Album Notes
"Sailing Home" is Pirates Canoe's first full album. Unlike their previous EPs, which was recorded as a 6-piece band, this album features the trio sound—lighter but more intimate.

Because the three girls like boats and ships (thus the band's name), when they started selecting songs and creating new songs for the album, the theme naturally turned towards the ocean. There's a song about sirens, a song about a sailor, a song about a sailor's lover left on the shore... and even a song about communication using island-and-sea metaphors.

All songs are original, except for a traditional Irish tune sandwiched between an original instrumental in, "Bowsprit Game." (Think of drunken sailors daring each other to dangerous games that involve the bowsprit of the ship.)


released December 2012
Recorded, mixed and mastered by Yasuhiro Tamura at Recording Studio SOUNDTAM. Except track 11, recorded at HiFi Cafe by Daisuke Nakai, mixed and mastered by Daisuke Nakai. All in Japan.
Produced by Sara Kohno and Pirates Canoe (the girls).
