lyrics

We built tiny cities where the ground was to harsh to grow
and oh god how you'd laugh when we'd bury ourselves in the sandy snow
dressed our hearts in sunday's best for church but we forgot to go
my-oh-my how I wish you'd have danced for the ship that I stole.

When survival sickness sets in we will run naked through the grange
from the island where we sing our skyline's teeth are chattering
I was the blood in your shallow veins before the trees learned your name
and it falls into you like a spring that's so tired of having to change.

So go on kiddo, get yourself free
we'll act like the seahorse wanted it this way
and when they ask, we'll sharpen our teeth
and act like we still give a shit


I can only howl for so long.

about

Revelstoke Toronto, Ontario

Revelstoke is folk music played in an underwater city still trapped in the 40s using alien technology. Mini-symphonies built using a banjo, mandolin, violin bowed guitar with gentle poetic lyrics looped through a pedal. Abstract and dreamy.
