Then every breath made you confess
you did not know what to do with your hands
This is a new side of you
so full of fear
Foxing - Rory
but my hands shake and shudder at the mention / of half written reasons why we’ll only be friends / i swear i’m a good man / so why don’t you love me back?
i’ll always love you ‘cause we grew up together and you helped make me who i am. i just wanted you to know there will be a piece of you in me always, and i’m grateful for that. whatever someone you become, and wherever you are in the world, i’m sending you love. you’re my friend to the end.
Listen: Nai Harvest - Buttercups: The Sheffield lads just keep getting better. With a busy year of dropping the Hold Open My Head EP, and re-issuing their 2013 debut album Whatever, Nai Harvest have unveiled “Buttercups”, a new single taken from their upcoming Flower split EP with Playlounge (available from Dog Knights Productions). It’s yet another step away from the spindly emo which shaped their early stuff, moving towards a gloriously melodic and fuzzy alt-rock sound. It’s the kind of song to make you nostalgic for idyllic summer days on the beach with friends, which never really happened. A whole album of this would probably be the best rock record to come out of the UK in a long while, and the duo are certainly capable of it.
