about

Eskimeaux is the recording project of songwriter and producer Gabrielle Smith. Smith started using the moniker in 2007, releasing experimental and noise albums through 2010, and developing the sound over the years into the realm of more structured songwriting (2011's "Two Mountains"), droney, dark EDM (2012's "Eskimeaux"), and more recently, as evident in her new album, "O.K." (to be released on Double Double Whammy), beat-driven and poetic bedroom pop. Eskimeaux is a founding member of The Epoch, a Brooklyn-based songwriting and art collective.

Track Name: Broken Necks
When I had a million arms I would wrap them around all your body parts
try to keep away all that could do you harm
try to keep out sickness and keep you warm
but every time the going got tough one by one they were falling off
While you were breaking your neck trying to keep your head up
I was breaking my neck just to stick it out for you
and I know we'd hang out everyday if I wasn't 100 miles away
from our tadpoles gathering in the creek
and our baby birds learning how to shriek
All the eagles I still haven't seen and the trees proudly alive and green
I could swear they are there just for you and me
whether friends or in love there's an indisputable beauty
While you were breaking your neck trying to keep your head up
I was breaking my neck just to stick it out for you
If the distance between us grows too strong
I would saturate silence with your song
'cause you'd rub my back 'til the skin smoothed out
smoother than the glass that the sea spits out
and don't forget to take your shirt off, run into the water
the birds are singing louder and the days are getting longer
open up your hands and accept that this has ended
"Nothing in this world is holier than friendship"
