about

This track didn't quite make the cut on Congratulations To Those Who Move Onwards And Excel!, but it's got some zazz, and two ripping guitar solos.

about

Formalists Toronto, Ontario

Based in Toronto, Formalists are a progressive quartet with ties to the city’s classical and jazz communities. Their music combines alt-folk, indie, and western art influences, with a dual ambition to thrill and discomfort. At once elegant, and self-indulgent, Formalists share more then just a love of supine-grape eating with the hedonists of yore. ... more

Track Name: Seamróg
I would tiptoe around the truth
Of your smile
I would float on tenterhooks
In your while
But I did swallow stones
For accord
But I did cough out thoughts
For a word

I just want to ask you
And for you just to say yes
And Maybe I would laugh too
If only you would laugh
I just want to ask you
And for you just to say yes
And Maybe I would laugh too
If only you would laugh

And I truly want to know dear,
Know just what you are
And if I am wrong
To try again
And return to the start

Because, I am a contrary child
I’m frightened of mistakes
Mais si je veux être aimé,
Alors je dois aimer

So give just what you take
If you are also afraid
But you were an end
When I began
Oh when I began
Seamróg of Bré
