We Win SOme We Lose

Released October, 2016

01 The Blood Inside Your Heart (For Olive)
02 Gonna Get Good
03 We Are Love
04 Tell Me Something I Don't Know
05 Last Lemonade
06 Last Lemonade [Live]
07 The Blood Inside Your Heart (For Olive) [Live]

The Once along with the incomparable Daniel Ledwell traverse the gentle war between the heart and the head with sonic simplicity and harmonious ease on their latest release, We Win Some We Lose. It is a creation that is both epic and minute in it's scope and execution; it holds closely everything the band has been since its genesis while allowing serious strides forward in poetry and play. We Win Some We Lose explores the length of life in meek moments that mark the depths of gain within loss. It is an anthemic ode to the ‘good hurt.’ Lie down and listen.
