about

A song about the explosive chemistry of a short lived romance and the first single from the forthcoming debut EP of the same name out on 18 March 2016.

lyrics

Verse 1
We lived one summer but we left alone
We loved each other just to keep our own hearts beating, our own hearts beating
Came together just to fall apart
Find a remedy to fix our broken hearts, that won’t stop bleeding

Pre chorus
Science, science won’t mend it - hope won’t befriend it
Peace, peace won’t calm it down
There’s a need, a need within - something deep within us
A child that finds its own way home

Chorus
Those days are running round my head
Those days are running round my head
Those days are running round my head
Caught up with something else instead
Those days are running round my head
Those days are running round my head
Those days are running round my head
When all we learned was to play dead

Verse 2
Tried to fight it but we both gave in
Can’t remember what might have been for certain, it’s never certain
Play the part but don’t forget the game
Make mistakes just to do it all again, without ever learning

Pre chorus again

Chorus again

about

Rachel Myall London, UK

“beautifully emotional"
Q Magazine.

London-based singer/songwriter - who unusually doesn't write music or play any instruments - combining wistful vocals with strings, piano, percussion and the occasional trumpet to tell lyrical tales of love and loss.

I call it melancholy folk blues, influenced by a diverse range of artists from Bob Dylan and Tim Buckley to Laura Marling and Dolly Parton.
