about

« Lowland » depicts the dark place we always go to when we are distressed; it’s the place where all our monsters live in, and it’s described like this: « the sun never rises », « drifted eyes in fear », « scary palms shaking »

« In the song, I feel I’m going back to that dark place, but this time you’ll accompany me to get me out of there, just like Orpheus going to get Eurydice from death, except here the roles are reversed because Fanny is the one who is pulling me out from inside » that’s how Vincent Jacob (lead singer) describes the lyrics. This song has a deep meaning for him and it was his way to describe his real anxieties and fears.

The edgy, intense, and melodic music is widely influenced by the same artist that influenced the name of the band: Jeff Buckley. Still, don’t get it wrong, with its detuned guitars, haunting vocals and thumping rhythm section, Yard Of Blondes is the new alternative rock from the land of grunge.

lyrics

LOWLAND

I got a one-way ticket going back to Lowland
Keep me awake before I fall into the quicksand
Every plane I take
Every train I ride
Finally, always lead me to that same old place

You take my hand
Sing a lullaby
Light the fireflies
Light the fireflies

I’m on my very own land I know every corner
I know exactly where is hiding the coroner
The tiger is here
Beside the lake of tears
I know exactly though the sun never rises

You take my hand
Sing a lullaby
Light the fireflies
Light the fireflies

Drifting eyes in fear
Scary palms shaking

All around

You take my hand
Sing a lullaby
Light the fireflies
Light the fire
You make me feel alive
Pull me out from inside
Your eyes are like a lighthouse
As you feed the moon I cry
