Stadiums & Shrines
Dreams of Austria


A milky bridge rolls over the alps of Zell am See. Morning glory foreign.

Somewhere in the valley, a cathedral bellows. Organ cries ricochet in thermal currents.

A great lift; the wings respond.

White horses prance below, their lines written loosely across the vast face of the mossy glade.

Curiously charmed, the passengers wish this drift to last—to reach some zephyr’s summit, or recede into the lost sanctuary. Or even to arrive in the company of extinct creatures.

Alas, the shade casts across the patchwork, racing to meet the glider as its brief voyage hovers to an elegant halt.


Candy Claws are no strangers to lands dreamt or hidden. We’re honored they decided to hang here with us, coincidentally right before backpacking the Austrian Alps in reality, which is roughly where they are at the moment. Ceres & Calypso in the Deep Time, their 4th full length album, is due out June 25th on twosyllable.
