about

We wanted to release some tracks which were well recorded and captured 'us' more than we had previously managed. We decided that to get something out quickly, a two track 'single' would be a good idea, made up of two tracks which won't make it onto our next EP/mini album.

The single starts with hail, which started bucketing down minutes after we had finished recording, so we stuck a mic out the window, and there it is.

We hope you enjoy, pass our music on and spread it around


Love,

Evening Chorus


xx

Track Name: No Wreath, No Crown
there was nothing left to say
though you’ll tell me that i was wrong
it has to be your way
i had to bite my tongue

it has to be your way
it has to be your way

i had to bite my tongue
i had to bite my tongue

we are saying things to hurt
we say them because we are young
our points they must be heard
i have to bite my tongue

our points they must be heard
our points they must be heard

i have to bite my tongue
i have to bite my tongue

one of us must back down
i know who it will be
there will be no wreath, no crown
no winners to be seen

there will be no wreath, no crown
there will be no wreath, no crown

no winners to be seen
no winners to be seen
Track Name: Blistered Magnolia
there’s cracks in the windows
and weeds in the floors
blistered magnolia
covers the walls

hiding the beauty
and guilt that it’s seen
the shell of the house
which should never have been

all that we had, we lost
all that we had, we lost
all that we had, we have lost
all that we had, we have lost
we have lost

the slate on the roof
didn’t keep us all dry
the cast iron grill
obscuring the light

then autumn came
stripping the trees
it was too late
we could not leave

all that we had, we lost
all that we had, we lost
all that we had, we have lost
all that we had, we have lost
we have lost
