    Super duper limited edition, 100 only ever to be made (well, 101, because I want one).

    I heart tapes.
    That is all.

    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    This is a super exclusive special colour variant for my beloved Bandcampers - all hail the "GIGFACE"!

    If you follow any of my social channels you'll have seen my gigface pics, and they have a common theme: my English rose complexion, some bright blue eyeshadow, black eyeliner and red lippie. I decided to smush these all together to create this uniquely coloured vinyl.

    Enjoy!

lyrics

I’d like to learn to love this body like you do
Peeling away the skin to uncover this ingenue
Years gone, What a waste
I’m breaking barriers to take my place

I was not my best friend even though I could have been

We’re only here for a while and then we’re not
So let’s see what we can do with the things we’ve got
Living in circles - a powerful mode to break
But I think you’ll find your strength of mind a cause to celebrate

No need for shame, no time for uncertainty
DISOBEY
Cos it’s not the weight of my shape that matters
It’s what I say
Sick of beauty queens
I’ll smash my mirror but I’ll eat my greens

If I knew the things I do now I could have stayed clean

We’re only here for a while and then we’re not
So let’s see what we can do with the things we’ve got
Living in circles - a powerful mode to break
But I think you’ll find your strength of mind a cause to celebrate

We’re only here for a while and then we’re not
So let’s see what we can do with the things we’ve got
Living in circles - a powerful mode to break
But I think you’ll find your strength of mind a cause to celebrate
