about

Refining their signature power dream pop, Her Vanished Grace is back with their new release, SEE THE MOON (2011). Recorded in August through November of 2010, the new music is deliciously dark, ringing with lush melodies and jangling memories. Hear the ocean! Smell the trees! SEE THE MOON is vivid cinema of warm dark interiors and cold vast landscapes. Taking the glow that simmers beneath the surface of sleep and making real life shine like dreams, on SEE THE MOON, Her Vanished Grace captures the enormous sound of the Earth spinning on its axis.


"The song ("Passenger") is taken from the New Yorker's latest LP 'See The Moon' and establishes Charles and Nancy Nieland as having the perfect vocal tag team to accompany the layers of sulphuric chords. "Passenger" has the undeniable feeling of an early nineties classic, with the fuzz and atmospheric theatrics finally relenting to the soaring voices. Brings you back and them forward."

MP3 Hugger (2011)


"....great soundsmiths and great songwriters but neither aloof nor pretentious....their sincerity (and no small amount of talent) makes them a refreshing, compelling and relevant band that will outlast trend and whim alike."

Radio Flyer Review (2011)


"Her Vanished Grace dispense verses and choruses like a shoegazing Roxette."

Leonard's Lair (2011)


"The quartet's new album See The Moon is a sublimely dreamy collection of tracks that create a melodic atmosphere with subtle shoegaze tendencies. With swirling guitars, smooth bass lines, classically layered chords and lush vocals the LP is a mightily impressive body of work."

Believe In Sound (2011)


"The amazing, shimmering shoegaze-pop (which isn't the right genre at all, hold tight) of Her Vanished Grace is really rare. It's easy to slap "shoegaze" on it because it operates in that genre, uses all the right tricks and pedals, but at the end of the day it's hummable, it's upbeat, it's less about grey and more about that sort of blue light Didion talks about in the intro to her newest memoir."

soldoutmusic.com (2011)


"I'm a sucker for grinding ethereality, for liberal use of effects pedal, for vocals that hang suspended as if complicit of intelligent sci-fi and yeah, this band cultivates this certain deliciousness."

Lazer Guided Melody (2011)

Track Name: I Know What Time It Is
Open my Eyes
It's time to get up
I hear a sound
Coming from above
I see your face
Now I'm waking up
Yesterday's gone

That sweet voice
I thought it was a dream
You say come on
You know what time it is
Open my eyes
Trying to get up
Today is now

Now I know
It's not a dream
Tomorrow
Tomorrow
Tomorrow

Now I know
Tomorrow
Tomorrow
Tomorrow

Open my eyes
I know what time It Is
Yesterday's gone
I know what time It Is
Tomorrow's here
I know what time It Is
Today is now
Track Name: Passenger
Lost in the dark again
Out beyond the doors of sleep
The water is black as coal
An the ocean is so deep
And you will be lifted up
It will take your breath away
The words whispered in your ears
Just remember what they say

Always carry you this way
Always carry you
Always carry you this way
Always carry you

And you're just a passenger
And you're carried by the wind
Sometimes it's hard to tell
Where I end and you begin

Always carry you this way
Always carry you
Always carry you this way
Always carry you

And you're just a passenger

And you hear the evening song
Of a thousand cricket wings
The sound of the universe
In a billion tiny things

Always carry you this way
Always carry you
Always carry you this way
Always carry you

And you're just a passenger
Track Name: Desire
I want what I see
I see what I want

Silver and white, the smoothest I could find
Put down the rest, left them behind
Who could know the Lightning Whelk's design
It spoke to me, changed my mind

I get what I need
What I need
I know what I want

I decide to give this one more try
Without a doubt I decide
Spiral shapes make me feel all right
No regrets I'm inspired

Collect them all every one that I can find
There on the beach I make you mine
Lightning Whelk spiraling in smiles
Like a second chance I'm alive

What I want
I want one
I want two
I want three
Track Name: See The Moon
It's pulsing like a heartbeat
It's sending signals from forever
The water's always rising
We will go surely down together

You want a miracle cure
You'll pay no matter what the price is
(Underwater)
You said you'll be Apollo
I said I will be Dionysus

See the tide start to rise again
See the moon back so soon again

We're pushing and we're fighting
Mistaking enemies for shadows
(Underwater)
We're so obsessed with timing
We've missed the cost of all our battles
(Underwater)

You want a miracle cure
You mimic tenderness so nicely
This horror is a wonder
Remember everything's inside you

See the tide start to rise again
See it rising
See the sky getting dark again
The sun is coming
I see it coming

La La La La La La

I'll be watching I'll see it happen
I'll be watching I'll see it happen
Always changing is never changing
I'll be watching I'll see it happen

See the tide start to rise again
See it rising
See the moon back so soon again
See it rising
Track Name: Beauty Lingers
And all along you thought it always was your fault
You couldn't see you were divided, the inside from the out
And now they've got their plan to get it while they can
It's just a way to hide from what's so hard to understand

And it always goes around and it breaks without a sound
And it shatters to bring us together

Feel the fire burn your fingers
This moment is fantastic
Beauty dies, beauty lingers
I don't believe in magic

And I don't want to change you
I only want to change your mind

It came as such a shock, it broke off in the lock
And still I try to so hard to find what you've already got
I'm living in my head and everything you said
Finds a place so deep inside me that's coming back again

And it always turns around and it breaks without a sound
And it shatters to bring us together

Feel the fire burn your fingers
This moment is fantastic
Beauty dies, beauty lingers
I don't believe in magic

And I don't want to change you
I only want to change your mind

Never let go
It's beyond what you can dream
It's beyond what you control
And all that I know
Is that there's nowhere left for me
Except the beauty now right here beside you

Feel the fire burn your fingers
This moment is fantastic
Beauty dies, beauty lingers
I don't believe in magic

Feel the flame burn your fingers
Your bliss is sometimes tragic
And I would never ever change you
I only want to change your mind
Track Name: All That Matters
Deep Water
Deep Water
Water
Deep Water

We're floating

I can't describe this feeling
It's all that matters to me

Blue Water
Water
Blue Water

I can't describe this feeling
Just let it happen
I won't deny this feeling
Gonna let it happen

I won't let you go
I won't let you without me

I can't describe this feeling
But it's all that matters to me
Track Name: Sparkling Diamond
You have all the answers
You know what's the matter
It's not too late, super power
You can't stay another hour

You gave your word
Sparkle to light up the shadow
Was yours to give
More than your word
Sparks to set it on fire
Your life to live

Can you keep it all together?
How long can you stand the pressure?
The cracks are getting wider
Don't you waste another day

You gave your word
Sparkle to light up the shadow
Now take it back
Makes a fair trade
Sparks to set it on fire
Get something back

It's not too late, super power
You can't wait any longer

You gave your word
Sparkle to light up the shadow
Now take it back
Bound for heartache
Sparks to set it on fire
Now take a chance
Track Name: Make It Lighter
Hold, hold on
I'll be right back, see you later
Stay so long
Make it lighter, make it better

Home I'm on my way back
Home I'm on my way back

Turn around
See me waving, hear me saying
So, so long
Swim away and swim back to me

Home I'm on my way back to you
Home I'm on my way back
Home I'm on my way back
We are traveling through time again, the sun is gonna shine again
Home I'm on my way back
We are traveling through time again, the sun is gonna shine again

Keep it simple
Make it lighter, make it better
Love, along
I'll see you later, I'll be waiting

Home I'm on my way back to you
Home I'm on my way back
Home I'm on my way back
We are traveling through time again, the sun is gonna shine again
Home I'm on my way back
We are traveling through time again, the sun is gonna shine again

Doors and floors and walls don't matter
Inside is good, outside is better
Doors and floors and walls don't matter
Inside is good
Track Name: Dissolve
It's all right
We are home
Even though
We're all alone
Here on this island
We must find
The way back
To the other side

It's all right It's OK
There has got to be a way
Just let go 'cause you're free
You can fall right into me

Sometimes it hurts
The way we live
Sometimes we take
When we should give
Here on this island
We must find
The way back
Over and over and over

It's all right It's OK
There has got to be a way
Just let go 'cause you're free
You can fall right into me

Just dissolve what's between
What you are and what you see
Could it be what we feel
Is the only thing that's real

Beyond the truth
Beyond the lie
The breath of youth
In the breeze tonight

Like a pearl grows inside
All the secrets that we hide
Like the light of the moon
Wraps the world up in its bloom

Just dissolve what's between
What you are and what you see
Could it be what we feel
Is the only thing that's real
Track Name: Fire
Throw the switch and feed the flame
It's beautiful
Shatter to bring chaos and change
The way you move me
Dance the dance destruction's name
Beautiful
Burning angels coming again to take you away

Oh Fire Ready Aim Fire
Oh Fire Oh Fire

She folds her fingers into clay
It's beautiful
What she hides comes back again
Everything that shares her name
It's beautiful
Burning angels coming again to take you away

Oh Fire Ready Aim Fire
Oh Fire Oh Fire

Annihilation, I don't think so
No mercy for the merciful
It's like the ocean
The way you move me
The fire is burning beautiful

Oh Fire Ready Aim Fire
Oh Fire Oh Fire

Fire
Ready Set Fire
Oh Fire
Track Name: Stars Are Made Of Fire Too
And summer's over so you're counting all the things we didn't do
And heat is lifting and it's warning you

Ah now that your summer's over
Ah now that it's getting colder

It's what we're made of and you know the stars are made of fire too
Drifting in you and falling, falling
Over you

Ah now that the summer's over
Ah now that it's getting colder
Ah
Ah now that summer's over

Ah

Time won't be going slower
And next year is even closer

Ah now that your summer's over
Ah now that you're getting older
Ah your summer's over
Ah now that you're getting older

Ah

Ah your summer's over

Ah
