about

Watch the stop motion short film that this music is based around at:

www.flood.aintfriends.com

The Flood of 1924 is a short, stop motion animated film created by Christopher Postill and Colleen Mckeown (aka “We Ain’t Friends”). It took them forever, and they are both now partially insane. Here is the synopsis…

“After a flood has covered her hometown, a young girl makes it her nightly routine to row out into the night in search of signs of her companion. The unusual friends share broken conversations through notes in bottles.”

This EP expands on the short film with 25 minutes of original music that takes listeners through the events occuring just before and during the flood itself. Somewhere between a film score, an experimental folk album, and an old-fashioned radioplay, this album takes listeners further into the world that We Ain’t Friends have created with their film. Listening to this EP feels like listening to a journal; dark, epic and a little lonely, albeit lonely with a wide-eyed protagonist.

Track Name: Over Your Flowers
Bless all
Bless all the fires, grow
Over
Over the flowered skulls

I'm sending down
My kisses in the whales

You, like a forest
Such a large and vibrant forest
Like the winds
That blow the sailors

I'll change your home
With a window
All my love to you
My love to you
Goes
Track Name: Lights Up
Lifeboats and ferries
Lie further down

I've been hoping
I've been waiting
I've been looking down for you

My favorite gut
Oh, says so
I'm all alone

Waiting
I've been looking
Calling out to you
