about

The main difference between the first and second EP is time itself. When we went into record our first EP we had only been a band a few months and the songs we recorded were the first we had written. Over time we were able to build on our sound and spend more time developing songs in order to find our own way. Johnny wrote songs for the second EP on an acoustic guitar so there was no hiding behind effects and found this way he could pay more attention to the chord progressions and melodies. Songs came in very ‘unfinished’ however so that when we worked on them as a band they had a lot of room to move. Favourite songs on the EP are those that came out nothing like how they were expected, whether that be due to a guitar part added or bass or drum rhythm that changed the dynamic completely. In contrast songs written by Chris were generally completed and worked over by everyone adding their own influences. Similarly, with allowing more time each song was developed in a very natural way. Haunted Isles is very much where we are at as a band now. The progression, change and maturity is all evident.

about

Bloodhounds On My Trail Melbourne, Australia

A love of shoegaze bands of the late 1980s to early 90s provided the catalyst for the formation of the band. Since then, members Johnny Green (guitar, vocals), Chris Donaldson (guitar), Che Walden (bass) and Nik Donaldson (drums) have sought to fuse the rhythmic underpinnings of bands like the Velvet Underground and the Stooges with the dream haze of Cocteau Twins and Slowdive. ... more

Track Name: Over The Wall
Meet me by the gate
But remember that it’s not that hard
When there’s only, there’s only one yard
I kissed her in the site of his gun
I wonder if he knew this was love
He keeps watching, so we wouldn’t go far

Meet me at midday,
On the diamond where the baseballs played
I wanna talk, about a plan I want to talk Escape, I’m gonna make it out someday
I’m going straight over the wall
And if they shoot me down, I wouldn’t even know at all

She said, hang around
Like a ghost, in a bookshelf
I found you, don’t leave now
She said, stick around
It’s so lonely, so ghostly
But mostly, I just miss you dearly

The barbers got a blade
He comes around once a week
Sometimes you close your eyes and you hope he might cut too deep
For a pack of cigarettes he’ll push down
He’ll send you straight to hell boy,
A small price to pay, if you really want to get away
Track Name: Loop
I don’t want to be safe and warm, I want to be danger and cold
Send shivers down your spine from time to time
Make you want me more, until you’re knocking on my door
As it echoes down the hall and off the floor

Take the time to tell the one you love,
Just a little might mean a ton,
It could mean everything

I don’t want to feel this no more, high low I feel sick now
And these thoughts down memory lane all seem the same
Killing time in a noisy mind, I can’t find no rhyme or reason
To spend my days sitting ‘round thinking what I’ve done

Take the time to tell the one you love,
Just a little might be enough,
It could mean everything

I’m on the turn of a low tide
On the cusp of a high
And it feels nice
On the brink of a new dream
The cup now seems half full
And it’s wonderful
Track Name: Sink
I saw you pull up & with the engine off
You cried, staying outside.
I heard you downstairs it carried through the hall
All night, tortured silence
Alone, alone, alone

No surprise, no surprises love
Just how long will you sink alone

Is there heaven in your eyes or are you just faking it
Is there heaven in your eyes

No surprise, no surprises love
Just how long will you sink alone
How low, how shallow
No surprise, no surprises love

You grab the blanket & turn yourself away
Sleep tight
Dreaming away
Alone, alone, alone

Is there heaven in your eyes or are you just faking it
Is there heaven in your eyes
Is there something in your heart is it something that you regret
Is there heaven in your eyes

No surprise, no surprises love
Just how long will you sink alone
How low, how shallow
No surprise, no surprises love
Track Name: Places Like This
This town this town
Boy it brings me down
I'm glad I got out
Did it for myself
Thirty thousand people and they're all doing the same thing
Brings me down
Down
Track Name: Words Like Weapons
As you choke the tears back
As you walk away
I get it, I get it
Woke up in a cold sweat
Without you by my side
I get it, I get it

Maybe I've had it, maybe I'm wrecked
Maybe I could be a better man
Maybe I'm fed up, maybe I'm weak
Maybe I should be a better man

As show me your back
As you turn away
I get it, I get it
My words cut the deepest
My words make you hurt
I get it, I get it
I should just stay quiet
Keep it all inside
I get it, I get it

Maybe I've had it, maybe I'm wrecked
Maybe I could be a better man
Maybe I'm fed up, maybe I'm weak
Maybe I should be a better man
