REVIEWS:

"This is one release you seriously don’t want to miss out on and definitely one release YOU DO want to have a go before anyone else does. 10 Out Of 10 lads… Actually let’s make that 12 out of 10"

- The Siren Sound

"It soon becomes clear to the listener that The Dirt & The Trees is not a collection of songs merely thrown together. Rather, it is an entire work of art full of songs carefully crafted over a period of months until each and every piece of the puzzle has been meticulously put in its proper place. As such, The Dirt & The Trees is a stunning album; an album of cohesion and of deep meaning."

- Eoin Smith, Hercules Moments

Track Name: Silver City
Goodbye sleepy garden, farewell northern seas.
For we'll have to slumber while the city crumbles to its knees.
Goodbye Silver City, farewell affluence and gold.
The tyrant's discontent it will never replace the memories they stole.
Goodbye a decade of love and loss, farewell equality.
I promise that you'll wake one day to salvage your former glory.

They'll turn off, turn off their drills
They'll turn off, turn off their drills.
Track Name: February
February glows through the thunder and snow
On a distant horizon loves tangled branches grow
A violent mist blankets fields below
The February sun will never ever show

Your breath will escape your lips
Into the night and into the mist

February waits onboard a haunted freight
Clicking down rusted tracks over this burnt out state
All of these fraying wires over head infuse all these fields of hate
February will always come too late

Your breath will escape your lips
Into the night and into the mist

FebruaryComesTooLateFebruaryComesTooLate...
Track Name: Fear & Symmetry
Love's flame is the most fleeting of all
We have all the time in the world, still everyday we have less
Every fold of you will unravel
And those creases become like maps

Between your fear and your symmetry

Her heart ties ribbons around my tangled branches
That if I ever lost her this red orchard will guide me home

Between your fear and your symmetry
Between your fear and your symmetry
Between your fear...
Track Name: Departures
Sometimes its hard to trust in this world
Sometimes its easier if you just close your eyes
Sometimes we don't care enough
And sometimes I hate myself for that

Depart to a place we understand
Depart somewhere between Oslo and Islam

Everything that comes together!
Will be torn apart!
In a wind of change!
Our branches will sway!
And they'll shake!
They'll shake!
And Break!

Sometimes its easier if you just close your eyes
Track Name: Sunsets & Silhouettes
The sun will set behind silhouettes
And the clouds will grow red
For red is the colour of our love
Red is the colour of blood

You love and I, when the tyrants have won
We'll evaporate into the sun
Some memories are only lies
And some memories won't die

The anxious and scared, procession hearse
We'll hold our breaths till our little hearts burst
So either way we'll dwindle and blaze
Take hope in our sorrowful days

So either way we'll dwindle and blaze
Take hope in our sorrowful days
So either way we'll dwindle and blaze
Track Name: Dwindle & Blaze
The horizon is lost amongst the fog of our greatest torment
Are gone, these telephone lines that connect our lives
Their contorted shapes rip through the sky

We'll dwindle & blaze
Dwindle...

Trees shape landscapes on misty fields
But the tyrants will rip them down for their granite and steel
Then where will we be but gaps against the pillow
And this artificial light screaming through this hollow

We'll dwindle & blaze
Dwindle...

We'll dwindle & blaze
Dwindle & blaze
Track Name: What's Left Of Our Homes?
Shellshocked watching the world burn
Will we get through the night without killing anyone?
When will this end, when our schools are white washed?
And our prisons all look like Mosques?!

The vultures, well they own the streets tonight
Armed with false truths they forfeit their lives
Your homes are a war zone
In the cowl of the are the flaming drones

Please go, please go
Please go to what's left of your homes!

PLEASE GO! PLEASE GO!
PLEASE GO! TO WHAT'S LEFT OF YOUR HOMES!

Mother, your child is a tinderbox
Of blazing cars under your sovereign stars

THERE'S NO POINT IN TRYING TO SAVE THIS.
