Letting go of reasons it's the turn of the new season with your eyes down with your eyes down I am trying to save the ground you paved I am tired too my friend Wonder if you’ve seen them would you try to please them with your eyes down with your eyes down I am trying to savour this taste this is a siren in new skin Ohhh…. there’s hope
2.
Echo 03:09
Eyes wide, eyes open on this place Hand to, hand open for you, a decade I’m an echo too just passing through There’s nothing here lets stay Keep driving, keep moving on out of this place new people, no names lets make a break I’m an echo too just passing through There’s nothing here lets stay Oh to keep this freedom Oh to keep this freedom Real
3.
Ammo 03:00
Ammo I’m feeling unlevelled this morning the breeze is here it starts to groan An older self is talking don’t play the radio All the times you went under Falling into, feeling thunder That was just show Too much for this, less for that never question, never answer just be small It’s all meant for something this is how you learn to learn What a teacher, fury’s daughter Red inside her, red the colour This message is much older handed to you, taking power keeping you low Park it far but keep it close for when you need it, need it most It’s your ammo
4.
Trying to take it all in a disappearing party I’ll hold your hand If you want me to let us become real And oh the sweet malaise Walking in and out of the room floor boards speak as I do Blinds reveal a peaceful scene nothing is moving at all And oh be this Always The house is now a temple of thinking and reliving and pace Reaching out for more of you there is so much we can no longer chase And so I’ll stay here for days Oh I hear it grow Can we go Underneath the storm Oh I hear it grow Lets go Underneath the storm
5.
Free Doom 05:16
We are so blazed half eyes half fazed Going inside, okay Going inside, I’m grey This is just farce together but apart We are the maze enter at your own pace They’re holding up the stage they’re holding up the stage This is just farce together but apart Walking down and up I am the straggler You’re voice is the map find the way
6.
Oh the world has gone insane I’m just staying and you’re just praying All you see is who to blame leaving is easy Is that what they see? Is this the thing we’ll look back and rethink Is what you think What you think or what’s been done? Oh I know there’s no going back You’ve been changing and I’ve been spectating Listen now, there’s more to say it’s all just maybes this all just chases me Is this the thing we’ll look back and rethink? Is what you think What you think or what’s Been done?

Horrozontal 04:20
Hiding in the distant sun a silhouette of one What a trip, what does it mean? Everyone is dreaming And never with words the feelings are right there on the screen Running past, the bird of song the road, the route becomes so long Fade it down, fade it well all of this is horizontal And never with words the meaning is right there on the screen And never with words the feelings are right there on the screen Oh the feeling goes Oh the feeling goes
8.
Mountains 04:22
What’s between the lines a template of lies I’m caught and tossed aside flapping on the outside How do I get in? In place of giving in? Do I stand and feel the cold and take this dance alone? Gonna try again Gonna keep it real It’s all mountains You play the judge again just friends of friends of friends I’m trying to find the door Through walls and walls and walls Someone takes a seat A crown above a cheat A key upon the hand There never was a door Gonna try again Gonna keep it real It’s all mountains
9.
Slow Burner 03:42
Slow it down going out to find a way, hey. Burning slow A year is long how many drinks We’ve flown, hey You’re going out there too going out there too going out there too going out there too There’s a delay pause it on the better scene you played Hey Chase it down don’t let it get away Hey You're going out there too...
10.
We’ve got today that’s all I forget that each day Holding on to this part We can never go back to our start My mind’s a thought bus takes me away take me back Holding on to this part We can never go back to our start We lay on the lawn remember Le Carillon Hear the trucks horn under the wind All of these moments have passed Can we stay right here we can’t Holding on to this part we can never go back to our start
11.
Oh I See It 03:30
Oh I see it it’s so clear but it’s hiding so damn deep I go chasing it anticipating that I’m make-believing make-pretending And It’s starting to show Take me with you if you need too I’m hanging round your neck y’know I’m not that honest but you’re a forrest So hard to know it And it’s starting to show There’s an offer of a kind side playing on the stereo its louder than the thunder it’s showing you it’s gold And it’s starting to show Oh the light it going when you’re flying on the ground Oh you seem to think your glowing glowing like a star All of this unknowing only takes me far Far enough

about

With Reverie is JESSICA’s second solo album.

With Reverie, is self-described as sounding like "Kate Bush on Valium”. With nothing else but piano and vocals, Jessica revisits the first instrument she learnt briefly as a child (and abandoned namely due to the teacher’s “disciplinary” approach).

All songs were written this year during Sydney’s extensive lockdown and recorded and produced by Darren Cross (Gerling, D.C Cross) who is also Jessica's other half in folk-goth duo, Jep and Dep.

The songs were recorded live, just vocals and piano, with some harmony later added. This process, and the less-is-more approach has created an album of immense solitude, and delicate intimacy.

With Reverie is an exploration into daydreams, thoughts, mind-trips, wonderings and introspections.

With Reverie will be released exclusively to Bandcamp.
