about

The lead track from the group's forthcoming album Ouseburn.
Ouseburn (the single) celebrates the artistic diversity and energy of the area from which it gets its name.
Heavily allusive, the track references everything from landmarks and graffiti tags, to local bands and cultural sites.
We hope this track resonates as a fitting tribute to our creative and ever changing home.

lyrics

Beneath the bridge you will find some Yellow Creatures
crawling down Stepney Bank past its Grim features.
Further on there's a place high above the river
of water brown as local ale, the smokers shiver.

Creative energies fuelling melodies below Byker.
The changing industry burying memories of Swan Hunter.

By canal side you will find written words and spoken rhymes
floating round like the sound of guitars tuning on Lime.
Further on there's a place high above the river
of water brown as local ale, the smokers shiver.

Creative energies fuelling melodies below Byker.
The changing industry burying memories of Swan Hunter.
