about

"Four of the five of us grew up in Tasmania, where place, environment, and the constant worry of bushfire in summer occupy a large part of our collective psyche. Whitewater was written after the 2016 Tasmanian bushfires, which burned out of control for over a month. The fires destroyed around 20,000 hectares of world heritage forests, causing some experts to say they displayed signs of ‘system collapse’."

lyrics

While we are away
Our home, on fire
Vast tracts of fuel

Aflame
For months
Thin casts
Of ash

Burn

Like shame
Like whitewater

Smoke roils, curling
On and on
Droplets, embers
Waves of coals

Coat the lungs
Prick the eyes
Without cease
No relent

Until all is blackened, drowned
Until all is black and drowned
