Dream 03:06
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.

Dive 03:58
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.

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.
