about

BUM·FUZ·ZLE [buhm-fuhz-uhl]
A vagrant lover is loyal to heartsick.
Lost in the puzzle between the flustered heart and the confused head.
Forever responsible for the love i've tamed,
one can only attempt to cut the chord, burn the rope & bury the crater deep.

"★★★★★"
—Christopher Toh - TODAY

"All of these tracks are perfect for anyone who is a fan of a perfect combination of classic guitar playing and modern experimentation and ingenuity. And, best of all, this girl can sing."
—Matt Garrison - The Aquarian Weekly

"In her new single “Artful Dodger”,iNCH continues to introduce herself to us Americans. Her video for the track shows her trying to track down a friend."
—Surviving the Golden Age

"Songs such as “Inchision” explode with power and energy, while slower tunes, like “Deep Paranoia,” allow the singer to embrace a softly emotive and almost seductive sound."
—Corey Irwin - Music Connection

"For our latest taste of Bumfuzzle, [iNCH.] has chosen to release the fuzzy (obviously) rocker “The Chefalo Knot,” with its subdued Karen O vocal posturing and abrupt streaks of guitar riffage. The track highlights [iNCH.'s] impressive voice while allowing the melody and complex instrumental interchange to proceed without interference."
—Joshua Pickard - Beats Per Minute

"“Artful Dodger” was just odd enough to catch our attention. At times cacophonous, it’s oddly enchanting and recalls the early work of The Dirty Projectors."
—Clif - THE DADADA

Pigeon holes aren’t really iNCH’s thing. Constantly pushing the definitions of artistry to new levels of discomfort, iNCH is never one to shy from opening up the doors of creation to vulnerability.

Track Name: Gaudi
Who am i to give advise
when i'm a guilty sin spender spender-er
What am i to be but wise
when i've got my hands up - surrender surrender -er

Oooo Gaudi,
how did you get so good good good good (x2)
at being cool.

Who am i to resist
when i'm no longer a beast of burden burden-en
What am i to be but remiss
when i know the answer is bitter bitter-er

Oooo Gaudi,
how did you get so good good good good (x2)
at being cool.

so tell me your secrets
your tales of chivalry, love & misery
oh show me your daggers
the fate you fancy, obey & bury
oh tell me oh tell me
oh show me oh show me
oh tell me oh tell me
oh show me oh show me

Oooo Gaudi,
how did you get so good good good good (x2)
at being cool.
Track Name: The Chefalo Knot
you're a little old
to be chasing young skirts out of boredom
your youth was once a gift
but it failed to be translated into wisdom

maybe in another universe where age is just a number
but woe is thee as your curiosity is up against gravity.

you're a little sick in the head
to lust at lambs like its causal
your charm maybe convincing
but its not like it was ever really factual

maybe in another universe where a monogamist is a sinner
but woe is thee as your curiosity is up against gravity.

oh it would be wise
yes it would be wise
oh it would be wise
to stop flirting with me

you're a little intense
but i dont take offense with your advancements
flattery it maybe
but its perversity outweighs my judgement

maybe in another universe where age is just a number
but woe is thee as your curiosity is up against gravity.

oh it would be wise
yes it would be wise
oh it would be wise
to stop flirting with me
Track Name: Quit You
i can't quit you,
i can't do without this vice
i can't quit you,
Lord knows i've tried.

To quit you,
i can't vacate you out of my mind
i can't quit you
no system override

i can't quit you,
i can't do without my pride
but i can't quit you
Lord knows i've tried

To quit you,
i can't core you out of my spine
I can't quit you
no system override

my heart's turned hollow
as the burrows in my body
drown~
in all of the things
we have in
common.
oh gasping for air
the same air we share
i'm reminded of how
you're faithful to your freedom
how you're spineless with your feelings.

right down to the bone, to the bone

i can't quit you,
i can't do without this vice
i can't quit you,
Lord knows i've tried.

to quit you,
i can't vacate you out of my mind
i can't quit you
no system override

oh i can't quit
oh not this time.
Track Name: Dear Paramour
i don’t want to come over

im no innocent company

i don’t want to hold you

or at least thats what i’ll tell me

while i hang around

waiting for you to come round

and i’ll go somewhere

if you’d take me there

oh i could be

the girl you’ll keep
on your 
speed dial

on your speed dial

i don’t want to come over

you’re no innocent company

i don’t want to kiss you

or at least thats what i’ll tell me

while i play the fool

waiting for a date or two

cause i’ll go somewhere

if you’d take me there

oh i could be

the girl you’ll keep
on your 
speed dial

on your speed dial

so call me sometime.
Track Name: Artful Dodger
you're the artful dodger
the mystery joker
and you're hiding behind
your wall of humour.

you're the artful dodger
the great pretender
i can't figure you out or get a little closer

how could i have jumped into the cold
with the unpredictable
the rest if predictable
how could i have jumped into bed
with the frivolous
why did i have to challenge the universe.

your'e the artful dodger
the comic actor
and i should have known better
than to attempt to decipher

you're the artful dodger
the classic danger
and i'm ashamed of myself
cause this is all too familiar.

how could i have jumped into the cold
with the unpredictable
the rest if predictable
how could i have jumped into bed
with the frivolous
why did i have to challenge the universe.

you're the artful dodger
my heartbeat stopper
but you're hiding behind
your wall of humour
Track Name: Lyre Lyre Hearts On Fyre
we're on a voyage to no where,
sailing away from the trouble land.
abandoning those hearts on fire,
hold on tight we're nearly half way there.

brushes with the death of us
can only make us more beautiful
but if it kills with no mercy
just know that i loved you with all my heart.

don't you think we've gone too far
stealing the sunset from everyone
its funny how it seems so right
stealing the sunset from everyone.

if i had a time machine,
will you jump on board
we'll go back to one
it stabs my heart but this i'll say
you're the only one i'll open my eyes to.
you're the only one i'll open my eyes to.

brushes with the death of us
can only make us more beautiful
but if it kills with no mercy
just know that i loved you with all my heart.
Track Name: Bumfuzzle (Go Up In Smoke)
His heart's black and hollow
He changes the colors of his eyes as he please.
Oh his words trigger harrow
His humanity's intact but it's left diseased

His face is cold and somber
But he rages inside with a vengeance of beasts
Oh even when he's sober
A bloody nose is what he'd have you receive

Oh he's choked to death a dozen times from swallowing pride.
Oh no mercy from the mercenary
While the world bares the brunt of his blade/rage

And if the sun
crashes into earth and we're the last around
i'll rather go up in smoke
go up in smoke.

i'll cut the chord, burn the rope
bury the crater deep

His heart's black & hollow
He changes each time he's loses supremacy
His words cut through the marrow
His sanity's intact but its hard to appeased

His face is cold and somber
But he lashes out each time someone disagrees
Oh even when he's sober
A bloody nose is what he'd have you receive

Oh he's choked to death a dozen times from swallowing pride.
Oh no mercy from the mercenary
While the world bares the brunt of his blade/rage

Respect's a currency you can't afford
a privilege peddler ought to know his flaws
he said "perfect love cost everything"
Track Name: Inchision
There's a void in my being
a subtle feeling
it starts from my bones & it flows into my arteries, arteries.
There i let it linger, till its a cancer in me, cancer in me.

i'm falling short
i'm falling out of love with you

There's a world of opinions
attempting incisions
straight through to chest to arrest,
the breath in my lung, breath in my lungs

and i'm falling short
and i'm falling out of love with you

Someday, i'll be the girl of your dreams
but not, for now
Someday, you'll understand the unforseen
but not, with me.

There's a burning fire,
doomed to expire.
It started out as a flamed and it blazed out of my rib out of my ribs
And there my heart lays, trapped in its cage, trapped in its cage.

and i'm falling short
and i'm falling out of love with you.

Someday, i'll be the girl of your dreams
but not, for now.
Someday, you'll understand the unforseen
but not, with me.

i'm falling short,
i'm falling out
i'm falling short,
i'm falling out of love with you.

someday i'll be the girl of your dreams
but not, for now
someday you'll understand the unforeseen
but not, with me.
Track Name: Old Nine
Oh you're the first and maybe the last
A major minor memory here to haunt my stage.
While i'm the fool of all fools
I jumped into the deep without my clothes again.

Oh you're the first and maybe the last
A summer i know that won't repeat itself
A lover from a scene that i can't dispel
A subtle pleasantry, a puppet that i can't grasp.

Excuse me mister,
Won't you repeat the question.
Cause i sure hope that i could be the answer.

Excuse me mister,
won't you repeat the question.
Cause i sure hope that i could be the answer.
To all that your heart desires,
and all that your flesh requires.
Track Name: Glow
eyes closed
i feel the fire burning
burn bright
the warmth, it all surrounds me

it burns because you love me

burn bright for me baby
i could see you glowing
glow

eyes closed
i feel the fire burning
burn bright
the warmth, it all surrounds me

hands clasped
i feel my hear beat racing
stand down
cause i might burst in tears

it burns because you love me

burn bright for me baby
i could see you glowing
glowing
glowing
glow.
