about

Sir Greendown Charleston, South Carolina

Childhood friends Andrae Raffield and Harper Marchman-Jones formed a songwriting partnership in 2010 after discovering common themes and aesthetics in material each had composed previously while working with other groups.

The project soon attracted the attention of cellist/bassist Diego Villena and percussionist Wes Schneider. The quartet dubbed themselves Sir Greendown.

Track Name: Spread the Plague
Lyrics:

Mix me up with sleight-of-hand.
Spread the plague across the land.
Curse me as I stumble through your howling hall.
Holy waters, once thought pure
Are antidotes that hold no cure,
But poison arrows inking veins across the pall.

O, Leticia, I don't feel right.
I will hunger through the night.
Oh, no.
You've cracked my candy.

I see you in the looking glass,
And in your aspect, a different cast;
A crippled ideology I can't accept.
Beyond that surface, you're so kind:
Sound of body, and of mind.
But you spread the plague, and you don't care who you infect.

O, Leticia, I don't feel right.
I will hunger through the night.
Oh, no.
You've cracked my candy.
Your deftness with the needle is so fine.
You turned me on and left me blind,
And i will not forget that slight.
Track Name: Black Bark
Light
Pierces
The black
Bark
Of
Wood.
Growing.
Changing.
Too fast.

Woods
Grow
About
My
Cold
Feet.
Growing.
Changing.
Too fast.

I won't bend.
