lyrics

Picture Irene

I can only ever know you from afar
I can't get closer to the fabric of your scars
The details in your lining like I've never seen
You're turning into someone I've almost never been, Irene

I never seem to be what you thought you saw
Around a corner, in passing, in awe
You don't remember what I was saying
Because you did all the talking

If we never met, you'd never leave
If we never let go of the distance
If we never met, you'd never leave
If we never let go, we could lead
A perfect existence

You never end up being that surprise
A girl I never ever saw with my own eyes
I guess we can't avoid actually meeting
But once I find out your real names, you're all the same

Just kiss my eyes, don't won't say a word
Just touch my mouth, don't be absurd
I'll always be new
Just because you'll never learn anything about me

If we never met, you'd never leave
If we never let go of the distance
If we never met, you'd never leave
If we never let go, we could lead
A perfect existence

This time, we'll try to stay away
At a greater distance every day
From here we'll keep waiting
For the first time

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
