about

this is Opal.

Opal is part of a split release - Opalestial - by sleeping peonies and clouds collide.

this was going to be released on khrysanthoney records. tragically, that cannot happen anymore, but myself and chris from clouds collide decided that in honour of wilhelm and khrysanthoney, we would release the album digitally.

you can download clouds collide part of the split here - cloudscollideofficial.bandcamp.com/album/elestial

chris and i dedicate Opalestial to wilhelm - a magickal star in a starless heaven.

Track Name: Bury The Night
the night / the night is ending
the moon is sailing away
and sun is cleansing us with golden rays

it’s been a long night
too long we stared at these pages
i’d like to cast them away
let’s dance as the writing’s fading

the night / the night is ending
the moon is sailing away
and sun is cleansing us with golden rays

it’s been far too long
too long that we’ve flirted with hatred
i’d like to cast you away
and dance as your memory is fading
Track Name: Magical Girl
she holds a light that lights the corners
and she laughs and I’m taken away
she plucks the finest stars from heaven
to weave into a perfect brocade

she twirls and laughs and shines and whispers
and whispers
she twirls and laughs and shines and slips
away

she makes the air around her shimmer
and she smiles and I’m taken away
she picks the finest flowers from the garden
to craft an elegant display

she twirls and laughs and shines and whispers
and whispers
she twirls and laughs and shines and slips
away

she whispers gold and scarlet secrets
like wine on a summer day
i feel no pain when i am with her
she takes it all away

i feel no pain when i am with her
she takes it all away
Track Name: Sparkledust
She’s dancing in the gentle rain
A rainbow, bold against the grey

She burnt away everything that ever hurt her
and now it’s sparkledust
She burnt away every lie she was ever told
and now it’s sparkledust

She’s dancing in the gentle rain
A rainbow, bold against the grey

she held a candle to her own lies
and now they're sparkledust
she shone a beacon in the darkest night
and now she’s sparkledust


she’s dancing in the gentle rain
a rainbow, bold against the grey
and now she’s turned her face away
she never wants to see this place again
