Hiva Oa Belfast, UK

With the release of their forthcoming EP, core members departed Edinburgh, returning to their native Ireland seeking renewed inspiration. Hiva Oa retain the mystery and ambition of their former incarnations, but inject a heavy thrum to their intricate patchwork style, and turn their attentions to themes of loneliness, abandonment and awakening. ... more

Track Name: So Many Lies
So Many Lies

Bygones will be gone.

You have not suffered for our rights.
We have suffered all this while, for your lies.

I strayed long enough to simulate life.

You stole it all in front of my eyes.
I wasted enough for you to gather it all, for lies.

I waited my turn to fall in line.
Wherever you are, the other will hide.

For our lives.
Track Name: Astroturfing
A solid life. sold as lies.
While so and so, hangs around.
Wait a minute, let me in
I found another way
Another way to see this through.
Lets take another little pill
I promise not to let you leave.
Just take another little pill.
I promised I would see this through.

My life by your side
Your eyes, now blind
I’m alive when I’ve restrained myself
I saw myself as what?
My pride?
Your life is not worth it
I’m alive when you’re beside yourself
I soiled myself, and for what?
Track Name: Only 2 Things
Only two things
I’ve seen it all
for now, for now.

You can figure it out. Here comes the return.

Have I seen the whites of your eyes
I can’t recall.

Wish you’d called, wished you’d come round.
Wished it all. Pushed away.
Here they come.

When I see you arch.
I recharge.

Settle down.
