about

AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY ON FUSION RECORDS UK via usual online outlets. OUT JULY 17.

www.fusionrecords.net


'Deepfleshred' is an exclusive collection of weird warped - and extremely - wonky songs of love, loss and longing. Also, serving as an exploration of the female voice and feminine ambient textures. Not all from a woman's perspective and deceptively dark and disturbing in subject matter. These are challenging narratives, murder ballads, animal experiments into maternal deprivation, loss of innocence, grief. notably, the avant-pop of the tracks featuring Chinese noisenik Yikii Tong and the dark squelchscape of 'The History of Swaying' (co-written with Finnish slam-poet Hanna Yli-Tepsa), the sinewy trip hop of 'Harlow's Monkeys', and the gauzy electro-pop of 'Tactile' and 'Last Ghost Story'. We meet in the Venn intersection where sax, singing saws, theremins and prepared piano reside.

Track Name: The History of Swaying (feat. Hanna Yli-Tepsa)
he
he´s the one who catches all the birds
while the wind blows
with his endless nurturing
with his arms
his rocking shelter
his tone
brings the the burning bubbling soul
of the earth
to life
in his whisper
dances the soil
its earth loving dance
and they all gather around him
when the water falls through his fingers
he stretches his branches
and they all breathe
together.

he
he´s the king of the plants
beside me
his wisdom stands (x2)

day after day
we sway
through the eternal play
day after day after day
we sway.

he's the king of the plants.
yey.
Track Name: 'z' {The Last Ghost Story} (feat. Jill Beaulieu)
i think it's october
but i can't be sure
the days are much greyer
than those gone before.

god never spoke
told no stories at all
soon all the trees in the world
will fall.

i created my ghosts
from drinking the rain
i choke back the tears, but
they come all the same.

through gauze, the world seeps
in colour and bloom
load that last shell
i had saved
just for you.

Track Name: White Mice in a Red Maze (feat. Kami Hall)
somewhere the future was passed
and the past was yet to come
in another world i wasn't there
who would care at what we'd done
we eat our hair and sleep on bones
no-one knows what we go through
runways that lead either way
rewarded days for what i choose

reeling, we needed to stop
short, sharp shocks
in the red maze.
white mice in a red maze.

stolen, these moments for you
precious few in the olive grove
raised to be human again
experiments without control
secretly, we passed the key
in a kiss, just like kids
magically whisked me away
to a place in which to fit

some shot was needed to start up my heart
white mice in a red maze
white mice in a red maze

elsewhere
all knowing unchecked
i suspect i might survive
mortal and licking our wounds
far too soon to call it time

somehow we needed to stop all the clocks
tick-tock.
in the red maze.
white mice in a red maze.
