Connor Brindamour This album is one of many that got me through 2018! Revisting this album makes me wanna sing and reveal my dark depressed side. Hollow makes me wanna reveal my darker side alongside wall, got a light, no time, alone, waste and every other track known by whispering sons that is an infectious and brooding track.

Stalemate 03:52
subtle as a ghost you surround the very space I’m in determine the shape I’m in and I’m faced with a sudden scare it’s everywhere subtle as a ghost you derange this maze I’m in agitate this race I’m in and I’m faced with a sudden scare it’s everywhere as roads collide and I with them madness manifests itself though I feel alive for an instant numbness is closing in I wear the marks of this feeling I wear the marks of this feeling and I’ll bear it an abandoned car radio cries my soul is in pretty good shape and so am I as roads collide and I with them madness manifests itself though I feel alive for an instant numbness is closing in I wear the marks of this feeling I wear the marks of this feeling and I’ll bear it

Got A Light 05:20
in this blank night I’ll see their blank faces mutating into something that’s even less they drain the city, dry the pools of consciousness they drain the city, dry the pools of consciousness how are you feeling? good how are you feeling? good and the conversation rises and then slowly fades into silence how are you feeling? good how are you feeling? good I want to sleep and everything seems less like itself and more like everything else there was never meant to be clarity there was never meant to be clarity how are you feeling? good I’m not losing it all the time how are you feeling good?

Alone 03:56
in one second it becomes a still life shutting in and shutting out and I know I’m racing myself to the point of no return they move so slowly when they’re not afraid and I just keep moving at a different rate it’s a kind of stillness, I can’t relate they move so slowly when they’re not afraid I’m outside I’m out of sight shutting in and shutting out and I know I’m racing myself to the point of no return they move so slowly when they’re not afraid and I just keep moving at a different rate it’s a kind of stillness, I can’t relate they move so slowly when they’re not afraid

Skin 04:20
everything drifts in and out of time nothing stays nothing ever changes and I wanted to give you all but there was nothing left to give I read your skin then I tore it off it’s a bare future lying ahead of us but please don’t say it was a waste of time we were not wasting time we were not wasting time because you only know its value when it’s gone it’s only memorable by the scars it leaves
5.
No Time 05:23
nervous laughter nervous laughter nervous laughter surrounding me it’s a pressing silence depressing silence in which words resonate like bare fists bashing the gates my bare fists embrace the bricks my bare fists embrace the bricks the streets bleed but the city still stands it looks familiar but I can’t remember it looks familiar but I can’t remember they are still feeling good and at least the food is fine but I’m sick of the dust on their words so I just cough and smile so they keep quiet and I repeat myself this speech is a performance I repeat myself behind the words is chaos I repeat after someone else I repeat after everyone else it sounds familiar, but I can’t remember it sounds familiar, but I can’t remember they are still feeling good and at least the food is fine but I’m sick of the dust on my words so I just cough and smile nervous laughter nervous laughter nervous laughter surrounding me

Fragments 04:10
it’s been a pretty fight despite being motionless caressing casualties feel tragedy in their fingers the tragedy in their minds disguised by emptiness flawing precision a momentary weakness they say it’s good to feel shiver shed some tears I’m crying for more disasters and calamities they say it’s good to feel stabbed through the flesh shed some tears pieces of people fall over the edge carelessly craving something one day I’ll be lying there it’s been a pretty fight despite being motionless carefully sculptured though disfigured and deluded they say it’s good to feel shiver shed some tears I’m crying for more disasters and calamities they say it’s good to feel stabbed through the flesh shed some tears pieces of people fall over the edge carelessly craving something one day I’ll be lying there

Hollow 04:22
it’s barren land and hollow men chanting children holding hands and they dance I’ve been here for too long but there’s straw inside my head an artificial stillness but the wind still cuts like glass and this desert’s turning cold a deserted kingdom where the fever only grows and this is the dead land this is the mad land and life is very long when you’re stuck in existence is this the way the world ends is this the way the world ends and life is very long when you’re stuck in existence
8.
Waste 04:26
fragile figure don’t speak the texture of your words tortures me deep blue desert desperate idea the pleasure of her touch tortures me surging blood boiling streets the pressure of my thoughts tortures me I can’t see I can’t see I won’t accept except my own ideas it’s a perversity that’s slowly spiralling down in me fragile figure I want to make you scream the texture of your cries pleasures me I can’t see I can’t see I won’t accept except my own ideas it’s a perversity that’s slowly spiralling down in me it’s a perversity I don’t know if I care
9.
Dense 03:10
in this scene of disordered senses in this scene of disordered senses I try to relive I’ll take my chances I hang my head down and I’m shaking I hang my head down and I’m wasted I know it’s over my time is over it’s a sea of heated bodies it’s a sea of heated bodies in which I’m drowning as it surrounds me in this scene of dissonant essence in this scene of dissonant essence I rediscovered I rediscovered my own senselessness in this scene of disordered senses in this scene of disordered senses I try to relive I’ll take my chances I hang my head down and I’m shaking I hang my head down and I’m wasted I know it’s over my time is over and I can’t deny I can’t take it I don’t care to see I can’t take it I can’t

No Image 05:43
they take me to the end of myself they take me to the end I don’t see what they see in myself I don’t see what they see how much I like to transgress the sanctity of this scenery obliterate the imagery that hangs over me like a gown and all the while their voices sing I just keep humming along how hard I want to laugh with the absurdity of this scenery obliterate the imagery that hangs over me like a gown and all the while their voices sing I just keep humming along first a stone then a form a statue wrapped in cloth first the fire then the fog a statue wrapped in cloth I exhaust myself trying to see I exhaust myself how much I like to transgress the sanctity of this scenery obliterate the imagery that hangs over me like a gown and all the while their voices sing I just keep humming along first a stone then a form a statue wrapped in cloth first the fire then the fog a statue wrapped in cloth first a stone then a form a statue wrapped in cloth first the fire then the fog a statue wrapped in cloth

about

'Image' is a motionless state in which observations overshadow actions. Yet its intensity is unrelenting. The ten tracks evoke feelings of alienation and irreality, wrapped in a sound both urging and raw. 'Image' is artificial at times, but honest to the core. Whispering Sons debut album is out October 19th on Pias/Smile.
