Be Gentle 04:04
the very steps so bright and bending simple sparrow help me find where i’ve been and where we did the planting i sing and you dive for the first time we begin (again) for the first time we begin there was no gold in our darkness no night to soothe our wounds our hearts as dark as the soil swollen like balloons a hole in me like a hollow tree down right hidden were the vines a ray seeping through a canopy imparting hunger for incline For the first time we begin (again) For the first time we begin
2.
we left early from grade school they drove us up the mountain so we could play in the leaves I wore purple, you a jean coat we were a lifeboat, just you and me dad would play guitar, you would write all the words I would dance and play my red tambourine we would have races down Windell we would like candles on christmas eve bury your army men in the sand box snails in a cardboard box, near the tv dad would play guitar, you would write all the words I would dance and play my red tambourine we placed pennies on the railroad tracks stronger kinship, brother i want you back dad would play guitar, you would write all the words I would dance and play my red tambourine

Not By Sight 02:43
waiting for the sun to go down down down for the day and the ache to hit the ground there’s beauty in pain an ugliness to grey both travel together crash a train into your face like a kick to the gut robs your breath leaving distaste without consent without knowledge half the time eating at my solace momma you let me cry and sleep with that strangling monkey i was sure he would kill me grab my neck and squeeze it tight you removed, restored and taught me walk by faith and not by sight
4.
i intend to tend our ground and let your arms grow around me the tallest pine, the meekest dove the driving heart, the mended glove the days turn to years the years break the bow but it doesn’t matter anyhow withstand the diamonds that cut our feet the folds we’ll iron in our sleep the gentle giant, the sharpened sword the ocean map, the healing word the days turn to years the years break the bow but it doesn’t matter anyhow
5.
Shaky Pants 04:33
the earth on which i travel the salt that is my name the throwing on my fists a tenor’s sweet refrain left handed compliments keep me up at night the light pressing against us seems to keep no time life will rattle your bones and shake your limbs but you don’t have to shake alone you wonder like you’re lost as you hang the moon spring chicken in a graveyard dancing to a tune life will rattle your bones and shake your limbs but you don’t have to shake alone

about

HAVING SPENT DECADES IN GROUPS SPANNING GENRES, BROOKLYN QUINTET LA PECHE HAVE ASSEMBLED TO BECOME YOUR NEW FAVORITE BAND WITH THEIR UPCOMING EP BRIGHT AND BENDING. THEIR FIRST PROJECT IN A FEW YEARS, THE FOLKGAZERS ARE READY FOR THEIR RE-INTRODUCTION WITH A LITTLE MORE WISDOM UP THEIR SLEEVES. WITH INFECTIOUS AND GRITTY GUITAR RIFFS AND THE SILKY SMOOTH YET HAUNTING VOCALS OF FRONTWOMAN KRISTA HOLLY, BRIGHT AND BENDING IS THE PERFECT SOUNDTRACK TO STAY WARM WITH AS WINTER APPROACHES IN THE CITY.

WITH A HINT OF 90S GRIT AND DRIVING BEATS, LA PECHE STRETCH THEIR LEGS ON BRIGHT AND BENDING WITH IMPOSSIBLY CATCHY LICKS AND INTRIGUING TONES. FROM THE PHASED-OUT FIRST NOTES OF “BE GENTLE,” TO THE ROCKING “DOESN’T MATTER,” WHICH IS AT ITS CORE THE SWEETEST LOVE SONG, IT IS CLEAR THAT THE GROUP ARE MORE THAN YOUR AVERAGE INDIE BAND. THEN THERE’S “RED TAMBOURINE,” TELLING THE TALE OF BROTHER AND SISTER GROWING UP AND GROWING APART.

AFTER A BRIEF SPELL AWAY FROM MUSIC, KRISTA HOLLY PICKED UP WRITING AGAIN DRAWING INSPIRATION FROM BOTH PAST AND PRESENT. WITH HER HUSBAND, AND BASSIST, DAVE DIEM, SHE BEGAN REWORKING OLD SONGS AND BEFORE LONG, WAS COMPOSING NEW TUNES. SOON, THERE WAS A DESIRE TO PERFORM AND SHARE SOME MUSIC. THE TWO ENLISTED THE TALENTS OF A FEW GOOD FRIENDS AND MUSICIANS. STOKED, LA PÊCHE NOW INCLUDES THE INTRICATE AND THOUGHTFUL GUITAR SLAYING OF DREW DEMAIO, THE HAUNTING VOICE OF KEIKO ICHINOSE TO WEAVE WITH KRISTA’S PROVOCATIVE MELODIES, AND THE CREATIVE RHYTHMS OF JEFFERSON GENSTERBLUM.
