about

NO FLOWERS is the latest creative endeavor from longtime musical collaborators, Jebb Riley and Thomas Moses. Having previously played together in Disappearer and There Were Wires, Riley (who plays bass in Boston's Doomriders) enlisted Moses to help flesh out a batch of songs he had been writing for which there was no band. The songwriting sessions were productive yet offered a new challenge to the pair: all instruments would be played by the duo. NO FLOWERS sees bassist/singer Riley on guitar for the first time in a band and Moses, in addition to guitar, adding drums to his repertoire.

The duo blend their experience and influences together to form something new yet somewhat familiar. Their songs range from dense to spare, uplifting to melancholy, but even in their most discordant moments, hold tight to melody.

EP ONE is the first of 3 EP's that NO FLOWERS will release over the coming months.

Track Name: Death Will Bring Us Together
the years stretch like a spiderweb
just above your head
you turn away, now there's ten more
look at the bones they've collected

far away in the corner
that's where it used to stay
now it's climbing up the ladder
arriving any day

death will bring us together
just like it separates
death will bring us together
back to the same place

time spins a strand of silver
cold and shiny like a blade
tears link one after another
like memories on a chain

death will bring us together
just like it separates
death will bring us together
back to the same place
death will bring us together
I guess til then we'll wait
death will bring us together
please remember my face
Track Name: Cloudy Eyes
is there a black cloud coming
just beyond the hill
a rain to was my head clean
and watch the memories spill

will it stay like this
or will I just forget
the way we used to kiss
the days lying in bed

I know they're out there hunting
I hear their boots in the street
will my brain betray me
give up the secrets I keep

and my dearest loves
faces stolen from me
such strange imitations
that I can't even see

will the veins grow wild
like ivy searching for light
will the nerves grow blind
forever lost in the night

thoughts cracked and peeling
the pain(t)s almost gone
time-bleached and bleeding
just leave me out in the sun
