But in fact it’s a pattern
Everything I hear will always make me ashen
I know it’s recognizable
But it don’t make no sense at all, oh


This refreshing psych-pop album was recorded almost entirely on acoustic instruments for a quaint, folk-pop effect. The lyrics provide a dark undertone hinting at stories that highly contrast the sound. Showcases the Clarinet as part of a project to learn a new instrument every year.

What to listen to next:

If you liked the brighter, positive sound
If you want another Pop-based album
If you want more of the relaxed 60s style
If you want a different ‘period’ sound
If you prefer the tone of the music to match very dark, intense lyrics
