Second single. Check out the debut single at:


With a mix of anger and urgency in the delivery, ‘Losing Ground’ screams teenager angst wrapped in a sort of ‘70s-inspired sonic touch and an ambitious pushing-the-sound-against-the-walls pop-rock melody. Most of the drama of this three-minute song lays in the contrast between the dark vocals – ‘I’m losing ground / In a world that’s not round anymore’ – and the rather optimistic rock opera production. However, the impressive part is certainly the age of the composer: 14-year-old Gavin Eimerman wrote the song, did the vocals, and played electric guitars and piano while his grandfather Herb Eimerman played bass and guitar and Australia-based Joe Algeri did the drums, mixed and produced the track. At a time when most 14-year-old musicians opt for bedroom production or synth-saturated hyper pop, Eimerman has a fresh take on a more classic sound with borderline paranoid lyrics – ‘It just wants to butcher me/The monster in us all.’

This promising debut was released via Egomaniac Music, the home for Joe Algeri and related musical interests, and it is already the second single recorded by Gavin Eimerman.

‘Losing Ground’ demands to be played on repeat and as loud as possible.



Fourteen-year-old Chicago area vocalist-guitarist Gavin Eimerman’s clever-rhyming, topical new song “Losing Ground” is now available today on Aussie musician Joe Algeri’s Bandcamp page. If that last name sounds familiar, it’s because Gavin is the grandson of long-time power pop musician Herb Eimerman. The elder Eimerman plays bass and 12-string acoustic guitar on the track, which also features Joe Algeri on drums and guitars and Hanna Algeri on backing vocals. Herb Eimerman and Joe Algeri have worked together in The Britannicas for several years.




Versatile reconcile that's all i ever want to be
Record isle sleepless smile that's all it ever meant to me
Memory files crying child it just wants to butcher me
Hallucination proclamation the monster in us all

Left behind another time the words they seep straight through the skin
Blanked out mind a selfish crime when the time is right
I'll learn how to forgive
Flipped a dime it gave a sign the mass of the public to outline
Youth less mime said the world was mine and took one to the chin

I'm losing ground
I'm losing ground
In a world that's not round anymore
I'm losing ground I'm losing ground
What's left for there to fight for

A run for lines a waste of time the hours they're watching over me
World divided life decided what the hell would i want to be
Same subsided learn to mind it what else would i need to see
Actions unaligned i see the signs side by side I've changed my mind


That's all it's ever meant to me
It just wants to butcher me
It just wants to butcher me
The monster in us all
