about

Cut into triangles with the crust left on, Sparklesaurus' debut EP, 'Perennials', delves into dark truths about humanity through plant imagery and concentric wordplay - with an undercurrent of gentle optimism. These themes are set amidst a landscape of scaling synths, swirling guitar tones, colourful harmonies, and a stoney, muscular rhythm section. Synergy and friendship are the pb & j of this sweet, musical sandwich.

Ottawa Beat wrote, "It's young, vibrant, and self-aware, while simultaneously unaware of its magical hold on its audience... Ultimately, the magic of Sparklesaurus lies in their ability to make music for dreamers and make-believers...for sentimental, misty-eyed folks wearing nostalgia goggles.”

Track Name: The Royal We
I was born with dark blue eyes
My first sound was a cry
I am an individual

I am your majesty
I am the royal We
I am a social animal

Ahh what are we if not with each other?
Ahh

You’re warm and I’m warm
We can dance alone or together
We rain and we storm
The royal We determines the weather

The taste of nothingness
Lingers on my lips
I need to see, to be authentically

Ahh what are we if not with each other?
Ahh

You’re warm and I’m warm
We can dance alone or together
We rain and we storm
The royal We determines the weather

The royal We determines the weather
The royal We determines the weather
The royal We determines the weather
The royal We determines the weather
Track Name: No Lux
It seems like so long ago
I had a rock, I had a home
Now you are so far away
Something happened along the way
You got lost, I can’t find you

Oh it’s the stuff you read about
So bizarre, I’m finding out

I don’t have to stay, no matter what you say
Cause I did my time walking your line
In the night without a light

Water falling from your hair
Shining droplets through the air
Reminding me the universe is within you, is within me
Exactly where we’re meant to be
Wish that I could see the stars, maybe they’d show me where you are

Oh it’s the stuff you read about
So bizarre, I’m finding out

I don’t have to stay, no matter what you say
Cause I did my time walking your line
In the night without a light

You’re on fire, I can’t watch you burn
