BandRockAlternative

The Spiracles is fresh, dynamic, indie pop between melancholic and happiness which seeks to conceal emotions through sensitive lyrics and sounds that often takes you to the dance floor.

Biography

Comprised of transplants from as far as Peru and as near as Southern Ontario, the Spiracles music captures an elusive, hauntingly beautiful and melancholic sound. An eighties/nineties era undertone can be sensed in the music of the indie pop band.

While influenced by the likes of the Cocteau Twins, Slowdive, REM, the Field Mice, Jars of Clay, Metric, Always, and The Cranberries.

The Spiracles construct a sound that is unique to them as they continue to flush out and create new material with a fresh collective of collaborators; forming a tight, hypnotic, and talented group.

The lovely vocals, harmonies and melodies, of Reiva Moreau transcend to fuse with ear tingling walls of guitar from Luis Rodriguez, Alex Arce’s full bouncing bass, and the dynamically exhilarating drums of Conor Freeborn.

Their often-melancholic songs are infused with a spirited uplifting mood making for a perfect storm.

Look forward to hearing new material from this talented band and please follow the Spiracles on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube. You will not be disappointed.

Lyrics

Fireflies

Written By: Rodriguez

Light the candles of the night
turn the lights off inside
as long as you can
I picture you in many ways
I picture you in many shapes
as long as I can.

The clock is ticking
my heart is beating
as fireflies
I can't take it with out you
My life is fading
The light is blinding
as fireflies
I can't take it with out you

Like fireflies at night
I see your eyes upon mine
as long as I can
Whispering in my ear
I'd like to hear you say
our love will last

The clock is ticking
my heart is beating
as fireflies
I can't take it with out you
My life is fading
The light is blinding
as fireflies
I can't take it with out you

Mercy

Written By: Rodriguez

Beyond the immense reality
you rest today
Seated in that ancient sofa
you dream today

Maybe you should think what it would be without you
No mercy

Light that shines on my eyes
you dawn today
Crystal water falls on me
you appear today

Maybe you should think what it would be without you
No mercy

You feel comfort from my loneliness
Even going without being able to forget
Maybe you should think what it would be without you
No mercy

End Of The Affair

Written By: Wratten/Hiscock

This is it, isn't it?
This is the end
For you and I
For you and I

The end of the affair
We no longer care
For each other

Once I needed you so
Once I needed you so
Now I can't stand being in the same room as you
I can't even stand the sight of you

This is it, isn't it?
This is it, isn't it?
This is it, isn't it?
This is it, isn't it?
This is it, isn't it?
This is it, this is the end
For you and I

This is it, isn't it?
(I don't love you)
This is it, isn't it?
(anymore, and you)
This is it, isn't it?
(don't love me)
This is it, isn't it?
(anymore now)
This is it, isn't it?
(do you?)
This is it, this is the end
For you and I

Hot Day

Written By: Rodriguez

I lay down
on the rooftop and watch the stars falling down
The night was warm
and I saw your eyes reflects on the reservoir

And I think about your love...

Chorus:
Hot day, why don't you just be the same
Hot day, just don't go away.

Rest your head
and start to see how deep and strong our love is
The photograph
reflects the fear of getting caught by our love

And I think about you now...

Chorus:
Hot day, why don't you just feel the same
Hot day, just don't go away.

Hot day, why don't you just be the same
Hot day, just don't go away.
Hot day, why don't you just feel the same
Hot day, just don't go away.
Try to escape
hold my hand tight then we run away
out of space
before the day is close the end.

Trust

Written By: Rodriguez

Four hundred reasons I have
One hundred days you take
but you have abused all my trust.
Nobody will trust you again
if you keep doing the same but everything you have to say
...well nevermind.

I have waited too long
Now my love (in you) has gone
That was more than enough.
Nobody will trust you again
if you keep doing the same
When will you stop telling me all these lies?

Bridge
Stop telling me lies and save your breathe for someone else.
Stop telling me tales and hold your breath for somebody else.

It Shines On You

Written By: Rodriguez

I have heard you say
that your illusions have gone
Love will ease your pain
I have heard you say
that you have wrecked your life.
Don't be afraid of the world we're living in.

Chorus:
I'm walking,
I'm walking beside you.
I'm running,
I'm running behind you.

I have heard you say
that you've been pushed down
You won't feel defeated.
The sun will rise and will shine on you
It is time to smile and light your path.

Chorus:
I'm walking,
I'm walking beside you.
I'm running,
I'm running behind you.

So Far Away

Written By: Rodriguez

Inside his empty room
All is lost, all is gone
A radio, a fan, a bed, and
flowers on the desk

Everyday he comes in
Lies face up looking at the stars
Bittersweet memories come, and
everything becomes dark or clear

You feel alone because
everybody is far away from you (so far, so down)

Beneath A Sky Of Stars

Written By: Bouchard/Rodriguez

Love is like a winding garden path
Fireflies alighting on our laps
Your heart will know the truth
Once the skylight moon comes into view

Chorus
Let’s go to the golden, thread of dawn
Our love is a boat and
I’ll hold you in my arms tonight
I’ll hold you it’ll be all right, the
Roll of the ocean can be heard
In the shell of my heart, when
You lean into my arms and sigh
The heavens needn’t pass us by

I’ve never loved one more, and that is true
You’re all I’ll ever need to cling on to
Whether we make it we’ll never know
Unless we dare to take it where we’ve never gone

Bridge
Two hearts inside of me
The joy you know I feel when you’re beside me
We’ll row to a quiet beach and
Glide ashore

Chorus
Let’s go to the golden, thread of dawn
Our love is a boat and
I’ll hold you in my arms tonight
I’ll hold you it’ll be all right, the
Roll of the ocean can be heard
In the shell of my heart, when
You lean into my arms and sigh
The heavens needn’t pass us by

Let go, open up your heart and
Let’s go, beneath a sky of stars, then
And if we run away, run away you know I will be with you
And if we run away, run away, I’ll never, ever leave you
On the moon and the stars, it’s true

Who's To Blame?

Written By: Rodriguez

Sixteen years have been passed
since he was born
He took an easy way to live
Walk on by and sleep in the street

Chorus
What's the matter with you boy
just go back home
Don't blame the society
it didn't hurt you at all

All his hopes and all his dreams
has gone thru
He is not sorry for the way he is
and he said: "It's all one and the same to me"

Chorus
What's the matter with you boy
just go back home
Don't blame the society
it didn't hurt you at all

Unkissed Girl

Written By: Rodriguez

Everytime she comes in
to think about love
She never feels, she never seems
as the unkissed girl.
Nobody knows what she feels inside
not to be in love
They never seek, they’ll never find
the unkissed girl.
She sits around the fireplace to think about her love
Now she found a kind of love that makes her glow

Chorus:
I am not afraid
I am not the unkissed girl
I am not afraid
for being the unkissed girl.

Everytime I see your smile I feel something inside
I won't give up, I won't decline
You are my unkissed girl.
Nobody knows what I feel inside not to have your love
I would like to take you out
and make you mine.
She sits around the fireplace to think about her love
Now she found a kind of love that makes her glow

Chorus:
I am not afraid
I am not the unkissed girl
I am not afraid
for being the unkissed girl.
Now I’ve had you kiss,
it really seems as stars falling down
