about

It's coming closer, an arcane cry from your darkest past. "You can't say my name out loud." The final track to release from J. Graves' 'Deathbed' EP is one rooted in mystery, toxicity, addiction admission, and why some things are better left for dead. During a sweet moment of reprieve, Graves writes, "I am a fool for you, I don't know what you do". And as we relive this tense battle, the back and forth, the pleas for help and mercy, and a promise of "never again", we come to find that significant love and loss will remain just that and outlive us all. "I can't believe you could be the weight of my world."

Named for the voice memo number Graves' phone assigned to the rudimentary recording, "331" punctuates the 'Deathbed' EP due out October 10/2/20 on Illumin Records. Only 19 copies of this EP will be cut by hand to vinyl with only 10 copies for sale.

As with all the songs on 'Deathbed', Graves wrote "Time Travel" while releasing her debut LP, 'Marathon', and while her relationship was crumbling around her. The Deathbed EP was engineered and mixed by Elly Swope at Destination Universe! and was mastered by Amy Dragon of Telegraph Audio. This EP was engineered completely by amazing women.

lyrics

331

Lost are the days
When you all went away
You were waiting
For so long
Lost are the days
When you all went away
You were waiting
For so long

You
Can’t say my name
Can’t say my name
Out loud
You
Can’t say my name
Can’t say my name
Out loud

I can’t believe
You could be the weight of my world
I can’t believe
You could be the wait of my world


I
I am a fool
For you
I
I don’t know what
You do

I told you
Late in the game
I warned you
Some things never change
And I longed for you once
But never again

Lost are the days
When you all went away
You were waiting
For so long
Lost are the days
When you all went away
You were waiting
For so long

You
Can’t say my name
Can’t say my name
Out loud

You
Can’t say my name
Can’t say my name
Out loud
