about

Husband and wife, Jason and Pia Robbins, left Los Angeles in 2005 with their dog, Walrus, in search of a setting that better suited their personalities. Something smaller, slower, and quieter was in order. They landed in Eugene, Oregon. Even the rain felt right. The change in scenery had a profound impact on their musical relationship: The Comforters was born.

Following the release of their first record, Transplants, The Comforters quickly found ears from around the world tuned to the bittersweet in life. Radio programs in the U.S. and Europe played “Lazy Sundays” and “I Want To Rock”. Most recently, “I Want To Rock”, was featured in the movie Girls Named Pinky that debuted at the 2010 SXSW Film Festival.

The Comforters follow the emotional punch they delivered on Transplants with a knockout blow of ten alternatingly heartbreaking and heartwarming songs on their new record, Two Piece Orchestra. “We had some huge highs and some huge lows in our lives and those experiences definitely made their mark on this record,” says Pia. “For some of the songs, like “Would It Break Your Heart?” and “Gibraltar,” it wasn’t until we had recorded them and lived with them for a while that we realized, “Oh boy, that’s what that song is about.” “This is both the record we wanted to make and the record that, I think, we had to make – for us,” adds Jason, “We’re extremely proud of this record.”

lyrics

I saw the fall of fall and winter won
One red leaf still hanging on
It fell like blood upon the fallen snow
End of war, the final blow

I saw the fall of fall and winter won
No redress, what’s done is done
The sky’s a battleship shade of grey
Dispatched to keep the sun at bay

Snore, snore, the brown bear’s bound to snore
Soar, Soar, the bluebird’s bound to soar
And o’er the land, the seeds, like spies, are planted in the underground

Snore, snore, the brown bear’s bound to snore
Soar, Soar, the bluebird’s bound to soar
And o’er the land, the seeds, like spies, are planted in the underground
