about

This EP took roughly 280 days to complete. We recorded instrumentals and guitar solos at the bar pictured and overdubs & SFX with mindfulvibrations.audio. We would like to thank everyone at Cosmo's for letting us rehearse and record there for innumerable nights; having a place to think and write and play made the production of this EP very special indeed.

about

Civil Serpents Sydney, Australia

Hatched in 2014, Civil Serpents introduced a unique blues-rock sound to audiences around Sydney. In 2015, the band independently produced and released their first single; I Met My Baby In A Haze. A high energy rock track designed to be played loud. The B-side is a 12 bar original where Matt's blues influences are made clear over the steady groove laid down by Boris and Jonathan.
Expect more soon!

Track Name: Keep Away the Blues
I have no interest in what you do
I don't care who you talk to
I only know about the way you move
So please won't you move for me keep away the blues

Most pretty girls they jump and shout
But you know what it's all about
Please don't leave me, don't shut me out
Please won't you move for me keep the blues out
Track Name: The Sky A Monolith
Look upon a monolith sky
Each star an opening to my eye
opening lines of wind cry
as my mind rolls down hill

Tap upon my window sill
I take apart the time to kill
A hammer on your window sill
I take apart the time

A stranger asks me with a smile
if I would like to stay a while
for another cup of wine
I say thank you but i must decline
Track Name: Little Red Rooster
I am the little red rooster, too lazy to crow for day
yes i'm the little red rooster, too lazy to crow for day
keeps everything in this barn yard
upset in every way

The dogs begin to bark and the hounds begin to howl
yes the dogs begin to bark and the hounds begin to howl
watch out strange cat people
little red is on the prowl

If you see my little red, please drive him home
yes if you see my little red, please drive him home
ain't nothing been quite right here
Since my little red been gone

I am the little red rooster, too lazy to crow for day
yes I'm the little red rooster, too lazy to crow for day
keeping everything in this barn yard
upset in every way
