    halie and the moon's first full-length album, "Blue Transmissions: vol. 1 & 2", immerses itself in a world of ephemeral beauty, love, and sweet melancholy in equal measures. "Otherworldly yet intimate, their aesthetic is a kind of catch-and-release, grounded in pop smarts and yet forever urging itself into the firmament. The result is a symphonic, atmospheric sound that is no less mysterious and thrilling for being entirely accessible." (Rick Levin, Eugene Weekly, 5/4/17).

    6 never-before-recorded songs combine with 4 re-mixed and re-mastered tracks featured on the band's debut EP "Blue Transmissions: vol. 1" (released 12/8/15) to create a fully-realized body of work representing these musical "Blue Transmissions" in all their myriad forms.

    Includes full-color 6 panel eco packaging featuring all song lyrics.

lyrics

The Story (never told)
Written by Daniel Gallo (drawing the sky music, BMI)

I’m the girl outside your window painted blue
Who holds the shadows, waves goodbye and shelters you
Counts the leaves falling from your window pane
And rains forever till it comes round back again
You’re the boy that drops me down and picks me up
Breaks the mirrors in the dark and calls it luck
Lifts a hand to give the night a little something else
Measures mornings with the light inside himself

Well it’s high time that we stumbled to the city
Don’t need a dime if we shine up all our pennies
A high wire and an umbrella make a new day
Somersaulting to the faces on the subway

I’m the girl inside the book upon your shelf
With all the mirrors, poetry inside herself
A house of candles in the shadows burning bright
Asking you to shed your skin and come inside
You’re the boy that hears the wind across the town
Weaves all of his words to turn the world around
Stretches all his days like a canvass blue
And hold it to the sky to see the light shine through

Well it’s high time that we stumbled to the city
Don’t need a dime if we shine up all our pennies
A high wire and an umbrella make a new day
Somersaulting to the faces on the subway
We write the songs that we know we can believe in
Send them to a place that we won’t receive them
Cause baby that’s the only way that we know
To send the sun shining through the stereo

Because you tattooed your kisses in my mind
The only true blue valentine
And you know it cannot be denied
That you’ve haunted my room with the hazel in your eyes

We’re the story that the papers never told
About the things we couldn’t buy and never sold
We’re the honey dancing in the amber light
Of frozen dreams and Sunday schemes and second sight

Well it’s high time that we stumbled to the city
Don’t need a dime if we shine up all our pennies
A high wire and an umbrella make a new day
Somersaulting to the faces on the subway
We write the songs that we know we can believe in
Send them to a place that we won’t receive them
Cause baby that’s the only way that we know
To send the sun shining through the stereo
