There's a fire in the study, Whisper in the dark
Colors burning brighter, hunger for the spark
Shadow thrown from light unknown, calling on the hearts
To challenge the alive and summon the asleep
And the sun sinks over the big smoke
The sky explodes on the shuttering lake

There's a new wild feeling dancing in the air
There's a new wild everywhere
There's a new wild feeling dancing in the air
There's a new wild everywhere

Rocks jump and jitter, bush surface roots
Dream up clay in water, simmer up the soots
Weather breaks, spirit shakes
Somethings switches on
Running independent, rushing out men gone.
And the sun sinks over the big smoke
The sky explodes on the shuttering lake

There's a new wild feeling dancing in the air
There's a new wild everywhere
There's a new wild feeling dancing in the air
There's a new wild everywhere

Fly up to the heavens, anchored in the clouds
Fly beyond the night, love the blooming sounds
Maize and cries, neon lights pushing and light
Taking flight to raven heights to turn on and shine
And the sun sinks over the big smoke
The sky explodes on the shuttering lake

There's a new wild feeling dancing in the air
There's a new wild everywhere
There's a new wild feeling dancing in the air
There's a new wild everywhere

I didn't notice any commentary here that was especially negative.  It is a good tune, but it doesn't remind me of Bob Welch's material very much.

 
Listen closer and read the first few comments............
The guitar sound is very similar to that of Donna the Buffalo, especially on the extended jam that RP plays at times.

Which lake?
 
I'd guess either Lake Erie on Lake Ontario.
reminds me a bit of ween, lazy & sloppy. in a good way.
Which lake?
Just saw these guys in a 160 year old church - Chalmers in Kingston - great live band.

Wow!!  So many negative comments about this song.......I think it has a solid melody and sounds great!! 

The guitars are excellent, and tell me this doesn't remind you of early 1970's Fleetwood Mac with the late Bob Welch - {#Clap}

First listen - liking the new release from a great Canadian band.  I like the production.  Sounds like it was recorded right off the studio floor.  Nice to hear some Canadian references in the lyrics as well.

Why does the HD Slideshow always show pictures of those nasty lampreys every time a Great Lake Swimmers song comes on?
I know they're Great Lake swimmers but so are other assorted fishy's.
 
Ewww!!!  And it's got creepy eyes!
I like their more acoustic-y songs better; the guitar solo was good.

A grower, not a shower.
Agreed, more subdued. 
First listen, but something is vastly different. Their sound has been flattened and turned bland. Did they change producers or lose a band member?
