  • Rough Trade Edition by Ren Aldridge

    [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 song explores the difficulty that a lot of men have with expressing their emotions in a healthy way, from both the perspective of the man that’s struggling and a person close to them. It works as a kind of conversation between these two perspectives. This is an important feminist topic both in terms of men’s mental health, as toxic masculinity encourages them to bottle their feelings up in an unhealthy way, arguably contributing to the high suicide rates in men; and in terms of emotional labour, as men who can’t deal with their emotions in a healthy way can be hugely draining for the people close to them, especially women who are typically the ones expected to do this emotional work.

lyrics

I want to talk in tongues, speak right as I feel
His mood fills entire rooms
Untangle a toxic youth
Swells to fill the space I leave it
Put my heart in place, synch up to its tune
I don’t know how to move round it
Speak in granted space, I want to tell the truth
Want to tell the truth
The truth is locked behind our teeth
I see you gritting your teeth
Its secret ink on see-through sheets
I feel you sweat into the sheets
Everybody knows whats wrong
I think that I know whats wrong
Let’s break the pattern and overcome
Same old pattern same old song

We thicken up
You fall too fast
On lower heat
I can’t catch you all
We play it safe
I can’t catch you all
Embrace retreat
You fall too fast
We’ve come to terms
I can’t catch you all
We walk the walk
No please don’t make us talk
Can we please fucking talk
