about

JARDIN is my first release of 2016, comprising of four songs written and recorded in December of 2015 and January of 2016.

Conceptually the EP is based on a connection with the earth, more specifically envisaging each of us being part of a garden, either seeking a way into the ground or being held there captive.

Track Name: SOMBRE EST LE JARDIN
INSTRUMENTAL
Track Name: MINE IS A WORLD
MINE IS A WORLD ONE MAN WIDE AND SIX FEET DEEP, AND THE WALLS ARE AS BLACK AS COAL

SING YOU CANARY, SING YOUR SONG BEFORE THE AIR RUNS LOW AND LIKE HOUNDS WE'LL HOWL AT THE MOON, AND THE HAZE WILL CALL OUR NAMES. THE SEASONS WILL CHANGE ALTHOUGH WE'RE NONE THE WISER SO HERE WE'LL STAY, RIGHT HERE FOR JUST A LITTLE LONGER

ALL MEN CARRY BUCKETS AND SPADES, TOWING GRIME BEHIND THEM THROUGH THIS DARK MAZE AND IN THE LOW LIGHT, THEIR SKIN LOOKS TANNED THE COLOUR OF GOLD

FORGET THE DAYS AS THEY CHURN DEEPER DOWN, FORGET THE DAYS AS THEY LAY DEEP IN THE GROUND, AND THEIR EYES ARE WIDE AND WHITE, SPOOKED LIKE THEY'D SEEN A GHOST

SING YOU CANARY, SING YOUR SONG BEFORE THE AIR RUNS LOW AND LIKE HOUNDS WE'LL HOWL AT THE MOON, AND THE HAZE WILL CALL OUR NAMES. THE SEASONS WILL CHANGE ALTHOUGH WE'RE NONE THE WISER SO HERE WE'LL STAY, FOR A LITTLE WHILE LONGER
Track Name: ORCHIDS
SEE THIS ROW OF ORCHIDS WHERE FLOWERS GROW
THERE I SAW A WOMAN WHO I'D SWEAR WOULDN'T HAVE KNOWN
LEANING ON THE FENCE AND HOLDING ONTO THE WORLD

THE LEAVES SWAYED IN THE WIND CALLING HOME, WE DIE BY DAY AND LIVE BY NIGHT AND WE LIVED BY NIGHT AND DIED BY DAY

ROW OF ORCHIDS DIES BY DAY, ROW OF ORCHIDS LIVES BY NIGHT
Track Name: PALE IS THE MOON
PALE IS THE MOON ON NIGHTS LIKE THIS AND OUR BROAD BRAWLING VINES CURL UPWARDS, WHILE OLD WAILING WINDS CALL FROM HOME AND OUR BODIES STAY PLANTED IN LOAM

WHEN WE GROW WE CYCLE DECIDUOUS, SHEDDING LEAVES AND FLOWERS IN STORMS. WE'LL STILL STAND TOGETHER THROUGH AUTUMN'S CHILL AND WINTER'S COLD

PALE IS THE MOON ON NIGHTS LIKE THIS WHILE BROADENING OUR ROOTS IN THE SOIL, WHILE EARTH WORMS AND CRITTERS STIR, THE SKY DARKENS AS CLOUD CURTAINS FALL
DARK IS THE GARDEN ON NIGHTS LIKE THIS
Track Name: DON'T GO WANDERING ALONE (THROUGH THE GARDEN)
OUT BACK THERE'S TALL GRASS THAT MUST BE OF A SHOULDER HEIGHT AND HIDING ROSES AND PLUMS. A ROW OF VINES LEANING ON A TIRED FENCE WITH RUSTED GALVANISED IRON

WE DON'T GO WANDERING ALONE THROUGH THE GARDEN WHILE BIRDS CIRCLE AROUND, AND IN FEAR OF THE TRIFFIDS WE STAY 'TIL DAWN AND DON'T MAKE A SOUND

WE WAIT THROUGH THE NIGHT FOR THE SUN TO RISE AND WAIT THROUGH THE DAY FOR NIGHT TO FALL

WE'D BURIED A BOX OF TRINKETS WITH MARBLES AND PENNIES, THEY'RE THE SEEDS OF SOME OLD MEMORIES. BUT NOTHING WILL GROW IN THE CLAY WITH THAT DRY DIRT STREWN ON TOP

WE DON'T GO WANDERING ALONE THROUGH THE GARDEN WHILE BIRDS CIRCLE AROUND, AND IN FEAR OF THE TRIFFIDS WE'LL STAY 'TIL DAWN AND DON'T MAKE A SOUND

WHILE BIRDS CLOUD IN THE SUN AND SURROUND PLEASE DON'T GO WANDERING ALONE THROUGH THE GARDEN
