about

"fuzzy alt rock strewn soundscapes with hints of impressive shoegaze & dream pop...Its cavernous reverb sounds are augmented by some scuzzy noise rock influences too...Soft Wounds debut is a record that seems to benefit from influences beyond the usual suspects" - Sarah Cuthbert Kerr, Primal Music (bit.ly/1TgPY9L)

"It’s no cookie-cutter shoegaze or dream pop release, as it features some solid songwriting, using genre identifiers only to draw curious listeners into their sonic world. The reverb is warm and generous, the feels are real" - DKFM (bit.ly/1TjnVYo)

"Clouds of guitar and reverb-drenched drums articulate around themes, crunching lyrics somewhere along the way. The dreamscape is all for Soft Wounds" - Jack Derricourt, Grayowlpoint (bit.ly/1RCtwru)

Track Name: Honora
Out of the darkness,
You found a way,
It wasn't easy, but,
You're here to stay.

Wind over water,
Will wave hello,
The beauty of the summer,
Is all you know

She stands in the moonlight,
She stares at a starlit sky,
She stands on the shoreline,
She thinks of the other side

Somehow you look different,
But I still call your name,
Anywhere I've lived,
My home has stayed the same,
You're on your own island,
And this is where you'll stay,
Somehow you look different,
But I still call your name.

Today,
So wait,
Today

The shores will empty,
The ice will come,
The coldness of the winter,
Will leave you numb.

She stands in the moonlight,
She stares at a starlit sky,
She stands on the shoreline,
She thinks of the other side

Somehow you look different,
But I still call your name,
Anywhere I've lived,
My home has stayed the same,
You're on your own island,
And this is where you'll stay,
Somehow you look different,
But I still call your name.

Today,
So wait,
Today

But I still call your name,

Today,
So wait,
Today.
Track Name: Baby Blue
I was only seventeen,
She was with me in my dreams,
I would see her in my head,
Saw her lying in my bed.

Wanna think about her,
Tell her everything,
Always has the answers,
Tell me everything,
My baby blue.

I was only twenty-nine,
She was always on my mind,
My dream lover, rescue me,
She came home and she found me.

Wanna think about her,
Tell her everything,
Always has the answers,
Tell me everything,
My baby blue.
Track Name: Bright and Early
Sunshine, you light up the air,
So bright that everyone see's you there,
Sometimes, you rise in the morning and find me,
Never alone.

Sunshine, you light up the sky,
So bright,m that I have to close my eyes,
Your light, reflecting in water reminds me,
Never alone.

Stay where you are,
Too close to you and that's all she wrote,
Stay where you are,
Too far away and that's all she wrote.

Sunshine, you light up the room,
So bright, I spend every day with you,
Sometimes, you sleep in the evening, I'll find you,
Never alone.

Stay where you are,
Too close to you and that's all she wrote,
Stay where you are,
Too far away and that's all she wrote.

Light up the air,
See where you are,
Light up the sky,
Stay where you are.

Sunshine, you light up the air,
So bright that everyone see's you there,
Sometimes, you rise in the morning and find me,
Never alone.
Track Name: Dive In
longer days,
the suns till shines,
floating on a rising tide,
on the ocean, diving in,
let the water take you in.

paint a picture perfect colors
flowing into one another,
etch the sky in shades of blue,
you, find the love in all you do

longer days,
the sun still shines,
floating on a rising tide,
on the ocean, diving in,
let the water take you in.

where are you now? please come around, can anybody see?
you are the ocean after all, dive in.

breeze is blowing,
in your skies,
sun is shining,
in your eyes.
