about

Innocence is intended as the first of two related EPs. A virtual 'Side A' of an album, with 'Side B' to follow in 2018. We recorded most of these songs while on tour in 2016 at studios in Newcastle and London. The recordings are all first-takes; assembled and carved from the remnants of much longer, sprawling, vibratory improvisations. Innocence and electricity moving up the spine like a hysterical snake. There is a smooth featureless pig eating our memory. We are reborn as cats. Love and rage, The Infinite Three.

Track Name: Innocence
heat resolves
desire remains

safe inside
inside her life

innocence
lean on us
breathe on us with innocence

lay with me in this town
in ourselves
in the hole we made

faith decides perfection for us

innocence
lean on us
breathe on us with innocence

lay with me in this town
in ourselves
in the hole we made

now say yes
no fear now
no stress

innocence
lean on us
breathe on us with innocence

lay with me in this town
in ourselves
in the hole we made
Track Name: Hot Strings of Love
there’s a beast outside, it’s soaked in lust
it strains above
it strains above

it smears the mountain, crests the lips
tests the living and strains above

Colourless green ideas
sleep furiously in the farmer’s hand

is the text in the sky?
is the soil dry?
if the tool is still in the farmer’s hand?

there’s a pig in the shed
he eats our chair
and in doing so, makes our bed

he cleans the landscape
he press the lips
he press the tips and strains above

featureless smooth ideas
scare the living shit out of me

when your thoughts run dry
and the facts are trying to exist in the lovers hand

the silence you hear
is all smoke to me
it’s a greater truth than words can give

it strains above hot strings of love
it strains above
it strains above

it strains above hot strings of love
it strains above
it strains above
Track Name: Like A Dog
run past the turnstiles and fold into grace
feed into the living and take his place

his place at the table
his knife and his spoon
his food is a ghost now, an image burned through

burned into the weather, it dries up the rain
the thunder is aching to breathe again

holding the handles
holding the fool
we’re bouncing off these walls
it shakes this place

there’s no tongue on the files now
there’s no room to explain
we’ll hold onto pictures ’til there’s none of you left

it’s bouncing off these walls to make a sound

his brain, his saviour
are poised like a dog

we’ll hold on to pictures
we poised like a dog

like a sound
like a sound
like a sound
like a sound
Track Name: These Animals Eyes
safe under stars
asleep in some architect’s plans
lying down
it’s the same under other lights

from marker to marker
from leader’s hands
from layers of compassion
to the place you stand

statues of birds bleached by the sun

what bed
what way of lying down
what chair
what method of rest

safe under stars
rest with us
melt with us

through these animals eyes
i hear the cats try
to feed and to speak
by the stones
how i miss your guiding hand
