High Water: Background
“Orchestral arrangements, watery melodies, and synth textures over a wurbling guitar riff opens this song about the most dynamic force in nature: water. Man comes from the water in a biological context (saltwater in our veins) as well as a geological and mythological context. The Flood or Great Deluge is referenced in the first verse.”—Robert Telleria, Merely Players
“I always feel comfortable when I’m near water, be it the sound of the ocean or even the refreshing feeling of a dip in the swimming pool. I remember being in the center of one of Japan’s biggest cities and the noise pollution was incredible. But right in the middle was this garden with a small waterfall that ran over a bunch of stones. It was designed in such a way that, if you stay by the waterfall, the sound of water would drown out all the surrounding noises. I think the Japanese understand the therapeutic nature of water better than most.” (Canadian Musician)—Neil in Merely Players
