The first is “Blood And Water,” which has a strangely pleasant electronic sound to start, then soon kicks in. When the vocals begin, there is an otherworldly folk vibe to them, which is wonderful. “My heart’s made of blood and water/My bones are of sticks and of stones.” And check out these lines: “From you, I’ve learned how love’s meant to be/I’m spoken and broken and free.” Then, more than halfway through, there is a pretty vocal section, before the song goes into a more progressive rock direction led by guitar. The second track is titled “Blood And Water Revisited,” and this version begins on piano, which is the driving instrumental throughout the track. Both versions are good, but I think I actually prefer this second one, which has a glorious classical vibe.
Blood And Water is scheduled to be released on both vinyl and CD on August 8, 2019.
