We hope you like this song. We intended to create a timeless work of music. The whole album was recorded on a beautiful 24-track tape machine, with the help of producer and bassist Henry Hirsch (most acclaimed for his work with Lenny Kravitz, Madonna, Vanessa Paradis), engineer Rachel Alina (credits include P!nk, Katy Perry, Stephen Marley) and drummer Ernesto Karolys (he's played on Letterman with First Aid Kit!). It was released this April on iTunes and other digital music platforms.
For the release of the physical CD, we need your help. Our current crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo.com aims to raise the final funds we need in order to replicate CD's and do a low-budget, well-planned-out and highly effective promotional strategy.
One of the perks you can get is this very music video as a full download, ad-free. Click here and pick perk VID-VID-VIDEO and help us make more music! Thank you so much in advance for your contribution.
Here are the song lyrics for you to sing along:
I went out walking, just the other day
Shoes on a wire, farewell yesterday
A forest for the lonely, a temporary home
Seldom iridescent, on an earthly tongue
Here’s one for the forgotten, may you find your way
50 cents and a dollar, we got dreams to pay
For I’ve seen the eyes of the interstate
And I’ve seen the lifted, and those who could not wait
Long live your tomorrows
May you carry on
I’ve seen them weak
And I’ve seen them strong
For I’ve dreamt in colors something seldom found
Mountain-to-sea, daddy-long-legs upon my trail
I learned to pay attention and drop everything
These houses on stilts could never walk away
Careless remarks on an open mind
These daytime ghosts, and these trees have eyes
So many variables, it was just a catalyst
Dreamin’ of an ocean, filled with words
