Not all Severins songs are about cosmic power, depth psychology, ecosoirituality, animism and the like. Some are about plumbing. The unrelenting pressures of parenthood, including showing loving kindness to children even when they are unravelling our patience faster than a kitten works over a ball of wool, only not so cute. The need to clean up after ourselves and take care of water. The desire to just get the job done, as best we can, and then put up our feet. You know, the everyday stuff we can all relate to (with a subtle message of the cosmic psyche business woven throughout – I can’t help myself 🙂

The big gig where we play this psychedelic post-punk indie art rock for the world, the album launch for the Severins vinyl record “Reconnect”, is coming soon.

Friday the 28th of June at the Northcote Social Club in Melbourne, Australia. If you’re there, be thrilled by a cosmic wondershow, a passionate call to arms for the ecospiritual rebellion, and a laugh, to be sure. Listen to all Severins songs and check out some film clips, including a new one and some archival footage of our sonic madness, here.

The Plug – lyrics

I wanna hold this water, Do I gotta? Yeah I oughta

But I got a screaming daughter, I gotta get my house in order

We used up all this water, Now it’s dirty and it’s sordid

The toys yeah they’re my daughter’s, I gotta sort this bricks and mortar

Coz it’s in and it’s out and it’s up and it’s down

It’s all over the shop and i’ve gone out and bought the wrong part

Now it’s swirling around, if I slide the blade under

I can take out the broken bit and then I can get some relief, yeah, and put up my feet

If I cut it too short then I’ve really mucked up

But if I leave it too long I’ll be doing this over again, yeah, all over again

Coz it’s in and it’s out and it’s up and it’s down

It’s all over the shop and i’ve gone out and bought the wrong part, again,

I’ve bought the wrong part

Punch out a hole, let it all go,

I fixed up a thing, now I’ll go with the flow.
