|Liner notes + a horsey sea songs mixtape for ill Mare||
24 Aug 2020> We're gonna release a song 1x a month from Herd of Birds, the next Sound ƒuries album forthcoming on 12/24/2020 (our 24th anniversary), hear's the 1st single, "Mare."
We originally recorded "Mare" in the late '80s for a '89 cassette release Whorl (we called it "Skin" back then) + re-released it on the unheard tapes, but we wanted to re-do it w/ our bedder-½ singing. It was our ode to the ocean, back when we lived in Santa Cruz + used to spend countless hours staring at the waves. We changed a few of the lyrics, otherwise it's pretty much the same.
Lyrically it's diffrent then the rest of the songs on Herd of Birds (which yes, are primarily about birds, bees + our current homebound situation). We used acoustic on all the songs tho (we would of last year on 3.3 x 3.3 = S.S. but our acoustic guitar was outta commission or back + forth to Fender HQ being fixed) but most of the other tracks rock out a bit more, don't worry... perhaps weird to release a ballad as a single, but it was the 1st track we finished months ago. Hear's a video we made for it (using canned ocean footage):
+ hear's a mixtape of sea songs that inspired or share common ground w/ ill "Mare":
