about

"We could wax ad nauseam on how Toronto’s Meligrove Band’s spastic, Technicolor rock sounds like how an afternoon spilling beer inside a tent feels (hot, sticky and awesome), but why go on when we can just proclaim this fuzzy, melodic track worth your time? Shimmering Lights drops September 21 on Last Gang Records and we are going to buy it." -RCRD LBL

"Never has surviving the Night of the Living Dead sounded like such a party" -Dose

lyrics

Ashes to shingle
Over chimney fire
Where the moonlight
Mingles with lamplight
All the while
We waste our heavy hands

Clinging to driveways
Lifted by a frost
Underneath this
Grand, mass exodus
Of cars
Our heavy hands will rust
And break down into dust

Swear to God
When we were young
Where half-light hit
We saw you in the Sun
We could see
Your eyes of stone
When you told us
We’d always be alone

Pulling my face close to yours
To show me blood, dripping from your pores
If you could bite my face off, you know you would
The stench of something dead
Is mixed with perfume that bled
From your limbs onto the hardwood

Fighting the dark
With the fierceness of a fire
Burning ten loose leafs
Attaching words and wire
With heat and silhouettes

When we find you
Ashes work to
Bury you away…
Bury you away.

Swear to God
When we were young
Where half-light hit
We saw you in the Sun
We could see
Your eyes of stone
When you told us
We’d always be alone

For sanity’s sake, I’ll keep her hid
In a mason jar like when we were kids
In a mass burial of insect kind
If someone finds out and breaks the seal
The mason jar will surely reveal
The dampened spark connecting her thoughts to mine
