New Single from forthcoming EP


Black air came a-drifting
Across the bay into the throne
The linesmen’s sights were shifting
Yeah, I was drinking all alone

And you were there

Poppies, maggots, maladies
In the dark and incomplete
A hundred small town melodies
Yeah, they were rising from the street

And you were there

Across a mirrored galaxy
The stars moved out of place
A million burning effigies
Yeah, they were running outta space

And you were there

"A supremely delicate and precise feel for the hearing Cat Power at her very best.“ - The AU Review

“She sounds like the devil convincing you to sell your soul."
– Tone Deaf
