Slow Death Tone & Regulator

by Kick Ptarmigan

Your eyes to trace the skyline but it doesn't really track The landmark trees have died the plan was never coming back You got the slow death tone, watch the world go on without you The stars enlarge and drift apart This dwelling by the cliffs is not a home Chorus What if I've never been here What if I can never leave The water beats the wind here Can you distinguish it from me Taken home where nothing looks familiar These ancient lives were sanitized Could I have really been here Bored into the stone These pits and spikes have only grown The distance can't be overcome Must be headed home Chorus Enjoy the signal show, the phantoms interact here Hearts are beaten by receding skies The darkened waves below You got the slow death tone And offered to distract her Dive beneath that shining beach each person leaves alone Chorus x2
Regulator 02:55
I fell between the fibers of a very fine weave The gravity to fire this particular me A feather for a flyer a confederacy We're not aligning with the energy thief We're not abiding by the energy thief Regulator Kill to take control, you're a Regulator all your own Send a wire to the man in the dark Setting fire to the haploid patriarch The weather and appendage a commander in chief We're not aligning with the energy thief We're not invited by the energy thief Regulator cure to take control You're a regulator You don't have the space to know You can fight the fight itself you Can't afford the fee You're a Regulator not for me


Over three years after Kick Ptarmigan's sophomore album "Trihornasaurus" was unceremoniously spilled on the lap of an unsuspecting public, we are preparing our next major-ish release. The amply anticipated "Throw Your Phone Off A Bridge" is the product of exhausting work and long hours and persecution complexes that didn't actually have anything to do with these songs, because not everything is about you!

I'm sorry. I've just been under a lot of pressure lately. I don't want to talk about it. So please enjoy a preview of what we have been unnecessarily burdening ourselves with, and keep an eye out for the forthcoming "Throw Your Phone Off A Bridge!"

Kick Ptarmigan Parry Sound

Kick Ptarmigan, having recently devoured local greats the Spins, are set to record their third album this year. They play a unique hybrid of hair metal and doo-wop that sounds suspiciously like indie folk/rock.

Comparisons to Leonard Cohen, Violent Femmes and the Barenaked Ladies have been met with confused stares.
