It’s almost 2am and all I can think about is all the things I’m too scared to tell you. I’m a better person for having known you. Your arms felt like the safest place in the world. Thank you for everything - For kissing my sad eyes, listening to all my sooking, the fights we had, fixing my hair, pretending to care about quantum mechanics and English literature, not waking me when I stole the sheets, waking me when I was running late - Everything. I am someone you are proud of because of everything we shared. All the things you taught me. Forever grateful and in debt to your friendship. I love you.
This year has been the most confronting, difficult and emotionally draining year of my life. I’ve spent so long investing myself and my life in other people. Trying to be the best person for them. The truth is, I’m a wuss. I’m so scared of upsetting people - it kills me. It eats me up whole and I think about it for days on end. It’s taken me a long time to realise but people that constantly bring you down don’t really care about you, they just want you to care about them. Now is the time to focus on myself. Be the person I want to be. Do the things I want to do. No more excuses.
This has taken quite a fair bit of time to finally come into fruition but my band Stone Hearts has released what could be considered our “debut” EP I guess. 6 songs that I’m (surprisingly) not sick of after about a year of playing them. Anyone who has come and seen us in the last year has probably heard all of these songs already but I’m glad to finally get this out for everyone else to hear. Thank you for anyone who has supported us and to Josh Howes at Death’s Grip Records for releasing it on cassette (and for his description of the ep/insight into a confronting experience in his life…..fuck).
Anyway, we are playing with Basement at The Lab on Saturday so if you live in Brisbane and are attending make sure you come out early and see us play the EP in full. Hope you enjoy it :)
