Life cometh in Turn and turn a roundy nest Green around the circles edge Jealous guard their life within Quick or dead. Quick or dead Pierce the air with gilded tongue Branches thronged with darkening mist Tiny feathered bird The queen of all souls is Life cometh in Turn and turn and turn and turn

There was another world beyond the bough, Left it to falter not safe from the plough. The time it came and didn't need the fight, when they were on our tails we fled the night. In the sunshine we rode the horses. In the sunshine we rode the horses. We sat down and closed our open eyes, just to see that giants carved the lines. and found the truth then to repair, back to the hills no shelter from despair. The giants found us there, the giants found us there Keep our heads tucked low beneath the lines, left for dead those wrongs we can't put right. Out of sight now everything must change, but keep in mind there's only us to blame. In the sunshine we rode the horses. In the sunshine we rode the horses. When the giants came they took their sto--o-o-ones back from our homes Another time had begun to run inside of our own. We'd taken those things that they one held so dear, ploughed through the circles wrenched stones out of there. Burn through the rocks they're easy to steal, Carve up the lands kick the spokes from the wheel. Bury the forest the kings need their crowns, what we can't touch remains deep underground. Fortunes will falter again and again, over and over forever the same. Over and over forever the same. (Over and over and over and over).

Morning, come winter sunlight, breathing new light, on the forest spurs The river, runs right through here, where the silver, swam through the trees Gather around that we may seek, the oaks to shadow the stones Gather and dance down beneath their feet, the rhythms rising out of the ground. Closer, controlling the seasons, building the beacons, to carry the sounds Of lost times, coursing the white hare, and then sleep ‘til, the birds again fly The dark clouds stole the day, and all that we knew had changed We'd live this life to dream again, until nothing, nothing, was left to defend.

Travel through the night Waiting for the light To strike the standing stones And now we are alone. Carved spirals to be found Leading you to be bound No path to point the way This is your dying day And you can see the walls breaking through And their twisted claws grasping you There’s no way to escape the need for you to stay as the meadow hunts you down No bramble from the bough plants you ‘tween the ground Clawing at the bone for all that has been done The cold burns deep inside Reaching from another time Splinters slither in There is bark instead of skin Married to the wood This yoke is well and good To cling to from my arms This meadow and its farms And you can feel the walls tether you And their twisted claws are now you I can’t close my eyes to all the meadow has to bring I am dead inside and I hunger for the spring I lost my place in time now the rot is setting in I want to see some light and I hope we will begin To raise me from the this hole Save me let me roam Wrench me from this hole Raise me and take me home

about

Includes a selection of tracks from the forthcoming album In the Sunshine We Rode the Horses by Rowan : Morrison (The Rowan Amber Mill and Angeline Morrison) alongside bonus non-album tracks.

The album itself explores themes of our beautiful natural surroundings, and how the pursuit of profit guides us to learn 'the cost of everything and the value of nothing', paving the way for the scarring of the landscape with fracking, HS2, retail parks, and so on...

This is explored in the album's narrative, which takes a snapshot of an imagined history of the land. It explores the conflict taking place at the same area (The Ridgeway) through time periods between the land and man with their developing technologies. These events take place throughout time, from pre-history through to the near-future. In a very 1970s "Play for Today" sort of way, they start to bleed into each other as over time, the earth begins to enter a period of hibernation to heal itself from the destruction wrought upon it.

The album itself was recorded in stolen moments, over a handful over years, in various front rooms and back rooms. We hope you enjoy this selection.
