual meeting between us two

Like in movies i'm running after someone else
like a book with a bad ending
like a kiss hanging loose in the middle of nowhere
