about

This record is about losing something precious.
I wrote these songs about it between Winter 2014-2015.
Recorded in a converted Monastery in Buffalo, NY
I hope you found something

"Neon hued pop with lush soundscapes and bright vocals. The brilliant Canadian art-pop group The Nursery return with a gorgeous new collection of tasty tunes" - Diamond Deposits

"With an anthemic and boisterous sound, Toronto’s The Nursery is well on the path to being Canada’s next great indie-pop band. Digital Ashes is fantastic indie pop that is simultaneously dark, hypnotic, and euphoric" - The Revue

"Big and glossy, 3D-modeled, rose quartz and serene-colored pop music" - Chart Attack

Track Name: Digital Ashes
Digital ashes
Remind me of what I used to know
Dust on our lashes
What I can't see is what I own
I found an island
Goodbye to everything i've ever known
This modern world beneath my feet
Red wind it burns each person I meet
In the world that i'm tethered to

Now that I can't seem to remember
All these memories of digital ashes
When I have seen it all crumble
All that's left of me are digital ashes

I found an island
tiptoed and walked through the primrose
Each step i've taken
Leads me into the wilderness unknown
A wiccan child with her I roam
This dirt I taste it builds my home
That's I've grown so tethered to

Now that I can't seem to remember
All these memories of digital ashes
When I have seen it all crumble
All that's left of me are digital ashes

My visions it seems
Stranger than dreams
A mechanical phoenix burns
They scream "just breathe"
Track Name: She Speaks the Wave
Sky's gone dark your voice i'm hearing
This is the day, this is the day
Every word comes crashing over
When she speaks the wave, she speaks the wave
Lighthouse beams across the water
No time to be brave, time to be brave
Hold my breath now as you whisper
She speaks the wave, she speaks the wave

I remember the times we stared into
Eyes of strangers and learned the truth
I wish I had the power of the moon
To curve these tides and become immune

Chasing you just like a shadow
That's running away, running away
Seafoam dreams fade into twilight
When she speaks the wave, she speaks the wave
Fireflies illuminating
An innocent crime, innocent crime
Still I listen through the heartache
All of the time, all of the time

I remember the times we stared into
Eyes of strangers and learned the truth
I wish I had the power of the moon
To curve these tides and become immune

Seafoam dreams fade into twilight
When she speaks the wave, she speaks the wave
Still I listen through the heartache
All of the time, all of the time
Track Name: Hexes + Oh's
Excuse me sir please stop activities
Get off the stage and hang up your proclivities
My head is spinning around the very sight of you
Can't stay in the spotlight it's true it's true
You say I'm wrong so make me right why don't you?
Stop all your crying about your red white and blues

I've found these games we play
Twisted like rattlesnakes
Are you?
I'm not, not innocent
You are just amusement
Like me
It's only Hexes and Oh's

I stepped right out of the womb
To walk straight into the tomb
My devotion is rosicrucial to you
Children sing in the streets
Their voices so indiscreet
Set the fire, set the fire round their feet

I've found these games we play
Twisted like rattlesnakes
Are you?
I'm not, not innocent
You are just amusement
Like me
It's only Hexes and Oh's
Track Name: Oceans of You
From the edge of the sand by crystal beach
Down in the river it's you I see
Hold my arms I feel them shaking
Hear the waves they are breaking
I don't wanna lose don't wanna lose my soul
my soul

the oceans of you
I don't know what is true
in the oceans of you
I dove into
the oceans of you

Nothing to touch, nothing to see, nothing to hold
Now that it looks, looks like you've seen
Seen a ghost
Hold my arms I feel them shaking
Hear the waves they are breaking
I will fight I will fight for my soul
my soul

the oceans of you
I don't know what is true
in the oceans of you
I dove into
the oceans of you

It's all gone quiet
It's all gone still
Wind is howling
Against my will
Each breath I'm talking
I choke on guilt
When we lovers
From another time
World was shaking
Bonded by crime
Stars are fading
So run for your life

the oceans of you
I don't know what is true
in the oceans of you
I dove into
the oceans of you
Track Name: Crystal Beach
I took a walk back just to meet you on the borderline
Where black waves roll on and on through mirrored shame
I've waited years just to see the glow flicker in your eyes
Through phosphorescent bones and familiar games
You were right
You were right

In crystal beach
New promises beyond our reach
I don't want to say goodbye
oh no not tonight
Dive in deep
Get lost and found in crystal beach
I don't want to say goodbye
Oh no not tonight

This night's not getting warmer so let's throw some sticks and stones
Follow the beat and the voices submit yourself to the drone
We're just two criminal bodies bound by a million grains
Being swept cross shores and swallowed by a neon wave
You were right
You were right

In crystal beach
New promises beyond our reach
I don't want to say goodbye
oh no not tonight
Dive in deep
Get lost and found in crystal beach
I don't want to say goodbye
Oh no not tonight

One sordid night
One violet ray
Step in the light
Come out to play
Three hundred years
Two eyes astray
One place we know

In crystal beach
New promises beyond our reach
I don't want to say goodbye
Oh no not tonight
You were right
Track Name: Xyoto's Dream
Where are we going?
I must find her I must become real

Where are we going?
Must be somewhere

Where are we going?
I must find her I must become real

Where are we going?
You will break
