this song is about how, almost a year ago now, i moved from bristol where i have mostly always lived, to brighton where i was actually born but have mostly not lived.
moving city is a really hard thing to do, especially when you are sort of set in your places and people and surroundings. i am very glad i moved and i’m very happy to be living by the sea. my favourite thing is the way sometimes the sea seems to move itself into the streets of the city, wrapping all the cars and lamp posts with thick white sea fog. i also like the people here and the flat i live in and the cats i have.
i am glad i found a way to express how sad it feels to feel new and unsure of everyone and everything and how its weird that i often can’t remember the name of the street i live on because its a bit like the name of a street in bristol but not quite and i get confused.
i hope you like the song. i recorded it myself in my living room and eventually it will be part of my next album which might be called conway court.
