Gloucester Street

July 9, 2018 10:44 PM

Echoey guitars and sparse vocals, a cross between Mazzy Star and Nick Drake. This song is what I was crying about on the tube after Pride in London.

Lyrics:

I am a ghost inside a storm
Clapped by thunder
Static friction
made up of
our social norms

I flooded out
and washed away
down Gloucester street
The city rose
and fell
beneath my feet

I lost my shit
out on Gloucester street
I cried in the eyes
of imminent defeat

I lost my mind
out on Gloucester street
Worn at the edges
like a seed
pushing free

I lost my shit
Out on Gloucester Street.

Beautiful. I love echoey guitars as a rule, but the lyrics and the performance here are really what make it.

Yeah this is nice, like if Mazzy Star were led by Daniel Johnston.
