Miff Morris I feel within this album there is a wonderful depth to the intensity of each aspect that is being projected across. I pick up on the sway between deeply melancholic, spacey detached; despair, aggressively manic and euphoric.There is so much beauty locked within the haunting vocals and gorgeous acoustic/ electric guitar melodies and i love the contrast between darkness of desperation filtered through the hopeful determination of light. A magnificent brave album which i absoutely love. Favorite track: The Most Perfect Thing.

about

A follow up album to 'I Went Outside, I could Hear The Houses Breathing, They Were Alive'

This album is everything I intended the first album to be. It is heavier, gloomier, more experimental, and instead of focusing on the bittersweet and potentially poetic aspects of depression, this album focuses on the inescapable, thrashing desperation of various mental illnesses.

Once again, in this album I attempt to fuse, dark ambient, shoegaze and post-rock. This time with a bigger emphasis on gloom and lo-fi production.

All purchases of this album will come with a bonus package which includes artwork, diary extracts and poetry.

Track Name: Love As You Are
Love as you are
Track Name: The Most Perfect Thing
I'm back
from the
living dead
and I'll
cut my hair
and I'll
cut myself

I'll curl
my
arms and legs
Into
my chest
and I'll
I'll rest while I can

I'll be damned if I
get dressed today
I will rot away

I'm a long lost cause
Don't pick me up when I fall

I'll dance
in a
dark room
and I'll
spin around
and I'll
I'll sing to myself

I'll breath
my
last breath
and I'll
lie around
and I'll
I'll cry myself to death

I'm a long lost cause
Don't pick me up when I fall
Track Name: Winter Destroy Me
Touch my cold heart with your warm hands
force-feed me love, scratch at my skin
and it was just a bad dream
and nothing is real and I’m just staring at a screen

A hole in my mind to let the secrets through
and the stars pour out and they drown you
Track Name: Nothing Is Real
I’ll isolate myself
I still hate myself
I’m out of time

I tried to kill myself
To become some one else
I’m out of line

And you’ve got all the love in the world inside you

Am I not really here?
The answer’s not quite clear
I’m out of touch

And you’ve got all the love in the world inside you
