about

beekeeper Vancouver, British Columbia

beekeeper is an indie post-pop power trio from Vancouver. We play danceable, singable, thinkable tunes. We meld dissonance and odd time signatures with beautiful pop hooks and male/female three-part harmonies. Our live show is quirky, unpredictable, and musically satisfying. It is not rare for our sets to end with the entire audience on stage. ... more

Track Name: Take Me Back (To The Place)
this is a vision of the world, Elliot’s wasteland, fake tan
at Broadway and Granville
and so we take a turn to east, can’t beat main street, dorthy
can’t beat home
and after dark it’s Pigeon park
go on a Pender bender
to Commercial Drive
you can find me at Alibi, don’t need a reason why, honey
just need time

take me back to the place we lay amongst the grass

how sickly seem all growing things
i don’t care what the season brings, awful things
everything’s dry in all my dreams
how sickly seem all growing things, awful things

are we ready to run? are we ready to hide?
are we out of love? are we out of time?
are we ready to drop? are we ready to die?
are we out of love? are we out of time?
i’m gonna sing and shout, i’m gonna scream it aloud
i’m gonna take this city, gonna make it mine
cos i’m not ready to run, i’m not ready to hide
i’m never outta love, i’m never outta time

how sickly seem all growing things
i don’t care what the season brings, awful things
everything’s dry in all my dreams
how sickly seem all growing things, awful things

take me back to the place we lay amongst the grass
take me back to the place we lay amongst the grass
number 9s, and number 10s, and b-lines running fast
take me back to the place we lay amongst the grass
Track Name: Bad Advice
promise me my child, when you lie, lie so you get more love
lie so you get more love
promise me young soldier, never try to prove you are alive
promise me my lover, always ask “is it necessary?”
“is it necessary?”
promise me my baby, always be astray

dododododo

promise me my child, put your faith into your splintered eye
into your splintered eye
promise me young soldier, never try to leave the firing line
promise me my lover, give yourself wholly to someone else
wholly to someone else
promise me my baby, always be astray

when i was a child like you i could not understand
why i should take a beating for possessions of a man
now that i am older it is all too plain to see
that what you have is what i want
so give it all to me

i want THIS



and THAT
