about

This project started initially as a twitter joke, as Roshini posted a text-message typo as 'simulated shark' to 'stimulated'. I replied 'Stimulated Shark' is our new band name.

Being somewhat serious, I mentioned it would be fun to actually make a band called this, and Roshini mentioned she could sing. So we agreed to try writing a song.

I wrote the music and sent it to her... and many months later, she finished the lyrics inspired by a Nathaniel Hawthorne poem and recorded the vocals in her closet.

We were so pleased with the results, we decided to just credit it to ourselves, but the spirit of the stimulated shark lives on.

ps. Roshini is pronounced ROW-shnee/ nire [like fire]

Track Name: How Deep is the Ocean Blue (feat. Roshini Nair)
The morning rises quietly
Shaking off the night
The ocean crashes violently,
Aching for a fight.

There’s something stirring in the deep
Voices drowned in fog
Grayness hanging like weary sheets
Pressing cold and soft

bridge:
Calmly, ever slowly
It pulls him out to sea
A promise and destiny
Gives him bleak release

chorus:

How deep is the ocean blue
When it calls its call to you
And How deep is the ocean blue
Tell me / How blue

The earth has guilt and the earth has care,
Life demands, depletes
Peaceful sleep is ever there,
In a blue that lies beneath.

He can sense his spirit ebb
Like a feather taking flight
His body acts out of step
Reaching for the light

bridge:
Calmly, ever slowly
It pulls him out to sea
A promise and destiny
Gives him bleak release

How deep is the ocean blue
When it calls its call to you
And How deep is the ocean blue
Tell me / How blue

inspired by Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-1864)

The morning rises quietly
Shaking off the night
The ocean crashes violently,
Aching for a fight.

There’s something stirring in the deep
Voices drowned in fog
Grayness hanging like weary sheets
Pressing cold and soft

bridge:
Calmly, ever slowly
It pulls him out to sea
A promise and destiny
Gives him bleak release

chorus:

How deep is the ocean blue
When it calls its call to you
And How deep is the ocean blue
Tell me / How blue

The earth has guilt and the earth has care,
Life demands, depletes
Peaceful sleep is ever there,
In a blue that lies beneath.

He can sense his spirit ebb
Like a feather taking flight
His body acts out of step
Reaching for the light

bridge:
Calmly, ever slowly
It pulls him out to sea
A promise and destiny
Gives him bleak release

How deep is the ocean blue
When it calls its call to you
And How deep is the ocean blue
Tell me / How blue
