Madeleine Crumbles (single version)

by Major Parkinson

/

about

Madeleine Crumbles is the first single from Major Parkinsons upcoming album, due in April 2017. A five-minute pop journey, sometimes playful, sometimes deeply nostalgic, the song features Linn Frøkedal (The Megaphonic Thrift), and a host of guest musicians, and shows a densely orchestrated side of Major Parkinson rarely seen before. The song stands alone as a single in this context, but has a very defined place in the upcoming album, a progressive epic further exploring the cinematic worlds of the bands previous releases.

lyrics

I remember the wine
and your tomes of wonder
but no nursery rhyme
in the book of hunger
And as you clung to a twine
in your final slumber
I said: «this leads to a kite
up in the wild blue yonder»

Follow the moon
wind in the willows
in the hollow coriander clouds
dance in the mist across the asylum
where the sirens echo in the snow
beyond the afterglow
you must
you must believe in magic

And we danced in the hall
on Madeleine crumbles
through Joyce's The Dead
and The Lass of Aughrim
A Sea Spell in the dark
for the late Rosetti
you were alive as a lark
with a thorn of black confetti in your eye

Follow the moon
wind in the willows
in the hollow coriander clouds
dance in the mist across the asylum
where the sirens echoed in the snow
beyond the afterglow
you must
you must believe in magic

about

Major Parkinson Bergen, Norway

Major Parkinson is a particle collider of huge, cinematic melodies, catchy pop hooks, impossible rhythms and psychedelic lyrics. A distinctly different band, with an unconventional, associative and almost irrational approach to the art of writing music.
