about

The second EP by City Water offers a dark and lush palette of aural velvet that draws influence from sources as diverse as Angelo Badalamenti, Scott Walker, Clint Mansell and Berlin-era David Bowie. Featuring a haunting saxophone and funereal double bass, the EP "2" expands on City Water's burgeoning trademark moments of weightless cinematic builds and minimal lyricism, and introduces a subtle dose of dark, tenebrous jazz.

Track Name: Blackest
i call your name
in my blackest hour
i fall again
in my blackest hour

invisible

colors fade
in my blackest hour
a tromp l'oeil
in my blackest hour

invisible
Track Name: The Man Whom the Trees Loved
angel, mine
hold the light
in the dark i sleep away
in that place
from up high
up above the canopy of night

i'm the man whom the trees loved

angel, mine
bless this child
sing this song
and hold him close
bless the sea
and bless the sky
may they offer dreams tonight
Track Name: Secret Worship
i found a world
in a place of secret worship
i made it all
my place of secret worship

afloat in black
in my place of secret worship
a wooden raft
in my place of secret worship
it's only safe
in my place of secret worship
i can show my face
in my place of secret worship
