about

“The first showing from Carpet of Horses is ambient and eerie, haunting and captivating all at the same time…its uniqueness grips you and doesn’t let go…an excellent first effort." – Grayowl Point

“The four songs…move slowly but with purpose. Swells and surges add significance to the gentle post-folk, ambient numbers. Open space lets chords echo and help define [the] heavy emotion but delicate harmonies soften the impact.” – Herohill

“…rustic sounds are balanced by a sense of chilling etherealism…its expansive production hints at an ambition which stretches beyond the indie folk margins." – Leonard’s Lair

Track Name: Take Hold
take hold!
Track Name: Night Song
tired horses run
towards a light not bright anymore
they lay down alone
like stones
with bones impossibly hard to break
and i know that they're cold
but they keep on keeping on
Track Name: Fall Song
dear, can you see?
there's dirt on the street
still, i'm humming as i march among the dead
tall trees over my head
cold feet that don't walk fast

and i go
farther from home

i take off my coat
i breathe through my nose
i hope that some rain is gonna come
to rest on my tongue
and wash what i've done off of me

so i go and i go
farther from home
Track Name: Train Tracks
stolid master
stain disaster on everything now
we're not allowed to say it's not true

all the actors, bold and backwards
breaking in two
breaking for you

claims on the heart keep you apart from anything new
shapes in the dark driving you far from everything true

what are you gonna do?
