I had plans to save the planet
but they got washed down a stormwater drain
it’s all too big, it’s all too hard
dropped my guard, and i missed the last train
compass needle spinning
now i’m lost inside my head
For the first time in almost three years, Rivermouth is very excited to be releasing a new single! Yay!!!
(Just in time for a three-set launch party at Woodford Folk Festival)
This new track, Dole, will also appear on our first full-length album, which we’re looking forward to releasing in the new year. The lyrics were written a couple of years ago now, but are sadly still pretty relevant.
Welfare payments remain well below the poverty line, even as living costs rise and other support services suffer further funding cuts. All the while, privileged politicians and neoliberal commentators continue to spin the lie that if people are poor, it’s their own fault. We expect different listeners will find their own meanings and messages in the song, but that’s kinda the point.
It’s available on Bandcamp on a pay-what-you-can-afford basis. We don’t expect to make any money off this album, but it would be nice to at least cover recording costs if possible. (But don’t feel bad about downloading it for free if you can’t afford anything)
Spread it around and keep your ear out for album updates. Enjoy!
Love and respect,
(Jo Sri, Caroline Townsend, Geoff Wong, Andrew Carter)
