about

A Genuine Freakshow are an artful blend of pop sensibility, icy soundscapes and blistering walls of noise. Their sound, while impressively focused, covers a range of musical staples, with the group letting influences from Mew to Sigur Ros and The National surface throughout. Originally planned to be part of a new album, the songs on "Where The River Bends" ended up being a complete story on their own, so the band decided to release these tracks as a special EP.

Track Name: Low
We're so low
And you're so strong
We're so low
You fix everyone

And it tears me apart
Turn my Hats around
Her frown upside down

We're so low
And you're so strong
We're so low
You fix everyone

And it tears me apart
Turn my Hats around
Her frown upside down

We're so low
And you're so strong
Track Name: Claw and Grasp
The words of an oracle
Measured and weighed
Cost of your exit
The price if you stay

I buried a memory
On which we lay
The grave of a decoy
That led me astray

And it's unsettling

Out of the contours
All up in lights
A slight in the incline
My only device

Semi professional
At breaking you heart
Got lost in the mire
Go back to the start

And it's unsettling still

We salvage order from the chaos
The universal way
With nothing that lacks and nothing of luxury
Just the promise of a better day
Track Name: Albert Trophy
Everything, and I mean everything
Stops with one look from your eyes

All of us, every one of us
Goes up, up, up and away to the skies
Oh where should I go, what should I say and who is watching us

Well there's love when you like

Considerate, downright delicate
Our hands, keep us close through the days

Dreams we had
Our like distant lands
No hop, skip or jump out the way
Past this pain

All of us, every one of us
Goes up, up, up and away to the skies
Oh where should I go, what should I say and who is watching us
Track Name: Where the River Bends
Rest your head where it has landed
In Greenholme's eves we'll lay, we're stranded

And we'll run the whole route alone
Through Iron Row's playing fields
To the place that we called our home

Sing fair thee well
To the grounds where we once stood
In a haze, a smoke
Where the river bends no more

Bat on ball and feet to leather
To the Queen's to drink in shelter

And we'll run the whole route alone
Through Iron Row's playing fields
To the place that we called our home

Sing fair thee well
To the grounds where we once stood
In a haze, a smoke
Where the river bends no more
