Right By You 02:58
Two days in already starting to die tried every window, full and partial sunlight tried to read the leaves, are you a cactus or a tree do you need a little desert, would you rather it be raining I just wanna do right by you Show me how to tell me what you need you’re a mystery, I am too I just wanna do right you In the free box at the bargain store I found you there’s no hiding tailored lines, at that moment I knew little frayed around the sleeves, didn’t get your stitch in time the tag said dry clean only but you’re holding up just fine I just wanna do right by you Show me how to tell me what you need you’re a mystery, I am too I just wanna do right you Box said fragile, assembly required on the back and the parts arrived in tiny plastic bags read it all a thousand times, figured out what they were for just a could screws left over on the living room floor I just wanna do right by you Show me how to tell me what you need you’re a mystery, I am too I just wanna do right you

I’d like to get some good rest in before I die I’d like to take a left turn and not look for traffic on my right if you don’t feel it now do you feel anything at all? I’ll call you by your old name, call you whatever you want I am them, I’m one of them, and so are you by now you’ve scraped up every bit of pleasure that you wanted to here’s a metaphor, here’s a bible verse I met the sliding doors version of myself I’ve never met anybody else today I heard your singing voice in every sound you never knew to push your luck, you only took what you’re allowed tell your old house you forgive it now, burnt by parliaments and celadons you won’t return until you’re really gone

Glad to hear your brother’s doing alright a little lonely but I’m mostly fine thanks for askin, how’s the baby, not much lately Sometimes it sparks, keeps time in the dark mostly just echoes off walls sometimes I think it can’t outrun me some days it swallows me whole. Pullin it apart before it hits the floor am I just tall enough to touch the stove waiting for the sound of something to sound like somethin you already know Sometimes it sparks, keeps time in the dark mostly just echoes off walls sometimes I think it can’t outrun me somedays it swallows me whole A light a call a letter, or just louder than I realized sometimes I think it can’t outrun me somedays it swallows me whole

Idaho-Dakota 02:23
They’re asking you “where are you from? No, where are you really-really from?” You say Ohio You say Nevada Haven’t you given them enough Count it slowly now you don’t owe anyone Anymore, you’re on your own But I draw you closer I draw you taller than you really are I draw a border between Idaho and Dakota I’m just as shocked as anybody else could be At every time you open up your perfect teeth And say “hello,” you say “how are ya?” But I draw you closer I draw you taller than you really are I draw a border between Idaho and Dakota You’re asking me what do I want You ask so kindly what do I want I say I don’t know what did I ask for? And you call me over You pull me forward We’re on the border, the border And we let in whoever we want I draw you closer I draw you taller than you really are I draw a border, a border Between Idaho and Dakota

Violet 03:48
waking up in the night to a tap at your window cutting light of the law they’re not here to help you well i wouldn’t give em shit, but it sounds like you did mmmm whatever you’re burning off whatever you’re burning through houses friends and jobs there’s something better I know you’ll get to taught me all of their names violet sage and yarrow but they change all the time so you let em go well the patterns I see they’re not the same in me mmmm whatever you’re burning off whatever you’re burning through houses friends and jobs there’s something better I know you’ll get to rested in clay with a wreath on your head but you braided those branches till your fingers bled well I don’t care what they say, I don’t care what they said whatever you’re burning off whatever you’re burning through houses friends and jobs there’s something better I know you’ll get to

LIMITED EDITION CD'S AVAILABLE AT WWW.SONCANCIONES.COM

A farm in the middle of nowhere. Sixty Spanish horses. And two songwriters who do not know each other, strangers with the same destiny... The critically acclaimed songwriters Karima Walker (Tucson, USA) and Katy Kirby (Nashville, USA) were dropped in a retirement home for old horses by the Barcelona based label Son Canciones. They were given one week to get to know each other and write and record five new songs.

After the success of the four previous "Among Horses" releases, Karima Walker & Katy Kirby's EP seeks to find its place in the record collection of everyone who loves unhurried music and lo-fi indie folk for a lazy day in the sun.

Only solar power was used in the making of this EP. The songs were recorded mostly in one take and without special effects. Straight from the soil into your headphones.


Previous Among Horses releases featured Withered Hand-A Singer Of Songs, Zoe Boekbinder-Dustin Hamman, Haley Heynderickx-Max García Conover & Lydia Cole-Hailey Beavis.
