Water Song EP is Mekila's second commercial release on GYPSYPOP RECORDS, following his debut release, The Finest Day. The anthemic vitality of the title track, "Water Song" and the layered, mystical vocals on "Either Side of the River", lead the unsuspecting listener to the sweet, driving power of the EP's finale, "Wild Among the Wolves". With its colorful harmonies and a surprisingly multifaceted movement of tone, Water Song EP marks an important and delicious shift in Mekila's career towards further exploration of sonic strangeness.

Track Name: Water Song
Lyrics by Mekila

I walk the high cliffs with my empty cup
I know just the place to fill it up
Presently when dawn arrives,
I will rain down on the river that is me

And I will drink deeply of my fall
And I will carry me down the mountain, down the mountain

I am an elephant with a full trunk
I know good reason to be joyful,
there is a lake
in the dead of the desert,
I take my friends there
And we live on, we live on

While the good rain thunders down
The babies swim for hours

This is just a water song, this is just a water song
