about

This is a true story.
I was messed up in Ireland.
In the 300 year old farm house my friend used to rent from a messed up guy who used to spy a bit but had cows and sheep and everything was so green and rich.
There were two storeys.
There were also two stories.

lyrics

Got the ground under my feet. Got the sky over my head. Got a floor under my feet. Got a roof over my head.
Got a ceiling under the floor. Got a ceiling under the roof. Got a room under the ceiling. Got a room under the ceiling.
Got a floor under the room. Got a floor under the room. Got the ground under my feet. Got the ground under my feet.

You come into the room and you lean in close to me and the moon is big and low, hanging just above the trees.
I can see it out the window. I can see us in the window. I can feel it in the room. You say you can feel it too.
And it’s bigger than the moon, like the gravity of stars.
But I don’t know what you want. And you’re fucking with my heart.

In the room under the ceiling, on the floor beneath the floor, you were there but now you’re leaving. I swear I heard the door.
And I fall into the carpet, and I sink through wooden boards. And it’s dark here without moonlight, in the space between the storeys.
And you speed along the highway, but you never drive that far.
Cuz you don’t know what you want, and you’re fucking with my heart.

Got the ground under my feet. Got the sky over my head. Got a floor under my feet. Got a roof over my head.
Got a ceiling under the floor. Got a ceiling under the roof. Got a room under the ceiling. Got a room under the ceiling.
Got a floor under the room. Got a floor under the room. Got the ground under my feet. Got the ground under my feet.

about

Selina Martin Toronto, Ontario

This France-based Canadian songwriter fuses organic instrumentation, samples, field recordings, physical synths as well as plug-ins plus vocal improvisation in a buoyant expansion of genres that could be described as electro-post-rock, or singer-songwriter art-pop. It doesn’t sound like anything you’ve heard before, yet there are hooks in almost every song. ... more
