about

Daffadilly Down is a dreamy, pastoral psych-folk song about love, loss and longing. It is a taster track from my forthcoming album, due for release later this year.

Daffadilly Down features traditional Sakha vocals in the form of birdsong and seasonal wind by Saydyko Fedorova, which was sampled and performed by Oscar South using the latest digital performance tools such as Samplr by Marcos Alonso.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this track! Please contact me on www.elfinbow.com

lyrics

Daffadilly Down by Elfin Bow

Have you seen the south slope of the river?
The fish are all fighting to get home
Have you heard the sweet sound of the songbird?
As he yearns for the nest he has known
As he yearns for the nest he has known

And the flowers bow their heads
Stand silently at rest
My lover we’ll lay here
With the evesong in our ear
Daffadown dillydown dillydown

Have you felt the weight of worry on your back?
Winter’s bone is hard on the teeth
You been glad when that burden is lifted?
And like the sweet songbird you’re free
Like the sweet songbird you’re free

And the flowers raise their faces
And sing dawn’s early praises
My lover we’ll wake here
With the mornsong in our ear
Daffadown dillydown dillydown
Daffadown dillydown dillydown
Daffadown dillydown dillydown
Daffadown dillydown dillydown
