For their debut showcase EP, Portraits in Pop, The Identifiers worked overtime to compress smiles, tears, danceability, catchiness and also a healthy sprinkling of humor into four songs (+ remixes!), their first foray in the pop medium. Each song is a portrait - of a mood, a person, a situation - and each of the four singers on the EP used their unique talents to enliven every vivid detail. What you hear is the product of a year’s worth of countless rewrites, troubleshoots, and late nights, but most importantly a lot of good times... We hope you enjoy!

I'm sending signals out, but nobody seems to hear the sound
There's no reply, no contact, just an echo spinnin round and round (round and round)
I wonder am I all alone in this empty, gigantic universe
If you're listening, set me free, send a sign, are you there at all, are you there at all, I wanna ask you
Can you help me, tell me, something to believe in,
Is there any way that I could see your face, that I could touch your hand?
Sometimes I think I'm lost within the darkness, and I wanna know
Is There Anybody Out There? Ohh...
Is There Anybody Out There?
In space nobody hears me as I'm clapping; does that mean I don't exist?
If you prick me, I still bleed, but there's no you, and I'm just me,
I'm just floating free
If you were here with me, I'd show you all the stars (all the stars)
And there's no place we couldn't travel, near or far (near or far)
So can you send me just a little sign of life
And tell me Is there anybody out there?
