My kindred sat up beside me
I’m laid out on a stone platter
On an altar gradually rising
Atop a coil of gears and clockwork

The sound of howling laughter
The crumbling granite cogs lock shut

Awoke in a mechanical nest
Aware that we’ll be feasted upon
Sensing an almighty power above
Fear does not allow us to look up

One terrified glance then i can look no more
I see a golden beak and a feathered fleece

Accepting death beneath the monolith
Gargantuan creature fills the sky
Then the platter tilts and off it we slide
My brother and I in two separate pipes

It seems we’ve been granted safety for now
We land in the grass outside the Incan hell

The nose, it was the nose
The nose, It was the nose
The two circles, the two circles
The two circles, the two circles

The two circled image is what i’m left with
Two stone entrances into which we slid

Hailing from South London, Dignan Porch began as the lo-fi bedroom pop musings of Joseph Walsh and soon became a full band. Loaded with psychedelic hooks, melancholia and skewed takes on everyday life, their music is both effortlessly melodic and oddly haunting.
