Waxahatchee was only mentioned to me about a week ago and I can’t stop listening to her, she has a very Cat Power/Regina Spektor voice although she is very unique in her own way.
Swan Dive is by far one of her best songs, the lyrics are somehow simultaneously euphoric and melancholy and beautiful. I suppose the song is simple really, it’s about lovers had and lost, about memories now fading.
“You hold on to the past/ you make yourself miserable/ and I’m ruled by seasons and sadness/ that’s inexplicable/ and we will find a was to be lonely any chance we get.”
Her latest album is called Cerulean Salt and is available to download on Itunes (presumably!).
