The Forest

from Icarus Girl by Siobhan McCrudden



Icarus Girl is the debut album by Siobhan McCrudden
Released world-wide on 7 December 2018 on hungersleep records.

Noted as ‘One to watch’ by NewSoundWales, Siobhan McCrudden’s voice has been described as ‘fragile, pure and hugely distinctive’. Siobhan crafts songs of intensity and sweetness, recounting personal stories whilst reflecting a vivid fascination with dark folk tales and superstitions. The result is a hauntingly nostalgic and elemental set of alluring narratives and exquisitely melancholic songs that defy any one particular genre and entrance the listener through their spell- binding beauty.

‘Icarus Girl’ is carefully arranged and produced by acclaimed art-rock musician GRICE who has infused the songs with his subtle yet distinctive instrumentation. These shades magnificently showcase her haunted, folk-noir sound.

'Siobhan McCrudden really does have a voice of great intensity and beauty' NewSoundWales

‘music from the morning mist at the edge of a wood’ From the Margins

‘Absolutely beautiful ... just stunning, the voice is something else’ Adam Walton, BBC Radio Wales


The Forest

There is a path rolls through the forest,
Oh its course is straight and true.
Though alone I walk upon it,
Everything I see is you.

Here be dragons, here be ogres,
But in fear I shall not reel.
Fairy tales and scary stories,
You are the only thing that’s real.

I am aware that I am weak
I will not think, I will not speak,
Or look before I leap.
But I could love you every part,
From your bones to your heart,
For all the days that I have left to start.

Now the night, as black as velvet,
Tastes so sweet upon my tongue,
And the tale as I would tell it,
Is of this thing we have begun.

And the winter will grow colder,
As the wind will learn my name,
But as sure as I grow older,
I am just the same.

Should you wake to find one morning,
As the light rolls through the trees,
Out of nowhere, without warning,
I have brought you to your knees.

Then I will know that you are weak,
You will not think, you will not speak,
Or look before you leap.
Oh I will love you every part,
From your bones to your heart,
For all the days that I have left to start.
