about

Musically revelrous, but lyrically so very much about death; that's the bargain struck by Not Waving But Drowning on this, their third record. "Red Hand" alludes to thievery of all sorts - whether through the tale of a cross-dressing bandit of the 1600s, the relentless creep of Alzheimer's disease, or the intrigues of a courtesan turned international spy. Nearly all ending in the demise, timely or not, of the songs' protagonists.These, and other such tales, populate "Red Hand" with a compelling cast of characters and narratives, pushed onward and upward by the band's myriad blend of musical sounds and styles.

Sky luminescence

Ali Luminescent, keep coloring outside the lines!

Charlie smiles, leans
back on his Throne of Shotguns
Whispers two words: "horse ..."

From Singapore shores
come warm winds, tomorrow's sun
and a gift from Max

Straggled, salt-pepper
beard belie mischievous boy

Ice skates on North Lake
Trace a path across our hearts

—NWBD
