Our Kind Of Harmony

from by Sam Carter

supported by
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    'This is a bittersweet folk-electric concept album, influenced by his time spent in London, and the songs range from the slow and personal From the South Bank to Soho, which features exquisite viola work from Sam Sweeney, to the remarkable Drop the Bomb, which starts as a gentle ballad backed by the piano of Neil Cowley (of Adele fame) and ends as a furious electric guitar workout.’ **** The Guardian

    '‘…like one of his heroes Richard Thompson, Carter has the ability to enthral with just one climactic chord when he moves effortlessly into rock guitar mode and the jagged contrast with his softer side makes it all the more effective' fRoots

Well you floored me from across the square
A high note soaring out into the air
‘Cos I’ve been holding on to hear a voice like yours so long
You sound so good to me
You’re singing my kind of harmony

So I say hello and hold your gaze
You speak and it resonates with me for days
And now I’m wondering if you and I could start to sing
And the two parts come to be
Our kind of harmony

None of that throwaway three minute stuff
This is holy hymnody
Sacred and simple and more than enough
In the here and now, you and me
Our kind of harmony

And so we cease to sing alone
South of the river now we'll make a home
And when you’re tiring and the city seems a tuneless thing
Come on home to me
And our kind of harmony

And in the silent early evening light
I know what's coming and I know it's right
The Song of Solomon's got nothing on us when we get it on
It feels so good to me
Our kind of harmony

If in our closeness we clash for a time
As we sound in sympathy
We'll stick it out ‘til the two of us bind
Into one new melody
Our kind of harmony
