“The Sound of Winter” by Bush – The Song of the Week for 9/26/2011


“The Sound of Winter” by Bush is the first single from the new album The Sea of Memories, released September 13, 2011

Genre: Alternative RockPost-Grunge

I caught this video for this new Bush song somewhere on the web a couple weeks ago. It has lingered in my head so I thought I would make it the Song of the Week this week.

Bush has announced a tour with Chevelle and Filter. Although this is only a partial reunion of the band, it looks like they are back to make some noise a la the early 90’s.

“Medusa smiles, Judas lips
Open arms and finger tips
Love bites and recompense
I’ll be with you until the end
Let’s walk through the fire together
Disappear in the golden sands”

And eating us alive,
Don’t you ever wonder how we survived?
Well now that you’re gone, the world is ours”
