dress rehearsal Toronto, Ontario

dress rehearsal plays an eclectic mix of indie alterative rock and neo-folk. the quartet from st. marys, ontario, paints a versatile musical landscape that covers the emotional spectrum between happy and sad, calm and boisterous, dark and light. their songs are soaked in genuine cathartic moments, walls of guitars, layered vocals, and a refreshing dose of honesty and charm. ... more

Track Name: river blue
wanna float on down, give it away
let the oars dip back and forth
and if i go too far, i'll find a place
far from the girl that just scratched at my world
and maybe i'll sleep where the grasses twirl
a little lull
going slow
faces of the letting go
i'm almost there and i hear
voices as i'm drawing near
the river blue, you're everything i've dreamt of
your pace is bold, you are the story that heals a soul
a slithering, old slipstream
the river blue
the colours run in through the leaves like heaven
the many moons, the clouds that pass like afternoons
and the stones and weeds beneath my feet
will hold this river true
blue river blue
Track Name: morning grey
lying awake
dressed in morning grey
and already worn out from the coming day
drive on down the road
coffee cup in tow
passed a barn of fading paint, fields of fallen snow
tossed aside
cursed to a caving mine
only keeping warm by fires of remember the time
one night to drift away to a familiar place
but when i woke up in her arms i felt to sad to stay
i guess i don't belong
the nights are dull and so long
there's so much here to lend and to mend
until then
i'll just drag my broken, tattered, lonely heart
to the bedside of a girl who'll try to carve out
her name in a pumping vein that hasn't died
