Underwater 03:17
underwater breathing exercise breathing deep, feet hung low and i tumble into a nest, a willow tree and you are the arms are the arms, are the nest we say yes, i've been waiting waiting and finding we are otherwise collecting dust on a book we thought we knew everything eventually becomes city of two waking by a light through the blinds, clementine toes are spreading, inventing spring look underneath the lilies of june would they bloom if i breathed in your lungs and kept asking? asking for always we are otherwise collecting dust on a book we thought we knew everything eventually becomes
2.
Palms 03:06
speak softly, while bones inflate my body, my body retrace all the features you erased, you erased noise inside a heavy light echoing the words i thought i thought i lost rearrange the pieces falling into place, into place the history your palms gave me a map to see, map to sea noise inside a heavy light glowing through a cloudless night collide, and still remain remain, remain
3.
fading slowly, let it happen as it may myth or memory? depends on time of day no comfort in the silence out of the unknown take anything at all and claim it as your own patient and pure, a love that felt so new obscured from me that i've been changing you no comfort in the silence out of the unknown take anything at all and claim it as your own
4.
Until 03:00
the sky allowed a sign, if only slightly out of reach the moon is teaching me, showing me how to speak simply if only i knew, if only i knew find treasure in the dirt, a shape you almost recognize the swelling tides emerge, unfolding until you can see clearly becoming anew, becoming anew
5.
holding your breath for days with no end in sight you recall everyone you once knew there is a trail out back that takes you far away and if you leave, will i still be whole? promise to stay as long as it feels like home pearls look like poison from your point of view feeling like bees rummaging through honey you thought was safe trembling once again, your hands gave you away and if you leave, will i still be whole? promise to stay as long as it feels like home

about

"For a debut built on heartbreak, Blind Contour is remarkably structured. Decoration Day invite you into a small world where the shattered pieces of a broken heart fall like rain and eventually lead to flowers."
- Grayowl Point

"Decoration Day’s music is complex and anything but predictable. [...] Their music brings to mind the likes of Stephanie Dosen or Bowerbirds, in its delicate modern take on more traditional folk origins."
- For the Rabbits

"The subtlest hint of vibraphone and bass clarinet wrapped around my consciousness like tendrils on a vine... 'Until' is the kind of song that triggers all your senses at once."
- DOMINIONATED

"Utilising an array of acoustic instruments, the band create bright arrangements tinged with heartbreak, Mara Nesrallah’s vocals rising through it all with a kind of relaxed regret, fierce feelings as voiced from a late night hotel lounge, where the light is low and drink allows a certain romance to creep into the fabric of things."
- Various Small Flames
