about

Red Clay River Richmond, Virginia

Typically moving somewhere in the vein of "Gothic Americana," Red Clay River evokes a sense of dark euphoria within their songs.

The band's core members–Dan Bivins and Aaron Parker–have been evolving their sound for over 10 years now with RCR and continue to push their sonic boundaries and not make the same record twice.

Track Name: Snake Oil
I shiver and I bellow, tangle and rust
I break my own will to peer inside your dust
see me come running with memory in hand
I fear no man, no god damn

Shake
I'm crossing your body like a sacred map

Pouring sweat on the engines of ancient rituals
nighttimes and the dead rhymes are breaking you down
lightning rods and the willows keep you breathing in
Track Name: Pennies
Brought around by the shadows
carrying dead dreams by the neck
significant dawn to hold and hold
on to pennies in your eyes

We're tiny, forgotten satellites
We're all just breaking down
Track Name: Buried Golden
Dust settles on your bones
tortured hands shape the light
days are sutured and found
blistered gods buried golden
believe that all is forgotten
in the sagging weight of forever

Break down with me
Won't you break down with me

Whistle shape, spit lies
chewing on growing mouths
nettle blanket, new rust
build what is forgotten
you look like war
with buried dreams and foxhole eyes
advancing hands like enemies
make peace with all violence

Break down with me
Won't you break down with me
Track Name: Slow Burn
Our unholy lives
are filled with these strange addictions
Failed unruly blood
is writing restless fictions
Tangle with future enemies
color cold smiles
Hiding blank mirrors
behind forgotten dreams
I'm casting glances
at angry black seas

It's a slow burn
and this is how I end
Track Name: Puerto Rican Ghosts
There's bare feet at the back door
Let me carry you past the shakes
Baby got black reason now
Like a buried revolver
Take it to the witch doctor
Hide it under all your tears
Lay still, breathe deep, recognize animal

Remember the animals
Remember all your dreams
Remember the sediment
They're laughing at you now
Track Name: Prairie Weather
You make sense like angry water
And you make love like prairie weather
Surround me for a while, Virginia Creeper
You're smiling like a shiny knife,
sanctified by a rainy day
I'm begging for thunder to split me
I drop into the sinkhole breathing
Knock out the daylight

Spider wings hang on your dream
Lost your eye in the beggar's seam
Don't call it quits out on the line
Track Name: Always Lines
Lay my head on a railroad bed
and I will wake up alive and dead
Track Name: Shadow Penny
Brought around by the shadows
Carrying dead dreams by the neck
Significant dawn to hold and hold
On to pennies in your eyes

We're tiny forgotten satellites
We're all just breaking down
