Unicorn Hole What an awesome introduction to the NCU for WWG! The music is atmospheric, catchy, and unique. We learn just enough about Nick to want to know more. I've listened dozens of times and I'm still coming back. Love it! Favorite track: Aetheric Sanctuary.

Feed The Bears Beautiful. I can't wait to become further acquainted with these tracks. There's a pretty steady mood set throughout, but the energy changes a lot so the whole album had my undivided attention. WWG showing once again that they are well versed and talented, more so than ever before. Favorite track: Leaving.

about

A melancholy departure from their typical sound, Weekly Words and Grammar produced part two of the NCU- a sprawling fantasy tale told by some of your favorite bands in the scene.

Follow Nick, a reclusive mage with a dark past, as he travels through the snowy mountain town of Boraea in this atmospheric and moody nintendocore release.

Track Name: Dreaming
I raise my hand
To shield my eyes
Blocking both the moon and stars suspended in the sky
I raise my hand
To hide the light
Feeling something tugging at me just out of my sight

Flickering blue shadows pulling
Me somewhere the sun can’t follow

I raise my hand
A drowning man
Waving for a rescuer far off and on the land
I raise my hand
And I can’t stand
Stumble to the earth and slowly sink into the sand

Flickering blue shadows pulling
Me somewhere the sun can’t follow

(I’m dragged below into the earth
Darkness that encloses me without death or rebirth
Guttering blue figures stand and watch watch me
Struggling and judging me for things I should have done)

I can feel their fingers twisting
Sinking into skin
I feel them growing from my eyes
And threading tendrils deep within
I feel them worming through my thoughts
Corrupting everything they touch
I feel them slither like a snake around my heart
And in my guts and even now
I feel their fingers twisting
Sinking into skin
I feel them growing from my eyes
And threading tendrils deep within
I feel them worming through my thoughts
Corrupting everything they touch
I feel them slither like a snake around my heart
And in my guts until I wake
Track Name: Twenty Years of Snow
Wake up
Put on my coat
Breathe in the air

Wipe the ice off frozen windows

I am a ghost
Pen to paper, I write a note
Finding answers, asking questions
View the world through fractured lenses

And I write everything that I know
Filling papers and pages and tomes
But I buried it all in the snow
Somewhere down in the shadows below-oh-oh-oh

Wake up
Put on my coat
It’s the same routine that I’ve lived so long
I’m buried under twenty years of snow
Track Name: Boraea
Walk through streets
Down the snowy boulevard
I turn my gaze from those I meet
But I feel their eyes upon me
While they glance as if to say:
“Who is this stranger that we’ve known for years?”

I try to hurry
Gather up the things I need
So I can scurry
Like a rat back to its cage
But I feel them watching
Feel it like a noose around my neck
“Where are you going, why are you still here?”

That’s what I fear

Take me swiftly back to my home
Someplace quiet, someplace alone
Track Name: Aetheric Sanctuary
Home again
I begin
I may not know the way to bend the world to every whim
At least in here I can pretend

The gentle chime of bells rings softly through the dusty air
I start, as I was lost in thought, and quickly take my chair
Delicate instruments all dance to currents drifting by
The leyline flows, an undertow, unseen by my unpracticed eye

In here the answers flow like water from a mountain stream
To wash away the past, draw cracks in walls that form between
A silver light to banish shadows to their frigid plane
Aetheric sanctuary, quiet and my own escape

I set aside my book
Let forth a silent sigh
I almost overlook the instrument upon my shelf
A glowing, guiding light

In here the answers flow like water from a mountain stream
To wash away the past, draw cracks in walls that form between
A silver light to banish shadows to their frigid plane
Aetheric sanctuary, quiet, calming

Yet I know;
Silver glow
Guiding Me
Where I must go
(ooh, ooh, ohh)
Track Name: Leaving
I don my coat
I close my eyes
I swallow down all of the doubt I kept inside

For twenty years I’ve languished here
No reason to advance
And no excuses for escape
Was all I wanted just a chance?

I don my coat
I close my eyes
I swallow down all of the doubt I kept inside

In isolation I remained
But now it’s time to change
To venture out into the day
To journey south and meet my fate

But even now I hear the whisper when I close my eyes
“You can’t outrun your past, you shouldn’t even dare to try
You left your home, escaped alone, killed under darkened skies
The mark you bear upon your soul will be there til you die”

But still I go
I have to know
What have I found?
What waits for me?
