about

We The Island Birds Montreal, Québec

It all started when Julien-Pier and Ludovic were drinking beer a summer night, enjoying the fresh breeze of Montreal while playing some simplistic 3 chords progressions with crappy solos and percussions. Since then, Evain Maurice, a jazz percussionist, joined the band to add some structure to the mess they were making. Bu Evain recently left Montreal to pursue his dream of becoming a hippie. ... more

Track Name: Soldier
First day home you don't care,
Don't you dare do that to me
i hope you tell dad I'm not there
'Cause I am a damned soldier y'know

I'm a burning soldier

That's my last day home
I have to go back
My legs can't move
I have to say good bye.
Track Name: Hope
I use you
Let me use you
Let me feel you

Little Hope, let me stay with you

I use you
Let me use you
Let me feel you

Little Hope, let me stay with you
Little Hope, let me mess with you
Track Name: Hate Potion #9
I dreamt I was a god,
I dreamt I was a savior,
Believed in none,
But a man can dream.
I once looked over my shoulder,
There was no one to watch my back.

I dreamt I was old
I dreamt I had a home
This somehow felt strange
'coz I couldn't give a fuck

We could have crossed an ocean
But we settled for a river.
We decided to waits
Until the world went dry
So we could build a highway
Across the salty plane

I dreamt I was old
I dreamt I had a home
This somehow felt strange
'coz I couldn't give a fuck
Track Name: Cellophane
These days you walk
But you can't do a straight line
'cause the sun's obstructing your eyes.

Your skin is burning
And your mouth's getting dry
but there is no water around you

And there nobody on which to rely
There is a rumour
That you've been travelling
Until you've gone blind

These days you walk
But you can't do a straight line
'cause the sun's obstructing your eyes.

Your skin is burning
And your mouth's getting dry
but there is no water around you

And the birds in the sky
They are all dead

And there nobody on which to rely
There is a rumour
That you've been travelling
Until you've gone blind
Track Name: L'animal
A moin mi vé gard a toé
A moin mi té fine levé
Ton cend'la fin brilé

laiss a moin et l'animal
mi vé , mi vé
mi vé et l'aminal

mi vé, mi vé
mi vé et l'animal

Ti fille son lev do fé
Mi té gaye pi cozé
Filaos dans mon zié

Mi vé
Oh mi vé
Mi vé et l'animal x 2

ton ker la fine fané
le fé i brule
l'arzent mi té donne
dans bois mi sa crevé

mi vé
mi vé et l'animal
mi vé oh mi vé
mi vé et l'animal

Mon kér, mon kér
Mi vé et l'animal.

Here's the song's translation:

I'd like to lay my eyes on you
I just awoke
Only cinders are left from yesterday

Let me be your animal
I want to
Be your animal

Young girl with lips of ambers
I can't express myself anymore
The Filaos has its branches in my eyes

You heart is fading
As our fire consumes
All the money I am wasting on you
As I am dying in the woods
