Biography

Long considered one of the best pop bands in Canada, the Heavy Blinkers have reached a new maturity with this stunningly orchestrated pop masterpiece.

Two years in the making, "The Night And I Are Still So Young" consolidates the nocturnal orchestrations of the Flaming Lips and Mercury Rev and grafts them onto material akin to 70's era Beach Boys, Harry Nilsson or Randy Newman. This album finds the five Blinkers collaborating with over 25 auxilliary players to help create a symphonic tapestry that is as rich and dense as you're likely to hear this year.

The Blinkers are already busy working of the follow up to The Night And I Are Still So Young that will include guest performances by Sondre Lerche, Jeff Lynn (ELO, Traveling Wilburys) and other friends and fans. A European tour is also in the works as well as production on their 2nd music video, which will be fully animated.

Lyrics

Try Telling That To My Baby

Written By: The Heavy Blinkers

in the dark night I can be a shining light, baby
I could be a leading light out to love if she'd just let me

I know that love could grow
but try tellin that to my baby
I dont know why shes tearing apart my world

need to see her now before I take this final vow baby
before I take this final bow out of love, she could save me

I know that love could grow
but try tellin that to my baby
I dont know why shes tearing apart my world

in the dark night I can be a shining light, baby
I could be a leading light out to love if she'd just let me
