about

Fragile States.

The first new solo material from Lloyd since her acclaimed second album Magnetic North, released in 2012, and collects material drawn from several different recording sessions between 2013–2015.

The six songs reflect the variety of circumstances in which they were recorded, with the first three songs based on guitar and the others, including the eight-minute “Tunnel Music”, on piano.

Lloyd describes Fragile States as “basically a collection of things recorded over the last couple of years that were never really going to be anything, until they came together.

“They were just random recording sessions. They all had a purpose, but there was never a thread.” until now.

The results are a warm and beautiful collection of songs, by turns eerie, meditative and moody, which fans of Screamfeeder and Big Star’s 3rd alike should love. by Andrew Stafford

Track Name: Goodnight My Love
Goodnight my love,
I’ll be home soon.
Goodnight my love,
Cyanide for your sweet tooth.

I am trembling for your earthquake.
Cinnamon for your tea cake.

I am sleeping on your breath,
Your temperament,
Musk and peppermint.

Musk and peppermint.

A little death, a little nutmeg.
Track Name: Scene of the Crime
You look away and you step aside,
Is this the sign of the times?
You step away and you look inside,
Is this the sign of the times?

You touch my skin and our worlds collide,
is this scene of the crime?
You touch my world and our skin collides,
Is this the sign of the times, the scene of the crime?
is this scene of the crime?

You say stop I say go.
I don’t know who to follow,
I don’t know……
Track Name: Paradigms
Here lies a little piece of me and the little bits combined make me whole
Here lies a little piece of you and the little bits combined make you whole.
And the sentences and signs, and the pretences and lies.

Paradigms, the patterns in our lives,
And the scenes that weaves the stories that been told.
And the signs mark the turns along the way
And the it’s where we find ourselves, is where we are.

And the sentences and signs, the pretences and lies.

This line has been modified and crossed,
Removed, completely lost many times.
But it’s sad in the silence and the way,
that the parts we have to play never change.
And this little piece of you and this little piece of me will eventually cease to be.
Cease to be.
Track Name: The Undertow
A heart’s surrender, a distant land.
Skin so tender, against the burning sand.
A mother’s daughter, this he knows.
Steady water, the undertow.

Lungs are filling, the rising tide
The spirits willing, the will subsides.
A heart’s asylum, the bitter cold.
Truth is tied in, knots, that never unfold.

Hear no, see no, speak no evil,
Ask not, tell no lies.
Track Name: Nothing Remained
I woke up and nothing had remained,
In a single night we lived and died
But nothing else had changed.

For days and weeks I could not be found
I walked forever questioning
What no one ever asked, what no one ever said.

The years that followed, nothing ever changed
The fate of nature took it’s course,
No longer a body just a name,
Just a memory all the same.
