about

Porchlight Parade Adelaide, Australia

Porchlight Parade are Adelaide-based folk trio Kate Henderson, Tom Kalleske and Pearl Tassell.

From funk-metal to pirate-rock to acoustic alt-folk, the three have been around the traps, with Henderson picking up a Triple J Unearthed win in her late teens and a featured artist slot a decade later.

Is it possible to be unearthed-reburied-unearthed-reburied and unearthed again?

Track Name: Sidesleeper
Sidesleeper
Eyes forward
Back turned
Elbows pointing down

Under Sunday shadow
Torso twisted
Knees up mother brown

And in the daylight
You've a different story
But sidesleeper
Tonight the vultures you know are circling

Oh sidesleeper when will they find out what evades you?
All of the flammable things that dare to burn you
And in the daylight you've a grand demeanour
But sidesleeper
Tonight the vultures you know are circling

Sidesleeper you can't be sure
Head tucked in close chest to jaw
And so umbilically safe in that familiar place

Sidesleeper right on the edge
Upon the evening's ledge
And still now you can't be sure
Head tucked in close chest to jaw

Track Name: Grey Day
Which way are you inclined to fall?
Over yourself or back in to the fire?
Once were a terrorist of sorts
Now it seems there are no exit points

Mighty war
Almighty war
It's a grey day
It's a grey, grey day

Kissed by your own poison lips
The rope is getting wrapped around your neck
Once victoriously bold
Set upon to rage in silent halls

Mighty war
Almighty war
It's a grey day
It's a grey day

Almighty war
Oh bloody war
It's a grey day
It's a grey, grey day.

Track Name: Dead Damp
Rhythm finds her by the sea shore
By the sea shore
By the sea shore

Pen to paper taking up time
Taking up time
Taking up time

Syllables swim under her skin
Under her skin
Under her skin

Pen to paper taking up time
Taking up time
Taking up time, time, time

Out in the middle of the dead damp
Dressed in her watery clothes
Caught in the kick of a chorus line
That nobody knows, nobody knows
Nobody knows

Eastern sun and northern wind crawling forth up fingers
Calling out to let them in, still the dead damp lingers
Down amongst a poet's thieves clutching at the straws
Coming to the surface clean upon loose leaf floors

Out in the middle of the dead damp
Dressed in her watery clothes
Caught in the kick of a chorus line
That nobody knows, nobody knows

Out in the middle of the dead damp
Dressed in her watery clothes
Caught in the kick of a chorus line
That nobody knows, nobody knows
Nobody knows.
