Saints Alive

from by Hope and Social

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    A lovely CD with a bear on it presented inside a bespoke card wallet, designed inside the House of Hope and paid for with the tears of folkie singers. Go on, you'll treasure it for days.

    As usual it's pay what you want or pay what you think it's worth...the minimum price of £1.60 literally only covers the cost of the physical production of the CD and you get a link to the download with your receipt so you can download and listen straight away! We want people to have this album, to enjoy it and to share it around but obviously we're also trying to make ends meet. So if you're not so flush at the moment just pay the £1.60...or just download the digital version below for whatever you want to pay. Even free - we don't even ask for your email address.

    If you feel moved to maybe float us a bit more then as ever, we do very much appreciate it. It's a fairly simple equation... your money makes this music.

    Includes unlimited streaming of All Our Dancing Days via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

lyrics

Standing in the cool light of a summer's haze
Standing in the deluge of the summer rain
Well I don't why I don't know why we don't just go away

Dry your socks out then dry your eyes
Scrape that mud from your inner thigh
There's a certain kind of sickness makes us stay where the rain is

We could go where we want to go
We could do what we want to do
We could be what we want to be
Saints alive, Saints alive

You cannot tell me that you'd feel this alive
If the sun shone down for 365 days of every year
Oh Saint Assisi keep your hands from here

Oh but I know that this brings you down
It's hard to smile when you're half drowned
Oh but I know that this brings you down
But if you swim with me, I guess we'll see

We could go where we want to go
We could do what we want to do
We could be what we want to be
Saints alive, Saints alive

We could go where we want to go
We could do what we want to do
We could be what we want to be
Saints alive, Saints alive

about

Hope and Social Leeds

In the tradition of the travelling bands, we guess we’re a bit like a Yorkshire E-Street Band...meets Arcade Fire...meets The Faces…meets Dexys Midnight Runners…meets Prefab Sprout…at a party...in an argument about who gets to have sex with David Bowie. We're not as good at describing ourselves as others are, so...

"a big sound from this impressive outfit...inspired, anthemic, great" - Q magazine
