about

'Sad Shallows' marks part three of the 'C Side' re-release journey.

Focused on rock, pop, keys and samples, this collection features the rise and fall of big snare, soft piano and distorted guitar. Garage production ethics underpin each recording, as peaks, noise and out-take hiss are all retained within a glossier, remastered format.

Seven songs on two tracks tell the story of 'Sad Shallows', an ironically titled reflection of personal growth and life learning. Dealing with romance and relationship trauma, 'Sad Shallows' could be a beautiful existential tragedy played out through vampires, butterflies, pain and wistful dreams.

Best enjoyed with pictures of loved ones at hand.

Presented on BandCamp as a digital cassette or vinyl experience - continuous play over two tracks - 'Sad Shallows' continues the concept of digital vinyl experience online.

Track Name: C Side Volume 3 - Sad Shallows - Side 1
1. NOTHING MORE CERTAIN

Whatever happens
From here until forever
Nothing is more certain
Tears will be shed
Whoever goes out
To waste their own delusion
Fear intoxication
No better to be dead

Soon you'll find
Soon

No more lies
I'll make you tell
And you'll cry

So broken and so hollow
A shallow soul destroyer
This poisoned heart forsaken
Bitter and afraid
Whoever wakes up
That love's no callow ruler
Courageous execution
Better than your fear

Soon you'll find
Soon you'll die

No more lies
I'll make you tell
And you'll cry
No more lies
I'll make you tell
And you'll cry
I know you well
Silence is golden
Soon
You'll die



2. BUTTERFLIES

Take a bloodied butcher knife
Finish what you started
Carve me up the same damn way
You did before you left
Open up this gaping wound
Salt it like you love to do
End my endless misery
Blow by blow dismember me

All I really wanted
Was to feel that feeling
You know the one
When first we come
Butterflies
Inside
It's all I really wanted
It's all I really need
It's all anyone ever really sees
Why must you be so

Oh my heart is broken up
In so many different ways
In this hopeless darkened hole
I try to forget your face
I have lost all memories
Back in or out of love
All that's left is death
And maybe a door back to the start

All I really wanted
Was to feel that feeling
You know the one
When first we come
Butterflies
Inside
It's all I really wanted
It's all I really need
It's all anyone ever really sees
Why must you be so

All I really wanted was to feel



3. VAMPIRES

Die
In my arms love
Die
Beneath the starlight
I
Will always kiss you better

Cry
A little blood lost
Cry
A world of hard frost
Shy
The winter loves me better

While we're dancing
They'll be sleeping light

Cry
For never changing
Cry
For seasons leaving
Shy
Of living here forever

Fly
The world is dawning
Fly
An evening morning
I
Will hold us here together

While we're dreaming
They will slowly die
Track Name: C Side Volume 3 - Sad Shallows - Side 2
4. DISAPPOINTMENT

Play it out
The fire inside
Weigh me down
The crying eyes

Tomorrow isn't brighter
The morning didn't bring
A shining light


Pray in doubt
Kneel and die
Shivered out
The quiet lie

Come and be my saviour
Show this borrowed soul
A burning heart

Kill my disappointment
Murder all these thorns
Around my eyes

I'll be here
When you're gone
Love



5. JUVENESCENCE

After all is said and done
It was already over
After all pretense
You forget
The war is over

You wade out there
You wade out there
So light
It'll be alright
Yes
It'll be alright

Blind and bringing in the truth
A wire enclosure
Save it for the youth
Black and blue
The war is over

You wade out there
You wade out there
So light
It'll be alright
Yes
It'll be alright


So they said
You'd be the same
They all lied
So they said
You'd be the same
They all lied


6. MY LOVER WENT TO JAPAN

Oh the city's never been this dead
Can you tell me what you meant what you said
That you would never go to Japan

Well the word is out and no one can stand
From Morocco to the shores of Siam
There's a hole inside my heart and my hands
And I appreciate the lack of a stare

All the promises you made on the steps
Can you tell me what you meant when you said
That you would never go to Japan


7. TO FOREVER

Come down
Save my soul
From cold hands
Light my way out
By smiling fate

You were always the better one
My love

Brave my winter
Show me fire
Smoke me out
Before your light dies
Breathe love inside me

You were always the better one
My love

Let's drink to forever
My dear
Let's drink to forever
You promised forever
My love

You were always the better one
My love
