Volcano Choir – “Comrade” (Official Audio)

Directed/Shot/Edited by Dan Huiting

It’s been four years since the first Volcano Choir album ‘Unmap’ provided a glimpse into the collaborative mind set between a singer and the band that inspired him. Ideas were minted, written at a distance and realized in the studio; edges sanded back and flaps tucked in, the craftsmanship of the endeavour bearing evidence of the craft itself, and the technology used to assemble it. ‘Unmap’ strove to find strands of life between the ones and zeroes – a carefully constructed narrative that lead the listener through its darkest passages like a tour guide leading their charges through a cave, with nothing but a slack length of rope and the senses of sound and touch. Just as importantly, it brought these people together, setting an expectation for themselves.

Volcano Choir – Comrade Lyrics:
Like I didn’t know it,
Choking on a pulpit, simplify.
You kept me on your long line,
Choking it the whole time, keep shining on.
And that silent minute,
Can’t breathe no more.
I’ve been the poison.
Just tell you there’s a counter.
Oo, that you’re right.
Get out there for a long time,
Sending it on a straight line.
Telling me that it’s okay.
Tell me it’s okay, say that we don’t fight.
Take the fall.
Sent you a comrade,
Taking at your east side.
Don’t let me down here.
There’s a cold wind,
Making comrade awful.
Check at the ocean,
Mind in my almost been a puppet, so the jackpot.
We’ll throw to the jackpot, would you know?
To pull you out tonight.
See you when you come back.
See you when you come back.
For fire and for you.
Bring down the force fields now.
Standing on your puppet,
Staying cautious
When no to love you,
You are just not his son.
