Where Orchids Goes To Die - Wet Little Bird

Recommended Posts

Hi all,
here's a brand new release by Where Orchids Goes to Die

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDRiuqkAdbk

"This song narrates the story of Mogoro’s Maidens based on a traditional local tale.

Every night, in procession, dressed in white, they pass through the street, which begins with the main church to arrive at “Su Cramu”. Detached from the others, there is a solitary maiden with wet hair. Along the path, she stops to speak to an old lady, sitting outside her home to get some fresh air during a hot summer night. She asks the old lady to tell her mother to stop crying for her death: her tears wet the maiden, making her heavy, holding her from reaching her sisters.

Dedicated to who's gone and who stays."

all music has been produced and recorded with maschine mk3 and komplete kontrol S49 Mk2

comments and feedbacks welcome
best regards

nice recording job.have the singer sing a second time and mix both voices together,or copy paste first track to another and that track move ahead a couple clicks as this will help with some intonation with her voice.jack c.

lyrics: 

The street is so long

city lights are far away

I walk with this pain

my feets as mug

are glued to the ground

 

Shivering like a wet little bird

a small little bird in pain

cannot reach its distant white maids

small little bird in pain

 

Tell mama don’t cry, don’t be sad

my sisters went so far

Tell mam don’t cry, to free myself

her tears are drowning me

 

I can’t go with them, cause I need to rest

step after step, I can’t reach them

look at my white dress

and my hair is wet

your tears slow down my steps

 

Your tears are rain to me

my eternal cage

my desire to be free

all the love you gave to me

like the day I spread my wings

finally let me go

finally let me die

Dark and foreboding, Claudio's trademark!

Glad to see Where Orchids Goes To Die is (are?) alive and kicking...

t

"the band name seems gramatically wrong, but we use "Orchids" as an eponymous"

So, if I read you correctly, even though the s in Orchids implies plural,
Orchids is indeed singular in this usage...

@DeeringAmps thx so much for your feedabck. yes we're are still on also with pandemic. we're working on new material
as you notice the band name seems gramatically wrong, but we use "Orchids" as an eponymous because rapresent some sort of ancient god that are in our imaginary and lyrics

yes correct, we play with this "confusion" in our lyrics

The lyric and story told are very interesting.  The dark music is a perfect accompaniment and the video really ties everything together.

Very good production ----- it all works!

This is so different that I'll go to bed happy tonight!  A good example of art vs. commercialism.  Thanks for putting up the lyrics, they're very interesting.  I'll be listening some more.
