about

Two Bears North Edmonton, Alberta

“Tight, punchy, pop-rock replete with melodic hooks, intricate rhythms and some inexplicable/intangible quality that makes it all so utterly charming.” (Rokline Magazine)

Two Bears North fearlessly expresses the relentless battle between darkness and light. The trio is fronted by Sophie Heppell and Melissa Walker who embody this contrast—a musical collision of yin and yang.

Track Name: Just The Sea
I guess I'll be alone just the sea and me
That's alright I'll be alone just the sea and me.

This sickness that's come over me it turns my insides inside out
But I'm accustom to the waves the rum excess the salty sprays
(Too much rum is never the problem)
This nausea's from another source, inner ache a strong remorse
Your words are biting like a shark teeth are bared eyes are dark
(Cut me, crush me, but never quite kill me)

Walk me down the plank
Cast off severed and sank

So I guess I'll be alone just the sea and me
That's alright I'll be alone just the sea and me.

We'd sit out underneath the stars moonshine moonlight always ours
A compass kept us on our way a guiding light to far away
(Treasured life is what we searched for)
The tides have turned and you've left me this dead mans chest is so heavy
The ship we built goes up in flames Davy Jones calls out my name
(He is waiting at the bottom)

Walk me down the plank
Cast off severed and sank

(Chorus)
So I guess I'll be alone just the sea and me
That's alright I'll be alone just the sea and me.
So I guess I'll be alone just the sea and me
That's alright I'll be alone just the sea and me.
So I guess I'll be alone just the sea and me
That's alright I'll be alone just the sea and me.
Track Name: Dandy Lion
There is a vase
Of Tiger Lilies watching you they're trapped in a gaze
On the window sill they're sitting.
Wishing that they
Had the guts to spread their seeds and float on a way
But they're stuck in they're glassy prison.

They call you the gold coin of the garden.
Guardian of wild grassy dens.

Your yellow mane
Shines like the sun what can be done to tame you?
You're independent, transient.
You slip through my hands
Like sand or water through the cracks I'm left here all alone
You're free to run you're free to roam.
You float on the wind
Off on your next great adventure sailing on
Your mind is sharp your back is strong.
You find a new lair
Set up a home all of your own and blossom new life.
Seems to them you've got it right 'cause

They call you the gold coin of the garden.
Guardian of wild grassy dens.
You're the one that we've all got our eye on.
'Cause you're one lovely fine and dandy lion.

Where are you going, where are you going now?
Where are you going, where are you?

They call you the gold coin of the garden.
Guardian of wild grassy dens.
You're the one that we've all got our eye on.
'Cause you're one lovely fine and dandy lion.
Track Name: Stick In The Spokes
That water's looking awful calm and I can't smell any storm
The hurricane has blown away and darkness became dawn
And I don't mean to misinform you I know you like it mild
But now I want to fuck it all up and do something wild.

'Cause I can't sit still and I need a thrill right now
Complacencies my worst enemy
And I can't relax when I'm on my back
Throw a stick in the spokes and this jars to a halt.

I thought you looked so good on paper but you're plain as the page
Nice enough doesn't quite cut it your kindness is a cage
And I don't mean to misinform you I know you play it safe
But now I want to fuck it all up be free and misbehave.

'Cause I can't sit still and I need a thrill right now
Complacencies my worst enemy
And I can't relax when I'm on my back
Throw a stick in the spokes and this jars to a halt.

A stale smell fills up the air the colours all are beige
Something new has long retired but something blue has stayed.
Track Name: Frankie
Look at all this mess you've made your instability has caused this
Hot and cold starts to erode this stable ground and dusty road
Look at all this mess you've made your instability has caused this
Stones and eggshells start to crack you lurch ahead not looking back
Look at all this mess you've made your insecurity has caused this
Left me lying in your dust as you rush on to self destruct
Look at all this mess you've made your insecurity has caused this
Blanketing this good old town with you like this we all go down.

There you go again, There you go again.

Frankie you're leaving me
What am I supposed to do without you, what am I supposed to do without
Frankie you're leaving me,
What am I supposed to do without you, what am I supposed to do without you.


Look at all this mess you've made you've buried all your secrets in a
treasure box filled up with gold without a map, no key, no code
Look at all this mess you've made you've buried all my secrets so you
wouldn't have to deal with them a rocky prison they're condemned
Look at all this mess you've made you've buried all of us so that you
wouldn't have to compromise killing all who you despise
Look at all this mess you've made you've buried all of us so that you
could declare that you have won but look at all this damage done.

There you go again, There you go a, There you go a, There you go again.

Frankie you're leaving me
What am I supposed to do without you, what am I supposed to do without
Frankie you're leaving me,
What am I supposed to do without you, what am I supposed to do without you.
Track Name: Monster
This surgery you're doing you're picking me apart
You slice me to the soul and squeeze my beating heart
I don't know what you're seeing but you seem to see right through me
I don't know what you're thinking but that's no surprise.

Now your gloves are on so all the bets are off
The anaesthetic sets in but I'm already numb
Doctor, doctor save me I don't want to die
But I thought you might be fatal so it's no surprise.

That you made me a gun shell hard and hollow
you made me choke when I swallow
you made me a monster.

The operation's over you say it's a success
My brain and heart are missing from my head and my chest
I'll be safer this way with nothing left to break
though I'm not sure if I'm happy but that's no surprise

you made me lose the light from my eyes
you made me hide behind this disguise
you made me a monster

you made me talk until I'm screaming
you made me scratch until I'm bleeding
you made me bend until I'm breaking
you made me rage until I'm shaking
you made me.
Track Name: Shadow
The darkness that lives inside your heart
Get to know the cruelest parts
and tame them the wild and the wolf
The sickness that lives inside your head
get to know the things you dread
and tame them the wild and the wolf

The weight that weighs upon your chest
get to know why you obsess
and tie it to a red balloon
The burden that ways upon your back
get to know the white and black
and tie it to a red balloon

Walk with the darker side!
Walk with the darker side!

I'm taking note of what I lack
and there's no time to look back now
hands unclench I'm letting go
With just the moon for company
her light my silhouette and me
I'm walking with my shadow.

The secret you try to hide away
it doesn't keep the beast at bay
embrace it your darkness and your light
The shame that persistently replays
be the hunter not the prey
embrace it your shadow and your light

Shadow light collide!
Walk with the darker side!

I'm learning to see what's really real
what is fake and what I feel
hands unclench I'm letting go
With just the moon for company
her light my silhouette and me
I'm walking with my shadow.

I know now the beast that lives inside
who's stronger than a lions pride
hands unclench I'm letting go
With just the moon for company
her light my silhouette and me
I'm walking with my shadow.
