Today is Addie’s birthday. Giving matching tattoo presents to each other to celebrate being pisces, being sisters. We wrote this track together over skype when I was living away from home for the first time. Still the greatest thing I’ve ever worked on.
~*~i am not pretty. i am not beautiful. i am as radiant as the sun.~*~
Yohuna - “Badges”
So beautiful. Excited for this compilation vinyl out on Orchid Tapes soon.
this is too much ~ wow <3
came up with this melody while humming with liz pelly in london. emily reo made the beat for this track. lyrics for the chorus inspired by faye orlove's portrait of katniss everdeen. (girlpower girl love sisterhood friendship bestfriends forever.) here are the lyrics:
i’ll love you when it snows in may
when i’ve found a job i can keep
you’ll listen to me when it rains
i’m not pretty, i’m not nice
i am radiating light, i am radiating
i spent two years sweeping tide,
i am radiating light, i am fire in your side
i’ll soften away how i hear
with his shadow over each night
you’ll tell me not even a kiss
nothing will make it fair
when i’ve found a place i can stay
you’ll listen to me each new year
