Babcia 03:07
Nobody knows just where they go, just where they go (x2) In her cold yellow hands In the Church’s spire She is lost, she is lost In the tree’s silent song As the ashes scatter He is gone, he is gone. Nobody knows just where they go, just where they go Everyone dreams but no-one sees just where they go In her cold yellow hands In the Church’s spire She is lost, she is lost In the tree’s silent song As the ashes scatter He is gone, he is gone. Dim the face’s fire For the loud world’s end (x2)

He sailed forth Into her skin Recklessly The night grows dim The fields he wrote In singing throat To grab her heart Have all but choked Invisible, the stars cry out loud To reach her face Their brightness lost through her disgrace The listless waves Bereaving now Her limbs made numb by him She sweated music from every pore And the four corners of the room bent backwards and begged for more She sweated music from every pore And the four corners of the room bent backwards and begged for more She sweated music from every pore And the four corners of the world bent backwards in writhing awe She sweated music from every pore And the four corners of the world bent backwards in writhing awe

Innocence 04:15
Feel the rain, to heal this pain, you never were complete Wet your face, your bloodied lace dress fallen at your feet. Innocence Was lost tonight This fragile girl, she runs wild She’s quenched her first magnetic thirst She’s scared, she’s stunned This fragile girl’s undone No man will do No man but you No man ever spoke the truth None as true as you There he stands Hypnotic man The world a blazing carnival, is bursting out of him His smiles performed In cryptic rhyme She’s bright, she’s proud Enchanted now No longer hides from him Oh she sings, she flies, she plays, she wins, She loves she lives Made powerful by him No man will do No man but you No man ever spoke the truth None as true as you No man, ever spoke The truth, the truth, No man ever spoke the truth, the truth, the truth...

First Breath 02:29
Swallow the valleys that followed you here Deep from the dark iron ore in the year of all births In the tear of her spiralling girth, in that manifold space where wet love trodden soil marked your skin, with a trace of that burn where the ore melted first in the hearts of the lovers who burst There you are, spun out zestuous ode to the stars! There you are wasting breath counting scars (x2) There you are spun out zestuous ode to the stars (x3) There you are wasting breath counting scars. There you are! There you are There you are, there you are... Retrace the scars upon your arms, undress your sparkling carbon mask, even your charms disgrace the stars.

about

Receiving airplay on BBC Radio 3's show for experimental new music: The Late Junction-Verity Sharpe- Zosia's debut EP was described as 'wonderfully captivating and engrossing…. full of great depth, power and integrity. Haunting vocals, beguiling…unique.. The music glides between the stark and melancholic to the sprightly and engaging, all magnificently captured.” (Bob Mulvey- The Progressive Aspect)

Highly evocative and atmospheric, the songs blend contemporary classical, folk and contemporary singer-songwriter styles, exploring themes of grief, love, loss, brith and relationships.
