about

digital 7"

During the recording of last year’s release Kiku, The Parlor wrote a few songs that felt like outliers. Kiku was a tightly wound concept album but “Dream” and “Dive” were both pointing toward the other side of grief. “Dream” held in it the realization of the couple’s tight bond, a glimpse of a blissful moment in an otherwise dark epoch. “Dive” was the f-you. The feeling that it’s all too much. It became clear that the band was now free to write their own rules. Before was before. Now is wide-open.

Track Name: Dream
Down at the cemetery, I picked an elderberry and I showed you what happens when you crush one on your shirt.
You laughed aloud at me, the light behind you brightly -your hair lifted up on a breeze and my heart hurt.

Down at the cemetery, you picked an elderberry and you showed me what happens when you crush one on your shirt.
I laughed aloud at you, a breeze up and passed through -your eyes, the sky were both blue and my heart hurt.

Something about a moment like this. I should rejoice in bliss. But deep in my soul, I can't dismiss that every moment with you is like a dream.
Track Name: Dive
The night sounds alive outside.
I have nobody, I don't cry, but it don't come easy now for me.

A heart with no one to call.
I had them but I lost them all.
Make it easier on me.

Take a dive. Feel my mind unwind.
Dim the lights. Let forever find itself tonight.
It's the drawing of the long dark curtain -over my mind.
And it comes so easy now for me.

Take a dive. Feel my mind unwind.
Dim the lights. Let forever find itself tonight.
Don't anyone come knocking....
Don't anyone come knocking on my door.
