    Where A Seated Craft's first album 'The Savage and the Small' contemplated distance and yearning, her new album 'Of Birds' looks at what it means to rebuild a life. At times stark and sparsely arranged, at others vibrant and brimming with colour, 'Of birds' is a musical aviary of orchestral sounds, Alexia's arresting voice binding it all together.

lyrics

such a sun I'd chosen
pulled it from a notion
polished it with prose and
oh how it shone all golden

I guess I got my science wrong
trying to move around a sun
next up I'll think that the earth is round
first comes the ache of dawn
then the birds break out in song
then all we know comes falling down

such a sun
a golden bowl, a molten lung
such emotion
a violent hymn, a pendulum
such work begun
to be unpicked, unstitched, unsewn
a once-sung wonder overthrown
and I alone, alone
yet not struck dumb
