Apollo Demo



A demo of one of our new tracks in the works, Apollo, featuring Stevyn Llewellyn and Cati James, 2015.

Lyrics .:.
Hey Man Whats the rush no need to try to make me understand
because I’ll do what I can to get out of this land and find a new one to settle in.
No traffic, no cracks in the pavement
Just pure nature

Breathe in take a seat, sit down at the table pour the wine and break bread with the angels
Turn your thoughts to the celestial

I’ve got two feet they’re going to help me climb
I stand on hills they’re old as time
You can take your time but we’ll be fine
Into the void watch the stars fly by

Faster than an arrow
Flying with Apollo
Quicker than a sparrow
I feel it in my marrow
Faster than an arrow
Flying with Apollo
Quicker than a sparrow
I feel it in my marrow

We’re flying with Apollo

Album Update 3 : Embrace

Rubymink-Embrace-2

 

Made some good progress today on a new track in the works tentatively titled, “Embrace”.  Just ironing out some vocals and some final touches. It’s a moody, expansive piece that has swirling guitars and a dreamy ambience. This is one of our softer tracks, to lull you into faraway places. We are excited to share this track with you in the coming weeks.

Album Update

track-listing-rubymink

Preparation for our next album began while our debut was released in August of this year. We have fleshed out about six songs so far, and three of them are nearly there, instrumentation – wise. Lyrically, they are coming together, and one called “All I Am” is pretty solid. The tone of that track is hopeful and unapologetic, while the other two “Lucidity” and “Heaven Knows” are brooding and atmospheric. I’m not sure if these will be on the album or not, as they are softer and more melancholic than the others. Making music is a process, it can be truly enlightening and inspiring, and at the same time, terribly frustrating. It comes down to being able to carve away time to let it become something special.  And then it becomes a matter of it being heard.

I’m pleased with one song, and the Instrumentation for “Apollo” is nearly done, it needs some tightening up and solid vocals to give it the life it needs. It is a hard rocking number, good highway music. That being said, We’ve uploaded it below for you to have a special preview of the track. If you are out there reading this, let us know what you think.

 

Right As Rain


Wheels up take flight got to get my feet off the ground
Anywhere I go  – well, up is better than down

I can’t quite explain
I’m higher than a plane
I’m right as right as rain
I don’t feel no pain

Wheels up take flight got to get my feet off the ground
Anywhere I go –  well, up is better than down

I can’t quite explain
I’m higher than a plane
I’m right as right as rain
I don’t feel no pain
right as right as rain
I don’t feel no pain
right as right as rain
I don’t feel no pain

Fill My Shoes


Pack my bags and fill my shoes
I’ve got nothing else to lose
feel like I’m torn apart
feel like I’m torn in two
When you got nothing but a bruise
on the heels of your feet

I’ll show myself out
I said hey man what’s your plan wont you show me the way out?
hey man what’s the plan won’t you show me the way out?
I’ll be on my way

Pack my bags and fill my shoes
I’ve got nothing else to lose
feel like I’m torn apart
feel like I’m torn in two
When you got nothing but a bruise

Pack my bags and fill my shoes
I got nothing else to lose
feel like I’m torn apart
I got nothing else to lose

My Cup


Mouth of the river be my cup
wind on the sea be my wings
don’t destroy the things you love
open your heart to the things above
sun overhead be my guide
sky so high be my shelter

Time is no crime
Time is no crime

Mouth of the river be my cup
wind on the sea be my wings
don’t destroy the things you love
open your heart to the things above
sun overhead be my guide
sky so high be my shelter

Time is no crime
Time is no crime

It’s True


It’s true
the sound of the river
It’s blue
the sound of the sea
It’s you
made in the stars for me
It’s true
the wind in the trees

On a clear day you can see
colors indefinitely
There is nothing that is more real
than nature makes you feel

It’s true
the sound of the river
It’s blue
the sound of the sea
It’s you
made in the stars for me
It’s true
the wind in the trees

On a clear day you can see
colors indefinitely
There is nothing that is more real
than nature makes you feel

Sirens


Sing to me sirens on the sea
sing to me sirens on the sea
sing to me sirens on the sea
sing to me

Impossible beauty
pulls me in the swell
forever with you I dwell
in the wine dark sea
just like Ulysses

Waves they pull me
drowning my army
drowning my glory
Impossible beauty
pulls me in the swell
forever with you I dwell
In the wine dark sea
Just like Ulysses

Sirens on the sea
sirens on the sea
sirens on the sea
sing to me
softly
sing to me

Sirens on the sea
sing to me
sirens on the sea
sing to me
sirens on the sea
sing to me
softly

Light Speed


My girl’s got a green thumb
and I’ve got a black toe
from climbing a mountain
to see the fields below

We’re going light speed
we’ve got the top down
we’re going to outer space
with the whole human race
we’re going light speed
we’ve got a reason
for you to believe in

My girl’s got a green thumb
and I’ve got a black toe
from climbing a mountain
to see the buffalo

Is that stone in your hand,
is it bigger than the man?
Is that stone in your hand,
is it bigger than the man?

My girl’s got a green thumb
and I’ve got a black toe
from climbing a mountain
to see the buffalo

We’re going light speed
we’ve got the top down
we’re going to outer space
with the whole human race
we’re going light speed

Is that stone in your hand,
is it bigger than the man?
I ask you

Rain Cloud Comes


I can’t remember
what I’m trying to forget
indelible memory
is the ink that’s written on me
all I have is history
and the gilded summer sword
worn by a hero
blood on the armor
a warrior or a farmer
he saw an Eagle
eating a serpent
call it a sign
call it what you want
Armies go to war
change the face of the world

Rain cloud comes Thunderstorm
Rain cloud comes Thunderstorm
Rain cloud comes Thunderstorm
Rain cloud comes Thunderstorm

I can’t remember
what I’m trying to forget
indelible memory
is the ink that’s written on me
all I have is history
and the gilded summer sword
worn by a hero
blood on the armor
a warrior or a farmer
he saw an Eagle
eating a serpent
call it a sign
call it what you want
armies go to war
change the face of the world

Rain cloud comes Thunderstorm

White Dragon coming down the mountainside
Storm clouds all around there’s no place to hide

Lightning coming down

Heavy is the head that wears the crown
Heavy is the head that wears the crown
Heavy is the head that wears the crown
