  • [Ren] I’m putting together a Rough Trade Edition, which collects together some of the in-betweens and afterthoughts from the record. I’ve been writing it at the same time as physically cutting and stitching the album artwork - writing in and out of the lyrics - using cutting and stitching as a way of thinking about stuff like community, building solidarity, surviving precarity, resisting perfectionism, gender and craft, emotional labour and the environment. It’s kind of like how I speak in between songs on stage, but in writing. Right now it's only available to preorder via Bandcamp

about

This one’s about how weird nations are - a way of organising societies on the basis of where people happen to be born, that is rooted in our collective imagination. Its also about a sense of uneasiness and questioning what you know. What would happen if everyone stopped thinking about themselves as whatever nationality? Can we imagine ourselves differently? If we destabilised the idea of nations would it take the wind out the sails of the rising nationalist sentiment that’s fuelling the far right?

The spoken lyrics reference an art project I do sometimes, where people are invited to cut up flags and stitch them into new forms. This project is how I started thinking more about the idea of cutting and stitching, which is now the album name.

lyrics

Notion of nation starts to leak
Notion of nation
The centre’s warm
The edges bleed
Notion of nation

Cut the shapes
Out of the flag
Swap them switch them
Patch and stitch them
Hoist that rag

chorus

I can’t keep up
I can’t get away
I can’t make
Sense
Or let go of it
I can’t reach them
I can’t get away
I can’t make sense
Or let go of it

Wake up from a beautiful dream
That’s all you’ve ever known
Can’t shake away the feeling
That tells you something’s wrong

No no notion of nation
No no love for a nation
