1.
Back to the river, the river where we met in that empty winter city. Where I recognized the sound of a word. There was no confusion. And I closed the door of the motel aisle. I walked alone the melted ice, bought a six hundred page book and I wrote “I love you” twice. Two blocks later, an ancient looked at me right in the eye, made a toast with a tree and yelled from his wheel- chair: “Keep going, get hurt”.
2.
A God on Earth must be treated like a God on Earth. Have mercy. This bed we lay on could turn as red as your dress. Eyes like tears. Little blue crabs escaped from the largest beach I’ve ever seen. They got here to witness how these two bodies match perfectly. Never reached that amount of nightmares in a form of beginning. There’s a flowered shirt, a way out and a couple of long drinks.
3.
You’ve been pleasantly seated such a long time, considering the option of escaping, going elsewhere heading North. Crawling over a method of stand glorious, next but remote, facing each single miserable fact or moment of mystery, an always-joyful purpose or matter of action to put yourself to- gether. You’ve been claiming: “truth is next”. You’ve been saying: “truth is worthless”.
4.
She’s singing to her hair. There is a dolphin stuck at the door. Children are playing with it, feeding him instead of riding it. Their plates are full of coins. She feels sick. The last embrace was too hard to handle. Now she’s thinking she could stop helping each other healing them with sweetened cures. “Where’s the rice”, she says. And he answers “there’s no pressure at all”. Only one little girl left by the dolphin: They’re gone. Memories are stunningly different.
5.
I am gonna risk the value of every single chance. Decent needs on time, part silence, part judgment. I am gonna face ten people in a white hall, praying for maintain the differences in a short conversation. He stands up and draws a few steps across the living room. Then, he looks forward and she’s gone again.

ABOUT WE PREFER TO

We Prefer To references the legendary motto “I would prefer not to”, stated by Bartleby in Herman Melville’s famous story Bartleby the Scrivener: A Story of Wall Street. This title encapsulates a whole post-modern era of passive resistance. We Prefer To stands for direct action. We Prefer To calls for collective participation. We Prefer To resists encroachment and fight for spaces of freedom, artistic and otherwise. We Prefer To encapsulates Seward, a band evolving day after day upon a free and collaborative spirit, strong from its origins.

The album have been released on a special edition, containing a a bag of tea created by the group, a box of matches and a deck of black poker cards. We Prefer To has been produced by Scott Solter (St. Vincent, Two Gallants, Dirty Projectors…) and Matt Pence (Midlake, John Grant…), recorded at The Echo Lab in Denton, Texas, and mastered by Carlos Freitas (Sepultura, Omara Portuondo, Caetano Veloso...) at Classic Mastering in São Paulo, Brazil.

Seward joined forces with Gandula (Za!, Big OK…) and Foehn (Oso Leone, Balago…) in Spain, Moorworks in Japan (Howe Gelb, Xiu Xiu...) to release #WePreferTo in 2018.
