Until 02:30
I can’t begin Until I return The flickering fires at my feet Light up the street and the glances of desire My boy slips away The warmest dark Swallows my heart My boy slips away Never seen again Beautiful city within I can’t begin Until I return

Sun burning morning The grass has turned to yellow straw The earth is dry dust full of hidden thorns Makes my feet sore But I make my own way To the overgrown orchard Bindweed in curious shapes In the deep shade, the rusty edge of a door Engines, held together with vines With my small hands I can repair what I find Sleeping afternoon Black oil on my skin The bees suck the golden glue And no-one can feed on me Everything here is under my rule In the overgrown orchard Bindweed in curious shapes In the deep shade, the shine of copper and chrome Engines, coming out from the vines My ingenious devices ready to find

Ballooniad 03:21
We’d been waiting for the right day for weeks Weighed down by our plans By our doubt But here it is The perfect evening And here we are Under a cloud In a silk shroud About to rise The cliffs are leaving us The sea silver far below And the air is hilarious to us I don’t know quite how we got here But here we are Under a cloud In a silk shroud About to rise Let’s throw out all the heavy stuff Let’s go higher Let’s follow the golden moon

Big tree engine In the middle of the city Slowly turning us around Big leaves Deep roots Gently turning us around Back to the ground In our lethal dream

May 03:49
She waits here Year after year Hoping this time It will be different Soon everything will change But year after year On the first of May In the hour before the day breaks Her heart aches For the borders and boundaries He used to bring All this energy put into love It’s the only thing she believes in Soon he’ll see And everything will change Everything about her will be new In the hours before the day breaks As she looks into his face He sees the wine on the table The white lilies The earth she moved her hands through Soon Soon everything will change

Mon coeur Mon coeur I want to honour you I want to But how can I? All you’ve seen and all you’ve heard You’ve seen it all Don’t you feel it all? So old What have you seen? My heart

about

A set of daydreams that form a miniature B-side to the album ‘Nights Bright Days’, this is a collection of six songs including the piano ballad ‘May’ and the dream-folk synth/harp reverie for the oldest tree in Kew Gardens ‘Old Tree, Mon Coeur’ that garnered Chloë Soundclouder of the Day earlier in 2014 ‘Dreamy voice… A magical atmospheric song’.

The new songs on this EP include ‘Ballooniad’ inspired by tales of the early Balloonists lifting off from coastal cliffs, a dreamily buoyant track tethered to a circling bass and ‘Big Tree Engine’ a  minimalist reflection centred around deep jazz-inflected piano chords inspired by an ancient tree in central London.
