I wake the waterless winter wind up by
overheating it until my skin dries
almost mistakable there in the halflight
thoughts lucid enough to be
wandering around with my eyes shut
I see twice as much
and I quietly wonder
if anything I can touch is material

I know a world, she’s got bad posture
and she has windblown hair
Pretty as she is, I can tell that she understands winter

I heard the darkness thick as ink inside
but saw the sounds of your voice try
to taste the colours of black light
swollen down and dark but still
everybody was smirking
I saw everybody else was shirking someone
I saw cherry red brick and ash, can you feel it?

It’s in my head
It’s in my hands
It’s in my heart
It’s in my eyes
It’s in my stomach
It’s in my arms
It’s in my throat
It’s in my mind
It’s in my chest
It’s in my mouth
It’s in my legs
It’s in my lies
It’s in my wrists
It’s in my spine
You’re everywhere
You’re all the time

Their work is genuine. They have been making music together for the better part of a decade with sounds drawing from folk and Can-rock. Their take on guitar-heavy indie is both familiar and forward-thinking.
