lyrics

A Letter Before Leaving

I watched you wash your feet in the sink
I watched you lose your furs in the snow
I watched you burn a pie on the stove
I watched you drop your necklace down the drain
On the day before I left

You were angry
I couldn't wait to come back
And watch you do it all over again
And you were beautiful
I couldn't wait to come back
And watch you do it all over again

I watched you bite my cheek until it bled
I watched your nails dig trenches in my back
I watched you use me while you watched me use you
I watched the deepest sleep you drew me into
On the night before I left

You were fierce
I couldn't wait to come back
And watch you do it all over again
And you were fiery
I couldn't wait to come back
And watch you do it all over again

And during every day that I was gone
I watched the films we made
I listened to our songs

I watched you put a flower print dress over your shoulders
I watched you take it off and put on five more
I watched you carefully put your makeup on
I watched you cry it off in the mirror

You were far away
I couldn't wait to come back
And watch us do it all over again
I was far away too
I couldn't wait to come back
And watch us do it all over again

Statue Park Montréal, Québec

Behind soaring, breathy vocals, Statue Park is a blend of intricate guitar interplay, completed by moody, murky samples and bubbly analog synths, driven by a live pulsating, heartbeat of bass and drums. The Montreal quartet manage to carry their complex arrangements to the stage with verve and intensity, delivering a 90s inflected indie rock breathing through epicly layered electronics. ... more
