I just wanna be able to sing like the birds, not worrying who hears or what they think


your music is sensual, dark and languid
mysterious and sexy, hypnotic and sultry
the slow tempo and rumbling bass drums are a heavenly mix
that makes me drift away to another world
I close my eyes and let the forlorn echoes immerse me
in a sea of falsetto vocals and stuttering percussion

your music is enigmatic, puzzling and seductive
Pacifying and troubling, calming and cinematic
your champagne crooning is a movie in itself
it tells me tales of a gloomy, sex-filled hangover existence
and somehow it connects to the depths of my soul
even tho I've never experienced it

Narcotised slow jams with samples of rock and punk
transports me to a dream world
your subtly crafted harmonies and beats are celestial
and your lyrics are painkillers
that numbs the wounds in my soul

your voice is R&B but your lyrics are dirty rap
you take such vile words and turn them into something so beautiful
and I adore that
