PASSERINE: SOUNDS FROM A DISCO, SOMEWHERE BETWEEN NEW YORK AND JAMAICA…

Say hello to Passerine and … first single ‘Ready To Begin’ from the debut Passerine EP. It’s a bit dub and a bit disco and a whole lot of under the skin addictiveness in one great track. If you like your band driven tracks with references from the likes of LCD Soundsystem, Moloko and The Rapture, we reckon you should definitely be getting onboard the Passerine express. (yourmusicradar.com)

Elements of dub, disco, trip hop and jazz combine to create this soulful, hook-laden, band-driven indie pop gem. Infectiously energetic, this song brims with memorable hooks, vibrant female vocals, lyrical depth and organic, band-driven instrumentation.

Sounds just like dancing barefoot on a beach.

lyrics

I breathe the winds of change
Can you feel them on your skin
We always walk the line
Of what has and hasn't been
Foreign lands lie ahead
Hard to understand
Tomorrow watches you
I'll see you there, my friend

Regret will not be your cross to bear
I promise you, I swear
Regret will not be your cross to bear
I promise you, I swear

Close your eyes
Hold on tight
The water’s deep
We just dive in
Nothing can prepare you
When you're ready to begin
(repeat)

Braver than a lion
When you were a child
Now the magic's gone
Where did you lose your smile
Only words hold you here
Time to let them go
Live in the light
This story's now your own

PRE CHORUS

CHORUS

Everything changes
Nothing remains frozen
Even the hardest stone
Shaped by the ocean
This life you've built
And hold so dear
Is it, is it
Built on fear?

PRE CHORUS
