quailman Just stunning. Absolutely stunning, especially on repeat listens to specific tracks. Entire worlds within these songs. "You're better with it" / "Past Life" seem to go together as a double track and have jumped out as my favorite so far. Other reviews are also right to say that "Secrets" could be the strongest-favorite here; but "Run" at the tail of the album has that potential too. Congratulations to the artist on bottling such rich musical material; seems to be on tap for her on demand. Favorite track: Past Life.

devonwadegranmo Major good vibes, layers of stoney and funky keys, infectious rhythms, powerhouse vocals. Siren and The Sea is the real fucking deal. This album rules! Favorite track: Way Out.

Kyle Acheson Washy and vibrant, the songs on "For Bathing" hit the sweet spot of being compellingly focused tracks outright, while also being tantalizingly atmospheric. I especially love the lyrics and sonic journey of "Secrets". Do yourself a favor: draw a bath, light a candle, play this album on some good speakers (or just amplify your phone by resting it in the sink) and soak in the good vibes with "For Bathing". Favorite track: Secrets.

I am the queen of misdirection Of averting your attention Away away away... They say I’m prone to condescension Well I just think I know the direction Luckily, it's not hard to be a woman… For you. And I want to believe that I can climb a mountain And it's all that I want to finally feel grounded And I want to believe that I have found the fountain of youth I’m not that close to imperfection And every while I lose my direction Luckily, I’m not here to be a woman… For you. And I want to believe that I can climb a mountain And it's all that I want to finally feel grounded And I want to believe that I have found the fountain of youth Nothing can stand in my way.

Secrets 04:14
Maybe I have Secrets Better than reality Or maybe I just like the way it feels To let them roll around in me Maybe I should meet you And let you throw your salt at me Cus I am easily persuaded Or so I’ll let you think We can’t be alone without speaking of what went wrong And maybe I should sew my mouth up until no words come out at all and We can’t be alone without speaking of what went wrong And maybe I should sew my mouth up until no words come out at all Maybe it's a Secret That you weren’t letting go So I should take apart my skin Because I didn’t let you know Maybe it's appearing In every corner of the room Just so you’ll throw your hands up and Admit the atmosphere was changing too We can’t be alone without speaking of what went wrong And maybe I should sew my mouth up until no words come out at all We can’t be alone without speaking of what went wrong And maybe I should sew my mouth up maybe I should let it all out We can’t be alone without speaking of what went wrong Maybe I should sew my mouth up maybe I should let it all out We can’t be alone without speaking of what went wrong And maybe I should sew my mouth up until no words come out at all

A Dream 03:13
I couldn’t wait in the car To endlessly watch this go farther than you want this to Do I just stay or move? You know I’ve been testing You know I’ve been asking you not run away to the beat of the task at hand No one expects you to always relax, man It's not like I left you to be my own person If I had and if I had and if I had and if I had a mirror… If I had and if I had and if I had and if I had a mirror…

Memories 03:15
In some ways it's easier to stare directly at the sun And let it burn away the memory of our love This part we knew would end up stories in the wind We won’t pretend it's true But If I even try to let you in… And I can feel you watching, and I don’t want your love And I can feel you watching, and I don’t want your love.. In some ways it is easier to watch it all come undone Than let it fade away an ember in the sun And I can feel you watching, and I don’t want your love And I can feel you watching, and I don’t want your love

You’re better with it I stumbled a bit Hiding my words in my obvious performance My talk is wide I should try listening to more of it It's not mine to win, but I’m not sorry I did I followed my heart and my eyes were ahead of it You called me inside and I never regretted it I find if I change my mind I just wait to die with it I find if I close my eyes I can be alright with it I find if I change my mind I just wait to die with it I find if I close my eyes I can be alright with it

Past Life 03:13
What’s there to say? You were always so affected anyway I couldn’t bear to watch you walk away But if another crow falls I don’t know where we’ll evolve I just hope it is far away From the weight we’ve dissolved I hope you get it all, I hope you let it fall I think it's true, If you open your eyes you can see I follow you Don’t look at them just look at me, I follow you If you open your eyes you could see I follow you Maybe we’re stuck in a past life Till we learn why we came here Maybe we finally found it And we don't want to stay here Maybe we're stuck in a past life Stuck in a past life Maybe we’re stuck in a past life I follow, I follow If you open your eyes you could see I follow you Don’t look at them, just look at me, I follow you Maybe we’re stuck in a past life Till we learn why we came here Maybe we finally found it And we don't want to stay here Maybe we're stuck in a past life Till we learn how why we follow Maybe we finally found it And we’ll just move on tomorrow Maybe we’re stuck in a past life Till we learn why we came here Maybe we’re stuck in a past life Till we learn why we came here I’ll fly away I’ll fly away if you want me to You know I do and I’ll fly away I’ll fly away if you want me to You know I do Maybe we’re stuck in a past life Till we learn why we came here Maybe we finally found it And we don't want to stay here Maybe we're stuck in a past life Till we learn how why we follow Maybe we finally found it And we’ll just move on tomorrow

Way Out 03:10
You may find it a little inapropro Taking my time Just to feel it To see it To need it To grow And it's not that I am hiding It's not that I am gone... It's just a way out My only way to feel this all over again And by the fact that I am washing my own skin Is complimentary to the state I think I’m in It's just a way out My only way to slip beneath and back to me To finally see the things that I don’t always see To lay my body back and let it breathe And it's always in the middle of a moment That I find myself racing ahead of time It's just a way out My only way to feel this all over again And by the fact that I am washing my own skin Is complimentary to the state I think I’m in It's just a way out My only way to slip beneath and back to me To finally see the things that I don’t always see To lay my body back and let it breathe And it's always in the middle of a moment That I find myself racing ahead of time It’s just a way out

Stranger to me I found you in a waking dream Too loud to speak I knew you’d be mine before we’d meet It's the sound that you make when you think you can’t speak The sharp of your tongue when you’re talking to me Well I can finally see you I can finally feel you won’t you let me near you It's the weight of the room when you’re closing the door Like no ones behind you wanting for more Well I can finally see you I can finally feel you won’t you let me near you Stranger to me I found you in a waking dream Light on your cheek Awake but you can’t feel the weight of me Awake but you can’t feel the weight of me Awake but you can’t feel the weight of me It's the sound that you make when you think you can’t speak The sharp of your tongue when you’re talking to me Well I can finally see you I can finally feel you won’t you let me near you It’s the weight of the room when you’re closing the door Like no ones behind you wanting for more Well I can finally see you I can finally feel you won’t you let me near you You’re looking every single way But to the fire and the flame That keeps me awake and falling forth into the wild with you You’re looking every single way But to the fire and the flame That keeps me awake and falling forth into the wild the into the wild into the wild

Run 03:11
Run! Run if you don’t want to feel the floor You’re leaving reactive And some find attractive I see what you’re looking for I see I see I see Can you run faster than your shadow Does it feel alright to compromise Can you run faster than your shadow Does it feel alright to compromise Run! Can you run faster than you did before Si no tienes passion well why are you asking Asi corre mi amor Asi asi asi Can you run faster than your shadow Does it feel alright to compromise Can you run faster than your shadow Does it feel alright to compromise I see I see I see Asi Asi Asi

about

I started this record during a time of insular self-reflection, healing, and searching for truth in the water. I came out of this journey surrounded by incredible people who inspire me to grow, take big leaps into the unknown, and through love remind me to nurture and water the relationships which I am incredibly honored to have. A huge thank you for the enormous talent and trust from my collaborators and everyone that touched and influenced this record, for diving into these sounds with me and giving them life. A special thank you to JL for continuing to light the fire and the flame. Y lastly, Pachito, por darme la vida. I hope they have a good sound system up there.
