about

"Waxlimbs’ World Makers is the consequence of overexposure to suburban landscapes, a psychotic lapse induced by fields of concrete and shopping complexes — a perfectly rational adjustment to a mad milieu. Yet, the puzzlement found here is not without its concomitant of clarity and insight, an enduring sanity which sublimates the moments of tension and anxiety into the more colourful instances embedded within the album’s 15-track progression. Organic synth textures and drum sequencing serve as a mode of representation for the kind of inner subjective state wherein one finds themselves aware that they breath, eat, sleep, and defecate in a suburban town, and are condemned to do so again tomorrow. World Makers is the translation of this spatio-temporal situation — and the internal context it brings with it — into a series of landscapes carved out in sound, communicating the emotions invoked by the suburban scenes they designate in reality."
-Pavan Brar, Weird Canada

Track Name: Friends
Late again
Spun outside under star night
Heavy words come alive
Breathe

Oxygen
We know we
Won't learn alone
Friends make breath gasoline
Fire away

Up and gone
Thinks he's got it figured out
Hope he's got it all made
Goodbye
She's long-lost
Not aware she's spinning out
Control
She’s only afraid
Of goodbye

Amazingly
We will open the gates in ourselves
Again, again

And we can
re-invent

Everything
The roads that reach the lake
Or the mere
Lying here
On a rock looking out
To broader plains

Newer space
And we're high enough
To believe we can reach it
With each other at our sides.

*

Let's dig
And plant maps in our heads
Then our
Bonds will
Stretch further, tangles of
Before
You and I were all alone buried in this earth.

You know he
Won’t be
Coming home
Not this year anyway.

And we know she

Lost her mind
Isn't going to make it back
Just like him she's alone
Just like us.

But we can lie
Beneath stars and non-ideas
Plotting out new paths
With our friends.

Drained again
Spun outside under star-night
Heavy words come alive...
Track Name: Quiet Symmetry
We are so quiet
And we speak in the tongues of the land
We cultivate the sky
We explore the space around us
We live a life of symmetry
And speak in the tongues of the land.
