about

“I had all these unexplained symptoms/feelings. In an age of extreme anxiety throughout the world, it can be pretty therapeutic to sing/shout about it.” - McLaughlin creates a world to explore and discuss anxiety. “...just talking to friends about what’s going on is so beneficial, although it’s daunting taking that first step.”

Andy Monaghan (Frightened Rabbit, Monohands Records) produced the track in which they lean into the long form melancholy folk world to create an ever evolving 6 minute celebration of life, eventually lead by a flute. It touches upon the realms of Animal Collective, Beck and The Waterboys.

lyrics

Fear
I’m still standing here!
Hold in every day

And joy
Joy surrounds
Me and you

I was howlin’
Saw me cowlin’ now and then
Shaken broken
Wake and hope there’s nothing left to mend

Alone
A wolf in the woods
Tree falls down

To think
That you’re my handful
Shields the wind

I was howlin’
Saw me cowlin’ now and then
Shaken broken
Wake and hope there’s nothing left to mend

I’m lost
On my own
Mind when you see me fade

The cost
Of being alone
No one here when I’m afraid

I was howlin’
Saw me cowlin’ now and then
Shaken broken
Wake and hope there’s nothing left to mend

Walking past
Other people
How do you breathe?

Oh, I don’t think I
Want to leave here and work it out myself

I was howlin’
Saw me cowlin’ now and then
Shaken broken
Wake and hope there’s nothing left to mend

I was howlin’
Saw me cowlin’ now and then
Shaken broken
Wake and hope there’s nothing left to mend
