rileyreadsnow Really suprised that this EP doen't appear in more collections.
It's an EP you keep coming back to, so soothing.
Minimal, and grand at the same time.

If you loved iamthemorning's latest EP, you might want to check this out as well. Favorite track: Mɪʀʀᴏʀ Mɪʀʀᴏʀ.

Joseph Beaty This song is so minimal and beautiful. Love the warm organ tones supporting Crystal's amazing voice. A bit biased as the producer of these lovely tunes but this song just gets me every time. Favorite track: Dᴀᴍᴏᴄʟᴇs.

Count P. Obviously its a little bit far away from my taste, at first glance... Yet something in this EP bring me back to itself countless times. And I still crave for a little more from the 'mirror mirror'... Favorite track: Mɪʀʀᴏʀ Mɪʀʀᴏʀ.

Every waking moment is a gift, One thread from chaos, time’s unravelling in grand display. Don’t know where I’m going, but I know It’s a one-way train. This Sword of Damocles hangs, And I’m just counting the moments as they pass away. The blade shines silvery in all the light above me. God, I hope there’s not a breeze today. Secrets are presents that can’t be destroyed. They’ll stick with you and me forever and ever. You’ll walk away with that smirk on your face, Knowing what you know was mine. This Sword of Damocles hangs, And I’m just counting the moments as they pass away. The blade shines silvery in all the light above me. God, I hope there’s not a breeze today. Ooo—Ooo— Ooo—Ooo— Mercy, mercy, mystery. I’m on my knees imploring Of gravity— This Sword of Damocles hangs, And I’m just counting the moments as they pass away. The blade shines silvery in all the light above me. God, I hope there’s not a breeze today. Ooo—Ooo— Ooo—Ooo—

Have you found what you’re looking for In the space that you hold? A distance you sow ‘round your core To gather comfort from the cold. I can’t remember When this came to be, But it feels like December in your arms. . . .In your arms. Push away and down and over now, ‘Cause you came into the world betrayed. Can’t rely on anyone anyhow, And all the best things they come to fade. Don’t you remember You’re right here with me? Well it feels like December in your arms. . . .In your arms. Put on my best Aphrodite, But Pandora is all you can see. It’s the fear that you are breakable, It’s the feeling that you’ll cave, That makes your heart seem so unshakable, But building walls don’t make you brave. Try to remember How this used to be. ‘Cause it feels like December in your arms. . . .In your arms. . . .In your arms. . . .In your arms.

Buried and hidden, Stripped away. Somewhere there is solace, But it doesn’t come today. There’s something you’re withholding, It should drive us apart. It pulls me closer in To see your mystery, a work of art. I’ll follow, I’ll follow, I’ll follow your trail of crumbs. Seeking in the dark, Heavy on your heart. I’ll follow, I’ll follow, I’ll follow your trail of crumbs. To where you’ve dug your hole, Lay down on your soul Like a hungry ghost, Hungry ghost. Maybe it’s my karma, Maybe it’s my fate. You longed for me to keep you, The need realized too late. Words lost on the moment, Entanglement with grace, A brief amalgamation, The path we made for just a taste. I’ll follow, I’ll follow, I’ll follow your trail of crumbs. Seeking in the dark, Heavy on your heart. I’ll follow, I’ll follow, I’ll follow your trail of crumbs. To where you’ve dug your hole, Lay down on your soul Like a hungry ghost, Hungry ghost. Like a hungry ghost. Hungry ghost, Like a hungry ghost.

Let me show you, scryer, Let me give you what you need. I will take you to your shadow, You will make me bleed. Cold as glass, unbroken, And reflective too. When you look at me, my darling, All you see is you. “Mirror mirror on the wall, Time to say my name.” You like to have me hanging around Just for your own gain. You’ll never look to what’s beyond the surface. You’ll never feel this dance holistically. That’s okay, because I’m not quite what you’re thinking. You are the monster, but my love, I am the sea. You are the monster, but my love, I am the sea.

Come to love in the fading light, A blanket sea below the ice. We thaw, in time, a frozen word Stored in the winter’s heart. Came to feed the vein, the hive, A broken mirror, fragmented light. That thing, it stirs from within the deep Stored in the winter’s heart. 'Round and 'round we spiral down Through the years the mess we made. That perfect place in time and space... It’s all we have to hold. Come to tell a tale that’s ours, Through all the gates, finish to start. What lies before is a riddle now Stored in the winter’s heart. How long can we go Raking silence with each step, Making circles in the snow, Until these traces melt? 'Round and 'round we spiral down Through the years the mess we made. That perfect place in time and space… It’s all we have to hold. It’s all we have to hold.

about

A 5-song mini concept album that explores the interpersonal aspect of our humanity using reference to mythology and fable as the common thread— How we relate to each other and the stories we have created throughout history to try to understand it all.
