"After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music." Aldous Huxley, Music at Night and Other Essays
Part of the 2014 thing is to get new music 'out there' (even demos) instead of having them languish on random hard drives collecting digital dust.
A picture of a night scene in beautiful Iceland inspired this song, Ice and Snow. It's about contrasts in life. If I still like it next week it will be arranged and recorded properly but for now here's the first draft. The inspirational image can be seen on our Facebook page, posted 29th January.
In 2011 we had the great fortune of having our song They Say Surrender from the Aqualash EP Blue Notes placed in the fantastic horror comedy film "The Revenant". Fans of the film from all over the world have contacted us to say how much they love the song and it's fantastic to be part of that community. If The Revenant is what has brought you here, Welcome! Just this year the soundtrack for the film has been released and we're in great company! It's available on CD and LP vinyl and you can find it here.
The Revenant Soundtrack
Space Cowboys (Single. Released May 2012)
You know when you gaze into the night sky and find yourself reeling with the infinite possibilities... This song is about wishing for fantastic adventures to be had by hitching a ride on the next shooting star - the next Space Cowboy.
Try (Just a Little Bit Harder) (Single. Released June 2012)
Yes, you know this song well. Really well. But it may take a verse or two to recognise on first listen. One of our favourites as performed by Janis Joplin, Try (Just a Little Bit Harder) is our first cover release, and while it remains completely intact, is now distinctly Aqualashian.
Strange Victory (Single. Released June 2012)
Released while visiting New York - her city of dreams - in 2012, Strange Victory is Sarah Lorien's debut solo release. It is the sound of anger-tinged heartache in that raw, disecting-the-details stage of a break up. Just be sure to follow it up with listening to I'm Not Sorry from the CD "Aqualash" because the deliciously nonplussed peace of being SO over it is just around the corner. "Your every word, your very name, are to my heart as Novocaine."
