Wooly Pictures is the first song Tidal Arms wrote as a band. This recording was a stripped down live demo made to test a piece of equipment in our studio, with no intention of release. It's one instrumental take and one overdubbed vocal take. We liked the performance and we're putting it out anyway. We're working on a new record, so here's something to chew on in the meantime. Enjoy!

The image is two closed circuit TVs, one camera on our backline, the other camera facing the TVs.


jaquelin swift would tear around the boatyard
bright mischief she wove
all the fishermen calling up carpenters
shed ships and took to cars

I have tried just to remember
wooly pictures alive in the snow

her face remains just as it was
though mine has grown old
I loved her for a thousand summers
with no thought towards the cold

I have tried just to remember
wooly pictures alive in the snow

she brought me to the march of grey stones
where she would watch the ivy grow
