Outside
A yellow moon gives away the night
To morning sun that watches us,
You lay your hand in mine
It's good, so good
Feel the starving light of this day
Can't you?
We know it's good

Over the cities under the stars
Through the volcano surf a river of fire
Hunting with tigers in the grass in the fields
Surfing on rainbows climbing the trees
Winter is never...

Grown up
Haunting me, I've punched a hole in time
On the run, forever from
The whispered words of night
It's good, so good
Feel the starving light on your face
Can't you?
You know it's good

Comic book heroes, hula hoop girls
Pedal to metal, language of birds
Fire the rocket, your chemistry set
Holding on tight while winning a bet
Winter is never...

The eye of the wheel is fixed on you
Your war is fought out and chewed
Draw the curtains hear her sing
You know the song has wings
Winter is never...

I heard this song the first time on the day I got the news that someone I knew froze to death in a winter expedition in Kamchatka. Now I think of that person every time I hear this song.

Agreed! Could barely tell where they meshed. Kudos indeed!!

For a couple of seconds I thought it was going to be Groove Armada. Oh well, I suppose this is all right.

How about some Spoon so I don't have to slurp my soup.

hot soup?



 

Newman from Seinfeld, chortling in front of window with words "Hot Soup"
But slurping hot soup out on the street like so much liquid crack is perfectly acceptable.

Passengers, aka U2 and Brian Eno. Just a thought, not a complaint.

It be nice to hear Neverland once in a while. 

 
Yes Bill: MARILLION!
Play Marillion please!

Had to go buy this the other day. RP has often led me to things I "must have." THANKS!

Marillion, huh? I guess so...I just keep hearing Freddie Mercury....not sure why...I wish the voices in my head would whisper...

Marillion meets Muse is what I'm hearing. I wish RP played Marillion. :(

Quite Likable!

Am I the only one who hears Thom York here?
 
My first association was Freddy Mercury, in his latter days.
But yes, there is some resemblance to Thom York, and the music fits.

The song is not nearly as good as either of them, though, but it sounds promising.
I vehemently disagree with cold soup as a concept, but this is pretty good. One of those songs I'd probably never buy, but which I'm happy to rate 8.
Still has sounds like a bit of Marillion post Fish to me..  But I like it..

With dogging being such a popular pastime these days, if you go down to the woods tonight you're sure of a big surprise :o)

cold tomato soup...
great.
Winter is never... a good time for gazpacho.
After a couple of times listening to it, I got to appreciate this a lot more! 6 -> 8

Gazapacho? Seriously? Someone thought that would make a great band name? What's next — Chicken Noodle?

That is disgusting, but at least you admit it.  Once you get by your irrational dislike of a song because the singer sounds a little bit like another brilliant singer you don't like, I think you'll find this is actually a pretty strong tune.

Ianmoff,

I agree with you. At first I thought it was Steve Hogarth on vocals. Still miss the early Marillion days with Fish however. His 13th Star CD has some good stuff as well. But I like these guys..


Very cool... and tasty!

This one came up yesterday morning as I was running.  The tempo matches my stride perfectly.  I love when that happens.  I get a feeling of running through the woods on a cool night — with nothing but moonlight.

add Madrugada to that list.
This is so like modern day Marillion. I thought it was. Probably no surprises if you look at the bands website and influences ;-)

This song's really growing on me, truly wintry and spare, and in that sense very Scandinavian :)
LOVE the piano in this one.....what a wonderful group that I've never heard of, too. Thanks RP.
Winter is Never? Wrong! Unless you live near the equator

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Sorry, but i thought that was really hilarious.... HAHA

As for this song, wow, REALLY nice....

love it! {#Music}
Just came back from their yesterday's gig in Cracow... I was completely blown away! The violinist and the guitarist did the best job {#Smile} I bought a DVD and of course got it, the ticket and the poster signed. {#Bounce}
WOW..I liked that, brought floods of thought

Only 6 days left till I see them live! Yay! 

Now please excuse me while I look for my lost tickets.

I wouldn't mind betting they are named after the Marillion track Gazpacho - they sound very similar to current day Marillion as well.

No more Easter, Hooks In You, Script, Fugazi, Garden Party, Market Square Heroes, Grendel, Incommunicado, Sugar Mice . . .

Oh well

Kinda sounds like Muse lite. ....if you tilt your head a little and close one eye. I think it's the arpeggio piano riff.

Waiter, there's a fly in my Gazpacho...

grover 

Nice song ... if the guy would stop singing. He sings terribly off-key.


I liked this—-the guy(?) sometimes sounded like Patti Smith!
Another great Norwegian band.
Yummmmm.  Gazpacho.

I certainly prefer this song to cold tomato soup :o)
I like the atmospheric melancholy of this piece very much!
Nice... a good 7.
