Artefacts 04:14
Ash in the ocean A word could make it last But I say in the moment it all happened so fast, please stay Because you were drowning And I didn't know You were there beneath the swirling undertow But I'm singing to you on the ocean floor that I'd give my life for you to start over To your lucky bullet and your canine tooth The artefacts that fire won't consume I'm singing to you on the ocean floor that I'd give my life for you to start over Because when you reach the end You can't return to your heroes and heroines You pretend like we were more than matter But you're at the end You're at the end

Black Maps 05:33
You won't make it on your own Even lovers die alone You won't make it out alive Even lovers die alone Don't follow the weakness Cold touch for your lost protector Cry out for forgiveness Black map to a self destruction But you won't make it all alone Even lovers die alone Your aching heart means nothing Your aching heart means nothing The grinding wheel of stars means nothing Your aching heart means nothing You won't make it out alive Even lovers die alone You won't make it out alive Even lovers die alone

about

Sometimes things just happen. And sometimes they just can’t. Such is the fate of Melbourne 6 piece Fourteen Nights At Sea, graciously bowing out with their swan songs Artefacts and Black Maps. Their first recordings with vocalist/guitarist Amy Muir, digitally and on limited edition 12″ vinyl.

After the release of 2016’s EP Acres / No Capital, the band would enter a quieter period before announcing an indefinite hiatus. But with the departure, two recordings were left unfinished. An important final chapter was left in limbo. Though Fourteen Nights At Sea would eventually become known for their expert marriage of dark rock and metal, in just two tracks Artefacts and Black Maps highlight the band’s eclectic roots. The long stretches of hypnotic, melodic washes give way to scorching guitar that evaporate into Amy’s haunting vocals. It’s remarkable not just for its earnest exploration, but for how the uncertainty has been replaced by a breathtaking introspective beauty.

about

Fourteen Nights At Sea Melbourne, Australia

FOURTEEN NIGHTS AT SEA is a ship with no captain. Borne of the tides, some untold force propels them, ever gaining momentum. Melbourne’s premier instrumental post-rock horde have become a fearsome, thoughtful force to be drank in, wholly and willingly.
