The Rifle's Spiral (3:29)

Cover of Port of Morrow

From Port of Morrow and 2 other releases

Vocalist James Mercer sings on this electronica-flexed slice of indie-folk. “One Dead land’s collided. You pour your life down the rifle’s spiral and show us you’ve earned it.” He explained the lyric during an interview on the NPR radio network: “I was thinking about religious violence and what it must be like to be in a situation where it seems that your fate has brought you to battle.”
