It's coming Been sitting in wait for so long Here me running There's a light at the end, thought you never would come but These days when the weather's still gray You roll over and pray, everything is okay It stung, it had only begun And I'd give my good lung just to sit in the sun You can always tell when the winter's gone Everybody comes out at night You can always tell when the long winter's gone Everybody comes out, everybody comes out These days in the digital age Everybody's 2D, and it's like a TV but I see the sky start to open up wide And I'd give my good eye just to go outside You can always tell when the winter's gone Everybody comes out at night You can always tell when the long winter's gone Everybody comes out, everybody comes out And it's always the darkest just before you get to dawn And it's always the darkest just before the morning comes Winter's gone

Everyone here waits around for the weekend Everybody here's coming down for the weekend Working those gears 'til the day's never-ending Only three more 'til we get to the weekend "One of these days they'll get what they got comin' One of these days we're really gonna show 'em" Ain't it just great how it all never changes? Nothing I can do, sit and pray for the weekend It's never if not today Everything's not okay And tomorrow awaits, but we'll always have today Finally here never thought I would see it Everyone's near, rally up & let's beat it Something ain't right with the shit I was given Matthew's out back and it looks like he's tripping (Hold on, hold on, 'cause you're never gonna be alone) Something ain't right in the disco casino Internet spies in my mind on a reload World's gonna end better get to the weekend Sweet sentiment - "kill yourself for the weekend" It's never if not today Everything's not okay And tomorrow awaits, but we'll always have today Everyone here waits around for the weekend Everyone here waits around for the weekend It's never if not today Everything's not okay And tomorrow awaits, but we'll always have today (Tomorrow waits, but we'll always have today) And tomorrow awaits, but we'll always have today

This Single is only available in digital format!!!

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

“Rabbit's Moon & Doomsday” was BELLE GHOUL’s 10” white vinyl Mini-LP that Elefant Records released at the end of last year. The group - formed by Christopher Tait (ELECTRIC SIX), Jesse Paris Smith (the daughter of Patti Smith and Fred “Sonic” Smith from MC5), Matt Van, Zach Shipps and Mike Alonso - now gives us “Winter's Gone”, a new Digital Single taken from that splendid Mini-LP, that is also accompanied by an incredible video. “Winter's Gone” is a magical song that said goodbye to a winter that lasted almost five months, which Nur Casadevall has transmitted quite clearly in the video; it reflects the wintry coldness, both formally and internally, of a savage encounter between a girl and a wolf. It’s a kind of winter’s tale full of fantasy, and it was filmed in the famous Casa Gomis, also known as “La Ricarda”, and probably the best architectural example of Catalan Rationalism.

The rest of the songs included on this Digital Single were taken from the group’s show on December 30th, 2013 in Webster Hall in New York, when they opened for Patti Smith herself. “Around For The Weekend” is especially solid, effusive, euphoric; a hit that multiplies itself in its live format, with super catchy keyboard lines and a great chorus. To wrap things up, “(Out Of) The Neighborhood” reminds us of the BOO RADLEYS with its brilliant trumpets and sunny melody. They say that the live show is the definitive test for a lot of groups. Since we don’t have them on Spanish stages, these two songs will have to be proof of the fantastic sound and energy in the group’s live shows.
