Versicolor Records is proud to present "Horses", the new 7" single from Seattle band Grand Hallway.
Lead singer Tomo Nakayama wrote and performed "Horses" for director Lynn Shelton's new film, "Touchy Feely"(in theaters September 6th from Magnolia Pictures), which stars Rosemarie DeWitt, Ellen Page, Allison Janney, Scoot McNairy, Josh Pais, Ron Livingston, and Nakayama, making his acting debut.
This recording of "Horses" features a string quartet of Jaclyn Shumate, Alina To, Alex Guy, and Natalie Mai-Hall, arranged by the band's pianist Aaron Otheim.
The B-side, "Off the Grid", is a song Nakayama composed last year for Richard Hugo House's literary series, "End of the Line".
As a bonus, a solo demo version of "Horses" and "I Like You" (the end credits song from "Touchy Feely") will be included as a digital download with each purchase of the 7".
Is it a blessing or a curse to be found, to be found
Is it a burden or a gift to be bound, to be bound
Are you a comma or a dot to my run-on sentence
where I was just a word that had refused to be defined
There is freedom when you say I am through, I am through
Room for something to begin all anew, all anew
I'm now a horse without a race, I will gallop where I please
and with no shame, no hesitation I'll go down upon my knees
Oh oh, oh oh
My lonely days are over, over
All my lonely days are over, over
My lonely days are over!
Love is love is love is love
No matter whom you're thinking of
So you can open all those doors
that someone closed so long ago
Cos you're bolder when you say
"I am through, I am through"
Room for something to begin.
