about

Yes Nice Edmonton, Alberta

Yes Nice are an indie act from Edmonton and Vancouver whose music is a mixture of lush harmony, folkie guitars, and slight electronic flourishes; a beautifully-composed sonic stew captured on computer but sounding timeless. Scott McKellar — the live bassist/vocalist who serves as the band's producer/arranger on recordings— calls such sound "creating landscapes." ... more

Track Name: Empty Space
Trying to find the right sound
That could make sense of our time in this place
When you sang you could feel it close
In buildings made out of stones and ghosts
You told me just to keep this a secret
A word that turns into dust when you speak it
You write about a spirit in your stories
That came down to tell another story
But we build our cities higher than the heavens
And tell the world to watch what happens

We break into cracks all the smooth surfaces
And make sense of our time in this place

To fill up the empty space between the light and your face
To fill up the empty space between the light and your face
To fill up the empty space between the light and your face

I found a love but I try to deny it
When buildings made of stone crumble in the quiet
I found a book that was only ever stolen
With words that turned into wars when you told them
And now we think we cam laugh at the image
But its hard not to think that there's something
That fills all the spaces between us
And points us towards the good things
Track Name: Water Wine
I was a miner
I carried a load out
I was good man
I let the light in
You took a long time
Up on the mountain
I didn’t know where
I was getting scared

You called the bread stone
You called the water wine

I had it kind of
but I’ll tell it to you now
Watching the guru
Crossing the line
I didn’t mind

I was pretending
To walk on the ocean
Just for a second
I was in the waves
Drawing your lines
Around your eyelids
I gave you the sunset
You didn’t get it

You called the bread stone
You called the water wine

I had it kind of
but I’ll tell it to you now
Watching the guru
Crossing the line
I didn’t mind

You took a long time
Up on the mountain
Track Name: Only Cause' You Can't
Shake me now until I fall
Taken the body now take it all
It’s not a heart that I won’t give
It’s just the way you said I did

Don’t you know it’s only cause you can’t
Don’t you know it’s only cause you can’t
You want to love her like you love yourself

Stones cry out of the air
Mirror the shower of melted stone
You breathe like someone’s words
Sing it loud like a beating drum

Don’t you know it’s only cause you can’t
Don’t you know it’s only cause you can’t
You want to love her like you love yourself

It’s not a heart that I won’t give
It’s just the way you said I did
Track Name: and the Whale
In my distress I called, you answered
From the bottom of my grave I called out
You hurled me into the sea, into the deep
The very heart of sea

The currents took me the waves splashed over me
You said I’ve been banished from your eyes
I have been banished from your eyes

And the waters threatened me
The deep surrounds me
To root of the mountains I sink down
To the root of the mountains I sink down

Blame it on the lies were given
But I keep bringing them home
Blame it on the life worth living
That I keep waiting for
Blame it on the lies were given
But I keep bringing them home

And my life is fading
Fading
Track Name: Your Name
When I first heard your name I was young and wandering
Through the noisy rhyming scheme
My mind was beginning
My pictures were sure
That I drew in the carpet

The silent times when the dead were moving on
Now I wrote you name down on the stone
And held it high above your throne
I could never lay it down

And I wrote your name with heaven’s pen
And gave it to the minds of men
They could talk it
They could talk it loud

Now I write your name down on a river
I write you name down on the ocean
Where your ashes were poured
Where my dreaming had run from me

I write your name down on the river
I write your name down on the sea
Where Jesus walked
Where my sins washed away

In your heart
In your heart

Some say you’ve got to find your answers here
Some say you’ve got to find your answers clear
Track Name: Ghost or a Knife
Turn me on with remote control
I’ll be yours for the taking
Yours for your own
You can switch me off
Break my bones
You can poke my eyes
Tell me lies

Find me deep in a hole
Or turned into dust in time
Or fallen behind
I'll walk like the lame
And talk like the wrong
I'll wait for the garden
or wait for the fall

And when you’re thinking back
Will you know what you saw in the light?
Was it a ghost or a knife?

Wandering
Searching for gold
Or a home
When the treasure is out
in the sea of storms
Well you float on waves
And sail to the sun
But your sleep gets scared
Night has come

And when you’re thinking back
Will you know what you saw in the light?
Was it a ghost or a knife
You were holding to?

And when you’re thinking back
Will you know what you saw in the light
Was it a ghost a knife?
Track Name: Remote Control
Up all night with bloodshot eyes
To the colour of epileptic lights
My family's in the living room
Frozen like the statues on our lawn

Pushing all my body out the middle of a TV screen
Cut the umbilical cord float down the image stream

Now my thought is remote control
You can turn me off or turn me on
My mother told me not to stare
But sometimes it just feels like I’m in there

Pushing all my body out the middle of a TV screen
Cut the umbilical cord float down the image stream

Now my mine…..

All of my shows
I’m a star in my home
I drive their cars in my mind
Bless their hearts

Pushing all my body out the middle of a TV screen
Cut the umbilical cord fall down the industry
Track Name: Blindfolded
Blindfolded
Your gonna to find out
How it goes around here

Feel the wind on your mind
Like the spirit of our time

Call it light what you cannot see
Call it out

Blindfolded
Your gonna find out how it goes around here

That’s for sure
Like you waken
That’s for sure
Like you take it away

Call it light what you cannot see
Call it out

Call it light what you cannot see
Call it out

Blindfolded
Your gonna find out
How I goes around here
Track Name: Horses
I’m gonna wait ‘till judgment day
You say ice and I say up in flames
I’m gonna march around this town
Seven time with seven trumpet sounds
When the final trumpet blows his horn
Call on the Lord to come and take me home

Black, red, white and blue
Horses on the clouds are charging through
Whiter rider wheres a crown
Red makes war and black dries up the ground
When the pale blue rider draws his sword
You can’t stop the coming of the Lord

I’m gonna wait ‘till judgment day
You say ice and I say up in flames
I’m gonna march around this town
Seven time with seven trumpet sounds
When the final trumpet blows his horn
Call on the Lord to come and take me home

Black, red, white and blue
Horses on the clouds are charging through
Black, red, white and blue
Hold your breathe the end is coming soon
All the nations at each others throats
You can’t fight the coming of the Lord

I’m gonna wait ‘till judgment day
You say ice and I say up in flames
I’m gonna march around this town
Seven time with seven trumpet sounds
When the final trumpet blows his horn
Call on the Lord to come and take me home
Track Name: Mountain Man
It’s time to let go of all those things you said
It’s time to feel all of your wounds
You’ll be going now into the valley
When the mountain man, he lets you down

You say you don’t believe in
But I hear you praying at night
Like strings are tied to your hanging hide
While the mountain man, he lets you down

Now you’re climbing high and looking low
And the more you see, the further you’ll go
And the only reason you’ll ever slow
Is when the mountain man, he let’s you down


You can talk to a couple of memories
Or pardon your soul to a sailor
And you will hear him yell at the gates of hell
When the mountain man, he lets you down

Now you’re climbing high and looking low
And the more you see, the further you’ll go
And the only reason you’ll ever slow
Is when the mountain man, he let’s you down
