Toothless-The Sirens ft. The Staves

What happens when a band falls into hiatus? How easy it is for the bass player to go solo? Will he succeed or he will be always compared to his band's stuff? Ed Nash is the obvious answer for everything. The bass player of Bombay Bicycle Club, is working solo now under the name Toothless. As he said before, the fact that you are all alone can be terrified at first, but once you realise that you are completely free to do what you like, life gets better. Not easier, but better. Nash, ran into Greek mythology to get inspired by the metaphors that are hidden. As you can see, it worked out pretty good!
For the track "Sirens" he asked from The Staves to feature. The harmonies of the sisters are the perfect combo. Toothless' first album is already published under the title The Pace of the Passing. Make sure you have a listen. Watch the music video and read the lyrics of Siren here:


Toothless-The Sirens ft. The Staves

Tie my arms around the mast
Keep me here ’til we’re past
Though I’m safe I feel the spray
Close my eyes, hear them sing

This is the way to your heart
This is the way to your mind
If you don’t want to take part, how will you unwind?

Like a ship I start to sway
Closer now, hear them say

This is the way to your heart
This is the way to your mind
If you don’t want to take part, how will you unwind?

There is a way in your heart
There is a way in your mind
If you don’t want to take part, how can you decline?

If you don’t even worry your hours away, way
If you don’t even worry your hours away…
stray, stray
stray…

Tie my arms around the mast
Keep me here ’til we’re past
Hold a course and do not stray
In my way, hear them say

[x2]
This is the way to your heart (there is a way to your heart)
This is the way to your mind (there is a way to your mind)
If you don’t want to take part, how will you unwind?

We will never go away, way ah
We will never go away
We will never go away, way ah
We will never go away

If you don’t even worry your hours away, way
If you don’t even worry your hours away, stay
stray, stray
 stray, stay…
