about

Black Shuck Black Swan started as an improvisation. We built it around the distorted synth that opens the track, adding layers and reapproaching until we found the right balance.

lyrics

Dark hearts
Storm will come
Hide away
A glass eyed dawn
Spills on the landscape
Wake up all that’s numb
Feel it ache
Now a black swan
It comes to our door
As it whispers “you’ve seen me before”

Left by the wayside
Turn off the last light
Left by the wayside
Turn off the last light

Echoes called a warning
Clouded minds, now in mourning
Hear three knocks but tied our hands
Couldn’t meet simplest demands
Born in bliss, now we cower
Can’t face it, fear our darkest hour

Bitter calls
Come from blackened lungs
Cry away
The poachers’ lying tongues
Tuck in the long night
Black Shuck shadow on the wall
We lie awake
(Feel it close, feel it closer, feel it close)
It’s dragging down the hall
I reach out for your hand now
I reach out for anything
But nothing’s allowed

Left by the wayside
Turn off the last light
Left by the wayside
Turn off the last light

Echoes called a warning
Clouded minds, now in mourning
Hear three knocks but tied our hands
Failed to meet them, the simplest demands
Born in bliss but now we cower
We failed to face it, our own darkest hour
