about

Dragon Turtle’s second full length and fifth release, Distances is a passing reflection of traveling aquatic landscapes and deserted American towns. Ships and harbors come to life with floating ghostly visions built with spaced out guitars and lush reverberated arrangements. Various sounds and instruments are buried over vocals that barely float above the water, creating songs that vary from minimal ambient to the epically psychedelic with lyrics that read like quick sketches from a traveler’s notebook.

Track Name: Narwale
drifting

through the breeze

shatters

into pieces


eyes are dry

mirrors

in the night


scatter

distant lights

signals

in the dark



morning birds

pulled by the waves

breathing


i swim in

the rushing colors

of dreams


my body crashes

against the rocks

dancing
Track Name: Beard
i sail waters

in a maze of light


floating boats

breath in and out


in foaming reach

along the pier


distant lights

hanging from the shore


crossing waters

falling through the night


a satellite

drifting above

the human tide


inbound vessels

watch

the caves

come alive.



follow lights

up and down

the street.

escaping years

buried in concrete.


i sail waters

in a maze of light


lost in my beard

in tangled sounds

of waves


falling colors

echo across the night
Track Name: Summer Drive
tracing aimless rivers

into fogged car windows

late night drive with the headlights out

in trails

of fallen moonlight

just feeling it out.


reaching out

with the windows down


passing fireflies
outrun the night

like chinese stars

before the autumn starts.
and it starts again
Track Name: Odaiba
my eyes

drift around

the open sea


lost

in trails

falling off

in the ghost

white breeze


out there

floating colors chased

out from the shore


in a breath

drifting out

push and

pulling the

oceans apart

in the warm

mix of waves

pushing you away

and drawing me in
Track Name: Sunset on the Empire
above the clouds

floating on air

still a long ways away

i feel free up here

far from the docks

and the trouble i know

circles around in my head

places i've been


lost in the clouds

in rich marmalade

see everything

i've ever seen

in a

warm rush

i fall
Track Name: Arctic Orion
slow

moves

out

here

catch up with me



in my shirt

i feel

im a marked man


fill my chest

with smoke

in rushed short breath



this strange moon

moves through my head


visions of home

move through the sand



swing my restless arms

spooked by low hanging stars

as silence rattles the shore

i step into the dark
