    Thank you to everyone who has pre-ordered our album SYNÆSTHESIA on vinyl to date, your support means the world to us.

    We previously listed this merchandise item as being available from mid-June based on the production timelines quoted to us by the manufacturers. As you well know, many best laid plans have been derailed in recent months due to the necessary restrictions put on day to day business by the New Zealand government to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

    As a result the production of our vinyl release has been delayed by a month, and all pre-orders will now be shipped in the second half of July 2020.

    We apologise for the delay, and will do everything we can to ship your order to you as soon as we are able.

    Includes unlimited streaming of SYNÆSTHESIA via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

about

The meaning of the song speaks to trying to fix what can't be and chasing the wrong things in life. Choosing wisely with your time and what you spend it doing and why. Being aware if you're hiding away your true self or buying things to fill a hole or seeking out addiction cycles. I'm terrified of wasting my life and the world not missing a breath when I go.
The ferryman brings the living over into the world of the dead. When he comes to get me, I want to know I'm ready for the ride.

lyrics

Bearing witness seems to suit you best
Tender touch of the skin
In new robes you're dressed
These days have been making me
A lesser man than I can be
Heartbreak has got the best of me
It buried me and I can't speak
And the world sleeps
As the ferryman sets sail
And we ride the distant sun
I'm lost
I've lost time
Glowing our lonely lungs
Peering at your face so pale
In the shine
Smeared as your teeth show
A happy pantomime
These days have been making me
A lesser man than I can be
Heartbreak has got the best of me
It buried me and I can't breathe
And the world sleeps
As the ferryman sets sail
And we ride the distant sun
I'm lost
I've lost time
Glowing our lonely lungs
Bearing witness seems to suit you best
Tender touch of the skin
In new robes you're dressed
You will own my body
You alone
As we ride on
As we ride on
And we ride the distant sun
I'm lost
I've lost time
Glowing our lonely lungs
And we ride the distant sun
I'm lost
