BandRockAvant-garde

We are a four piece progressive indie rock band from Woodstock Ontario. We put a lot of emphasis into being an instrumentally avant-guard band whithout the instruments sounding overwhelming.
We are influenced by metal but sound much more indie.

Biography

We are a four piece progressive indie band. In that we mean that we fit the genre of indie but are also relatively avant guard in our sound. We mix the writting style and structure of progressive metal with the soothing sounds of rock and alternative rock indie music.

We also place a lot of emphasis on the bass as the lead instrument in the band for the majority of the songs. The guitar(s) take more of a rhythmic role in the shape of the music

We are influenced by bands varying from Whitechapel to Bloc Party. All of the members have been in various metal bands, not to mention all sorts of other bands. The guitarist, Taylor, was even guitarist in a ska band in France by the name of Ozmos for a brief stint.

Lyrics

Spill Our Thoughts

Written By: Absinthe Party

When the words you refuse to hear
Are the first ones that you’re told
One of your closest friends
Wont ever get to grow old...

The man with a smile
Is still hiding his tongue
And another man of God
Is currently hiding a gun.

So let’s spill our thoughts
In a bowl on the counter
‘Collect them again in the morning
When the sun tears away our sleep

We’re all waiting to fall,
head over heels
Oh what our luck,
see us all standing

So let’s spill our thoughts
In a bowl on the counter
‘Collect them again in the morning
When the sun tears away our sleep

So let’s spill our thoughts
In a bowl on the counter
‘Collect them again in the morning
When the sun tears away our sleep

We want to come down,
from this precarious height
What chance we have,
that we’re afraid of the ground

Curiosity killed the cat
But it also saved the mice
The freedom of many
[as] The tyrant lost his life

And still we punish
Those who try and ask
What we think we‘re doing;
And why we choose not to think?
