Brad This track has a definite sea shanty vibe to it. The lyrics are very intelligent and tell a story which takes you on a journey. I highly recommend this two song EP from Sirens and Sailors. Favorite track: How the Bat Saved the City of Palma.

Track Name: How the Bat Saved the City of Palma
The Pirates came into the harbor at night
And the bat flew to the tower
To ring the bell for the Sailors slept
Strait through their landing at Palma.

Ding sang the bell

The old bell rebounded by the saint’s old street walls
While the solders awoke from inept dreams
The sleep of the ones who drink to forget
But the woman he loved there also did sleep.

And it was he who used to stop by her window
To watch how she brushed her golden hair
Before he’d begin his search through the dark and the narrow
Streets of the Mediterranean night

Gliding through the Mediterranean night

La vella campana ressonà pels carrers de la ciutat
Ding ding
Els soldats que dormien la son dels ineptes
La son dels qui beuen vi per oblidar
I el rap penat els va despertar
Perquè en aquella ciutat dormia la dona que ell estimava
Una dona no es per un rap penat diuen els vells
Però que sabran ells de l'amor que es sentir una bestiola
Per l'animal mes bell del món

Ell que es parava a la finestra
Per veure com es pentinava els cabells d'or
Abans d'anar a dormir
La son de l'amor
Abans que ell començara la seva recerca
Pels estrets i foscs carrers de la nit mediterrània.
