LIFE VEST by MATTHIAS FORENBACHER & THE BISONS
Stories about broken hopes. About moving around. Songs about the sea and rivers. About a lake named Walden Pond. A journey between the old and the new world. Between desire, forgetting and leaving behind.
"There's lighthouses and harbours and there is custom love."
Recorded in Canada.
