about

A four piece utilising lever harp, soft synth, recorder, textural
guitar, bass and a drum kit incorporating found objects, the group's ethereal sound is fashioned around the songs of Genevieve Fry
(Grand Salvo, Prudence Rees-Lees, Four Larks Theatre).

CHWH pursue a multi-faceted experience of music by pairing audio
with visual projections and graphic scores, often performing in
interesting contexts including arts warehouses, underground theatre sets and galleries. Their live show is a meditation on melody/assonance and its
lacuna/hiatus.

Track Name: magnolia
magnolias against a steely sky
make my heart leech from my chest and through my eyes

all my bones and flesh and blood have
fallen here for you to plunder

steel building blocks breach the skyline
echoing our cold hearts steeped in brine

all my bones and flesh and blood have
fallen here for you to plunder

skies open and release their wrath
tears mingle in a salt filled bath

all my bones and flesh and blood have
fallen here for you to plunder
Track Name: dandelions
she saw dandelions
where we reclined
that day

heaving in the sky
cumulus did cry
wishing that you would stay

all around us grew
drops of molten dew
glistening in spite of day

she saw dandelions
where we reclined
that day
Track Name: rainbows
tiny rainbows in your hair each shaft looks like a radiant prism
hair that shelters skin thats fair from harsh rays blinding vision
resting from the brightest days in valleys that defy the seasons
safe from all that haunts us now we lie without a sense of reason

oh but how we’ve tumbled from
skies so blue to shadows so long
oh and did we stumble
into monochrome

tiny rainbows in your hair each shaft is like a radiant prism
a searing fire catches me unaware it seeps in through a hazy vision
burning through my heart it’s warmth does overwhelm my senses take me on
safe from nought that haunts us now we lie without a sense of reason

oh but how we’ve tumbled from
skies so blue to shadows so long
oh and did we stumble
Track Name: carapice
do you want to come with me
from grey through taupe roads weave out to the country

where we can see the stars above

mist coats us with tiny pearls
the sky shifts pulled by golden whirlpools

there we’ll stay
a quiet and tender place

pale sun settles sooner here
it’s warmth drawn breath like to reveal vast inky skies

where we can see the stars above

frozen sills and sleepy flames
wrap around hold us tight and safe

there we’ll stay
a quiet and tender place
Track Name: nightfall
one step back
into the electric night
towards cicadas piercing chorus
and I am hushed

a latent slow-fall into florid skies
atmospheric current is pulsing
and I am hushed

slows my blood till I am frozen
slows my blood till my heart stops

one step back
into the electric night
the heaving air as dense as tar
and I am hushed

slows my blood till I am frozen
slows my blood till my heart stops

one step back
into the electric night
towards cicadas piercing chorus
and I am hushed
