about

How You Swallowed your Anger is the new single from Urban Folk outfit Black Sea Dahu. Picking up where the band’s critically acclaimed White Creatures LP left off, this syrupy ballad goes even deeper into the complex anatomy of a relationship, and specifically a break-up. The emphasis here is not on what the lover lost, but rather what she can’t give. And when you finally understand the context, the piece becomes absolutely crushing! The arrangement is stripped down to a pulsating acoustic guitar, a wandering upright bass, lush strings and a voice that appears so close to your ear that you feel like you alone in the world are privy to this late night confession. The song is also extremely hypnotic. It holds your attention like the flickering flame of a single candle lighting up a pitch black room and while you cling to its warm light, blinded by its spell, you know damn well that it will be extinguished soon.

How You Swallowed your Anger is the first song from the forthcoming EP entitled No Fire in the Sand, due to drop this fall (27.09.2019)

lyrics

Lyrics:

I didn’t mean that I don’t want you here with me
And all I can see is a man who wants to give himself to me


And I can’t give anything back
I’m so sorry but I swore by my mother
That I wouldn’t believe in love again


You tell me that you want me too
And that you hate me for I find comfort in this lonely place I’m in
And all I can do is push you far away and guard my borders even more now


I often think of how you pulled me to your chest so tightly
Oh help me god how you swallowed your anger that day
When we met in the park and I was so worried
For a long while we just sat and neither of us could manage to talk


I can’t give anything back
I’m so sorry but I swore by my mother
That I wouldn’t believe in love


I can’t give anything back
I’m so sorry but I swore by my mother
That I wouldn’t believe in love


I can’t give anything back
I’m so sorry but I swore by my mother
That I wouldn’t believe in love


I can’t give anything back
I’m so sorry but I swore by my mother
That I wouldn’t believe in love
