nick arne Wonderful singing combined with intriguing songwriting. Love the guitar playing as well- the emphasis on melody is very pleasant. Lowlight and Balaclava are incredible songs! I'll be watching for future releases! Favorite track: Lowlight.

Track Name: Matrices
the matrices of you and me are in a line
i constantly constellate them in my mind
connecting dots and spiraling eyes
incinerate you in my mind

we are more than stardust
we are silver, we are gold

i solve you exponentially, it never starts
i dive into the rips of things, i find my heart
i'll be laughing at the pines, reciprocate you over time

we are more than stardust
more than silver, more than gold
Track Name: Balaclava
it's been turning weeks on end
we're behind on loaves of bread
and i'm calling, weeping for you

oh they've come to fix the towers
now a minute lasts an hour
and i'm waiting, weeping for you

said you're in a balaclava
said i'll see you oh but i don't see a thing
don't see a thing

standing by til quarter after
people slip to warmer pastures
i stand here, waiting for you
i still stand here, burning for you


said you're in a balaclava
said i'll see you oh but i don't see a thing
don't see a thing
Track Name: Lowlight
we are halfway to paradise
and halfway to lonesome
riding for free

walk with me silence
in the lowlight
of grey company

sing to me your sorrows
i've heard them before
i know what they mean

we'll paint all of our shadows
dig them down
under maple leaves


smile at you in the garden
lady of woods
freckled and clean

roots whisper to you
oh i am drying
help me please

Track Name: Port Clyde
sailboats in the wild
prisoner of the isle

i could've told you
what it means to meet the enemy
i should've told you
what it is to be a ship at sea

(ah ah ah)

porches of the pines
written by design

mother won't you please
tend your garden
all of the trees
they're starving

(ah ah ah)
