Biography

Cursees Connect is an indie rock band hailing from Fredericton, NB. With humble beginnings as a solo project by lead singer/songwriter Mathieu Emond in September 2011, the project has now grown to a full band, with Bryan Harn on bass, Curtis Smith on keys, and Lindsay Brin on drums - and everyone on vocals. They count as their influences bands such as Radiohead, Wintersleep, Coldplay and The Arcade Fire. Sometimes driving and edgy, sometimes thoughtful and spacious, sometimes sexy and sweet, their songs are propelled by driving bass groves and soaring melodies, telling stories of love, loss and longing. The result is a dynamic and passionate blend that has been energizing audiences throughout New Brunswick.


Since the formation, Cursees Connect was featured in the ECMA's Rocks Compilation 2014 with the song Elmwood Cemetery, as well as being featured in The Brunswickan, L'Acadie Nouvelle, HERE Magazine and online.  Cursees Connect has released their first EP in August 2014.  They also performed alongside Les Cowboys Fringants during the Congres Mondial Acadien in August 2014.  More dates are adding up in the Maritimes and a full album is already in the works.

Lyrics

Elmwood Cemetery

Written By: Mathieu Emond

I'm tired of avoiding the cracks on the pavement
A walk in the cemetery should be a nice change of pace
The sun rays down on the stone,
Warming the flesh but not the bones.
I wonder if they ever passed through the pearly gates?

A nice vacation
A simple getaway

Return Policy

Written By: Mathieu Emond

I should've had said no
I should've had said no
I should've had...

I should've had said no
I should've had said no

Fasten your mind
Fasten your mind

Fly?
Fly!

The parking lot is hazing
My former friend is leaving
The parking lot is hazing
You're tripping balls, I'm leaving

Fly!

You ain't never coming down
You ain't never coming down
You ain't never coming down
You ain't never coming down

Long Sinful Daze, lost in a haze
Long Sinful Daze, lost in a haze
So lost...

Regrets

Written By: Mathieu Emond

They comfort you when the news bad
Make you love moments you've never had
Your dreams are smoother, your sleep serene
So much happiness in the unseen

It's like taking the way home
When all the streets are wrong
You feel the address in your mind
But the right way you can never find

And you get there exhausted
Always a hundred daylights behind

Your regrets are your candle lights
So vintage, a warm delight
But the comfort get's cold 'cause you're so alone
Swallow the pill and then drift on...

And you get there exhausted
Always a hundred daylights behind.

Mayan Star

Written By: Mathieu Emond

The snow falls up North
Not a soul in my window
Ceramic skin and jade eyes

Just chilling there outside
Waiting for time to spend down South
To watch the sunset settle in

I'll worship you from afar
Just as Mayans did the stars
Pray you'll keep evil at bay
Hope you'll bring me sunny days.

Warm up the car
A hundred miles isn't that far
But I feel so secure in here
And summertime is pretty near

I'll worship you from afar
Just as Mayans did the stars.
