about

AGES, the third release from White Violet, is a record of unprecedented pacing. Bandmates Nate Nelson (songwriter, instrumentalist, producer) and Brad Morgan (instrumentalist, songwriter) plan to release tracks in five digital volumes, two tracks at a time, over the course of one album cycle. At the end, the album will be released on vinyl in its entirety. Each volume is a parcel to unpack and take in, a piece of the gradually unfolding puzzle. Each experience is like a bright correspondence with a stranger who, at the end of which, you meet to hear them speak their heart in full. The album will be written over the course of the cycle–amping emotional proximity to the material onstage–giving AGES an authentic narrative. In an age where we have access to endless streaming, sculpting a record into multiple releases is not only strategic and pioneering, but also an invitation to have a conversation; letting the listener join the band in a slow burn experience.

Track Name: Time
Take my backbone
Find another skill to hone
You can see through every hole in my lines

I want to be that boulder
Sit completely still
To your ears you’d swear that I was hurt

Sit still sister
Let a seed lay roots
Where I can see you in every hole in your time

You can see through mountains
From coast to coast
To your eyes you’d swear that they are close

I keep doing this for show
You won’t see me blink
I’ll say you should have known

Now I’ve finally slept
Now that I’m finally home
Where I can sit in every hole in my time

I keep doing this for show
You won’t see me blink
I’ll say you should have known

Now I’ve finally slept
Now that I’m finally home
Where I can see you in every hole in my time
Track Name: Both Of Our Views
Felt my tailspin subside with the moon
Then I laid down facing up, wait for the truth

Saw the hair split down both of our views
Commandeering all of the air left in the room

All the weight, all the weight
Of all the weight

I was standing in all the wrong groups
Sharply folding onto a desk in a strange guest room

Half imaged the state of the mood
Reinventing inspiring quotes, a calm down ruse

While the meaning takes a seat
The words keep shifting out of sequence
