BUY VINYL HERE: tenzenmen.bandcamp.com/album/lp


All life on Earth began innocently in the primordial, prenatal waters of creation, and so too it was that love drew its first delicate and vulnerable breath. If you have known love you will be aware of the terrible pounding and crushing pressure pushing all oxygen from your chest, leaving you gasping for air and looking to take up the nearest sharp object and carve gills into your neck. This is the spirit of the ocean calling to your most ancient protozoan ancestral memory, speaking its most primal intuition and evoking a near implacable yearning to drown yourself in the nearest body of water.

Consider this, then, the conceptual crux of the debut LP from regenerate Brisbane dandies Seahorse Divorce; 11 tracks of unfettered, unapologetic and organic affection prevailing in the face of the invariable estrangement and painful separation of life. Lacking ulterior motive or any concept of predestination, the songs are offered in homage to the other, the oft-ignored remainder after opposing and dominating forces of creative or emotional obviousness wear themselves thin.

Left, then, to wander through an ever-shifting landscape of light and darkness in search of hearth and hospice, as street urchins Seahorse Divorce simultaneously abandon and are abandoned by the bygone progenitors that first gave them life, and yet are clearly distinguished and inescapably marked by their genetic and cultural heritage.

Recorded live, Sun Distorted, punk in intent but never in form, it is unlikely that Seahorse Divorce is the proselytising litany of a new age but have stranger things not happened?

Vinyl and Cd format also available at Tenzenmen Records, shows and independent stores.

Track Name: Recurring
To stay at home I'd feel it stronger
This silence couldn't wait much longer
This residue I feel it linger
And slipping through my fingers

I'll start the story at the end
I'm a 25 year old man
Staring at a space above your eyes
I count the minutes slowly passing by

I'll start the story at the end
I'm a 25 year old man

And struggling to find a direction
And mystified by this attraction
Words cannot describe a thing tonight
Our lips are zipped up too tight

So you have to go now
I'll understand it somehow
Gonna take some time
To erase you from my mind
Track Name: Something New
This moment you know it will not last
Its already a part of the past
But there's no harm
Don't disregard
Let the seed grow inside of you
There's always time for something new
Memories far but never are few
So let's create
Let's get it made
Let's burn bright and never fade away

I've never seen you so happy, as you are you today
So glad to see you this way, hope it doesn't ever change

Sure you'll fall
Once in a while
Its unavoidable

I wanted to be the one who
Helped you get this far
Always thought that I've known you
And this is who you are

This moment you know it will not last
Its already a part of the past
But there's no harm
Don't disregard
Let the seed grow inside of you
Track Name: Rogers Street
Red eyes
The new sun shines
Its morning light racing through
My my
Clear bright blue
And how are you?

Its simple
Its complicated
Its nothing at all
Its everything

Wide eyed
Still in disguise
I'm disgusted
We can't discuss this

Its everything
Its nothing at all
Its complicated
Its simple

I had to go there
So i could come back
Now all around me
Is all inside me
Track Name: Toto
People laughing
People standing still
Someone's screaming
Someone's popping pills

No one cries
No one bats an eye
We're hypnotised
We're all caught in the tide

This one he's got a positive message
You're gonna be hearing him
And even if you listen closely
It never gets under your skin

Its the thing after the fact
Its not front to back
Its not front to back

I won't lie
I would rather die
Than preach to you from a custom made pedestal
Track Name: End Zone
Whatever gets you through the night
Whatever makes you feel alright
The clock keeps tickin
Skin is itchin
And when it ends it only just begins

Now I'm in it
Deep, deep, deep

Yesterday left promise
See no solace
Here I go again
again and again and again
Track Name: Another Cigarette
When they said you'll grow up to be a man
So enjoy youth while you can
I didn't understand

When they said nothing ever goes to plan
The shit always hits the fan
I didn't understand

Been going along trying to disprove
A point that was never made
I didn't understand

My problems are only as big as I make them
Guess I'll have another cigarette
And think about it

And I wonder will I still be thinking
Six feet under
I didn't understand

Cos when they said you'll grow up to be a man
So enjoy youth while you can
I didn't understand

I'll make my problems as big as I can make them
Then I'll have another cigarette
And think about it

It'll be better next time
I know it will

Its all a joke I'm choking on this smoke
Track Name: Summarise Proust
For those prone to remember
This may come as a surprise
The one you see before you
Cannot believe his eyes

I love now as much as then
I just don't realise it yet

Questioning the patterns
The opposite may be true

Terraforming
Its written on my face
And it terrifies me
Track Name: Saturnine
Shock and horror why'd we even bother
To leave the comfort of our nest
And try to rely on each other

All the words that echo in my head
And the ever present sense of dread

Unfamiliar streets have found their form and realised reasons
Sinking in to bitumen I greet the seasons
Non-romances
We were dreaming dancers
Oh awaken to a sweating soul left shaken

All the words that echo in my head
And the ever present sense of dread
And I'm watching everywhere I tread
And I remember everything you said

If I could I would and I really should so far so good
So far to go its not what you know its what you do

Saturnine this satellite is lost in orbit
Make a path to steer this craft away from what absorbs it
Promise to perspire in order to inspire
Ignite the fire and watch desire burn out brighter

If I could I would and I really should so far so good
So far to go, its not what you know its what you do
Track Name: Drove
Looking back on my future
There was fire in the air and water on the earth
Looking ahead to my past
Earth was air and fire water.

Through winding country roads we drove
And I closed my eyes to see the colour red
Red as it remains
Red and still the same
The blood that flows within me

Staring at the road unfolding ahead
Trees and fields of brown and green
Whoosh past relentlessly
Reflecting and refracting

Accepting the light that danced around our moving space
Seatbelts burning skin
As a song on the radio begins
She smiles and sings,
And I'm taken in
With the city whispering its promises to me,
Here's where you can be all you can be
She's gone now, she's gone now
But I'm still here, I'm still here

Still lost in skyscraper shadows
You'll find me in skyscraper shadows
