'April Snow' is taken from the forthcoming self titled debut album, 'The Winter Hill Transmission', released May 2018.


The net worth of everything
That I have just bought
Three oranges, jobs paper and some wine
And I saw
Four little lamb hearts
Pickled in a jar
I decide to settle for
This bleating heart of mine
I'll think about you at the checkout
All the time

But then I meet with friends
Call them friends
They all hold hands
Two by two
Huddled in a row
So I scrape
Up a fifth chair
To four sets of deathly stares
Later they'll play Twister
I'll play Solitaire
His left hand should be on green
I know that it's elsewhere

But I have really let myself go
(I have)
I have really let myself go
My hair is as long
As the dandelion stalks grow

I break into
Detached houses
Walk around them aimlessly
I just like to
Stare at the family photographs
And in one I saw a couple
In a cherry blossom tree
That photograph had quite
The profound effect on me
At 3.31am in some random conservatory

And do you remember
That punch drunk bumble bee
Fizzing in our bedroom curtains
I took a glass and a beermat
Captured it then set it free
But a month on
You were gone
That bee's still haunting me
A little black and yellow striped kamikaze

But I have really let myself go
I have really let myself go
My hair is as long
As the dandelion stalks grow

In the backyard where we once sat
On deckchairs in the April Snow

"One of the strangest, most gloriously original bands I’ve heard for a long time… like Jake Thackray writing lyrics for Crosby, Stills and Nash."
