Keaton Henson // Healah Dancing

I was like “oh cool, new keaton henson. I guess it would be interesting to hear some new acoustic guitar cute love-y sap songs.”

then my expectations were completely exceeded and I was floating blissfully sad in the ambient baroque bedroom that is Romantic Works

easily in top 5 albums of the year

continually amazed by this record & keaton in general just wow

"So you look for patterns because that’s what humans do to try and make sense of things. In hope of some divine order. And you look in movies and songs and the things that you read for symbols, points and swirls that match your own. But the only real pattern there is, is the one you make when you hold up a mirror. And reflect."
– Iain Thomas, I Wrote This For You

Stork - Alive

Talk of what’s past like its written down
a spine you can only break twice
you’d better be dancing when you walk away
I might just be doing the same

Takmit - Saintseneca

you were a kid somewhere with long hair
drinking in parking lot
you’ve got your car
you’ve got your reasons
you got your favorite restaurant
The flesh is shed eat bread instead
and you’ll never thirst again
While I grow old, you grow wild

a hundred years
standing atop each other’s shoulders
the young lover beneath securities backed i-bankers
swallowing lanterns, searching upward

for the two toned breath at the end of her sentences,
a tower to babal:
the cenotaph of your body in mid-dress,

humanities opened to the nightbrink
for the world once promised —
& the few parts remaining
