Serpentine has released two singles on Autumn Records: Black Diamond and Real.
Their forthcoming album features ten tracks:
Can you Feel It?
Richly textured and hypnotic, Serpentine’s sound is built around rhythmic grooves bending into the realm of psychedelic rock.
Songs like Hemlock and Citrine evoke a sense of otherworld-ness:
“Sapphire rules the darkness from this moonlit stage. Throwing kisses, casting wishes, wish upon a star. Citrine wakes the sun king – dance of the morning light. Shadows bow to the golden ring, as darkness takes flight…”
Kathleen and Martin previously performed and recorded with the Colorado-based band, The Innocence featuring Billy Jones on guitar and vocals, Mark Foerster on bass, and James Woodward on lead guitar.
Joseph Hutchinson wrote this about the band in Scene Magazine:
“Walking into the Inlet Bay, I was stopped dead by a five member band headed by a slim blonde thumping a bright red, 3 foot conga. For a second I thought I’d walked into a San Francisco coffee house from 1966. It turned out to be the debut of a the new local band, the Innocence, and I predict all fans of the Colorado Sound will be as happy with their earth-loving, almost Donovan-esque attitude as I was.”
Recordings by the Innocence:
If You Were Free
Your Freedom is Sacred
As a child of the sixties, I was imprinted by that era – or that era was imprinted upon me.
A time that felt magical: The playfulness. The mysticism. The earthy sensuality and love vibes. The psychedelia. And especially the MUSIC.
The Beatles, The Stones, Zeppelin, Donovan, Steppenwolf…
My songwriting is an attempt to capture/channel/convey that experience. To create songs that groove and have a pulse, songs that breathe, songs that invite you the listener to step into another era, and to step to the edge. I will be there waiting for you.
The creative process captures something within one’s self that is then experienced by another, like the light transmitted from a distant star. My wish is that these songs might shine within you and intensify your own light; that they might inspire the creativity within you.
May you be bathed in light,
“We live our lives of desperation,
Waiting at the station.
I’ll see you at the end of time.
Stone flowers never die,
They never grow, they’re frozen in time.
I know they’re out somewhere;
I know you’re out there too
With stone flowers around you.”
“The floor is pulsing, my hair drips onto your face.
You sound sleeping, sound is sweeping through this space.
As twilight’s fading, we lie waiting in the night;
Bathed in love, and now we’re bathed in shining light.
Silver moon, diamond star – you light up my heart.”
