drakeygirl They're not a choir, and they're far from disappointing. This is a delicate, haunting, song with a lovely slow build. And they're generously donating all proceeds to the Young Minds charity, so good on 'em.

Track Name: Winter Hill
I drove up the hill to your old house
The sun behind me and in the branches
Green and golden
But it’s the snow I remember.
Came to see you, knees still aching
From the six or seven-hour bus ride
And we stood out
In the courtyard, watching the sky come down.

And the snow
Draped its silences over the following years
And when we awoke
How the thorns had grown.

Another century when I came here
Full of something I thoughtlessly imagined
Made me grown-up
And later wrote off.
And I slept there, on your hard floor
It sounds like something people make up
But I dreamed you
And the twisting corridors to your door.

And today
With my kids in the back, a ridiculous detour
I realised
That I’m dreaming still.

I drove up the hill to your old house
The sun behind me, slowly setting
And I miss you.
Track Name: Winter Hill (stripped down version)

And the snow
Draped its silences over the following years
And when we awoke

Track Name: 2½ Minute Love Song (new album track, live acoustic in rehearsal)
Of all the people I’m not kissing
You’re the person I’m not kissing
the most
Of all the people I’m not missing
You’re the person I’m not missing
the most

You and I
Couldn’t be further from my mind
got my eyes closed all the time

Of all the boyfriends I’m not fighting
Yours is the boyfriend I’m not fighting
the most
Of all the love songs I’m not writing
This is the love song I’m not writing
the most

You and I (you and I)
Couldn’t be further from my mind
got my eyes closed all the time

Of all the people I’m not kissing
You’re the person I’m not kissing
the most
Of all the people I’m not missing
You’re the person I’m not missing
the most.
