about

'Sun Of A Gun' sees Good Good Blood (aka James Smith) developing his reputation for beautiful, affecting and honest songwriting even further.

Written and recorded at home during the first flushes of spring, the album's 11 songs cautiously brighter mood reflect the time of year they were born.

Using a minimal recording set up, Smith draws on his resourceful, inner world to make each track come alive and blossom. Each one is a testament to the beautiful messiness of life, love and everything that goes with it.

With echoes of Mount Eerie, Alex G and Bon Iver, Smith nevertheless continues to show he is an artist plotting his own path and defining his own sound.

Track Name: Rolling River
She tumbles in tales
Telling all kinds of lies
What were her aims?
I cannot decide
The wind in his sails
The sea will take her ghost
Will I see her again?
Only she knows

Down by the ancient rolling river
My cautious arrow quivers
And fires off my soul
All that I ever really wanted
Was to be the one you wanted
Will that make me whole?
Fill these holes? Fill these holes?

She's calling his name
Ten times over
I'm lying there lame
It's what I do
Over and over

Like a flame that catches tinder
The glowing embers cinder
And burn away my soul
All that I ever really wanted
Was to be the one you wanted
Will that make me whole?
Fill these holes? Fill these holes?
Track Name: Dark Days
Meet me
By the river
Sweetly
Make me quiver
Your love flows
Through the dark days
And who knows
How you raise the hazy daze?

Meet me
In the town
Sweetly
Blossom all around
Your love grows
In the dark days
And who knows
How you raise the hazy, hazy, hazy daze?
Track Name: The Day I Was Born
My love rides a black horse
At night
My doubt takes a dark course
All the time

I watched a waited
I could not wake it
My heart was break'ed oh
Her love is sacred
It holds me naked
Just like the day I was born

My god does not show me
If I believe
Old mountain, you tower coldly
Above me

I watched and waited
I could not take it
My heart was break'ed oh
Her love is sacred
It holds me naked
Just like the day I was born
Track Name: Running In The Dark
So you wanna burn this town down
Run around, gone mad
So you never heard a sound now
Elevate the fame of what we have

I was sitting in the cheap seats
All I own blown away by the wind
Spent a long time with the bums and beats
Eyes roll round, look down on the way back in

Running in the dark

So "you gotta keep your pain inside"
I sway, deviate from the path ahead
But I don't see how I'm "lost and found"
I know these roads like the back of my hand

Running in the dark
