Reviews

(c) Azchael, 2008

Guangzhou's The Swamp released another wonderful piece of post-rock indie music titled The Boat beginning with a slow and moderate long intro the song soon evolves in a typical post-rock style composition. I listened to the song for many hours as a background music and it perfectly fits into the thoughts of yourself, whether you work or relax, just like a boat gives you a certain kind of safety from the waves around you, this song allows oneself to just forget the surroundings and focus on whats really important.


(c) Bitetone, by lojun, March 6, 2010

Like the soundtrack to an old fisherman’s tale, the song conveys feelings of desperation and loneliness. With sparse moments that tug at the listener’s heart, giving way to busy musical passages that command emotional power. The song is aptly titled – just like the feeling of a boat on the sea, the song drifts through similar musical build up and climaxes.

Statement of the Band

每个人的心里,都有一艘憧憬之船。


乘搭它,去作最遥远星际的旅行,去到理想的彼岸,或者回到无忧的童年……

期盼弥补过错,期盼辛劳换来丰厚的收获,

病人期盼痊愈,老弱期盼尊严,孤独的人期盼着一份温暖的爱情,

失去自我的人茫然四顾,寻觅着方向,被误解的人们期盼着聆听。

人们世世代代都在追寻,渴望和平,渴望公平和正义,渴望着真正的自由!

被欺骗的总有一天知道真相,只要你从不放弃你的希望。


继续呵护着它吧,你的那一份憧憬。

那么多梦想已经成为事实,还有更多的也会一一实现。
