about

The ambient compositions of Keeskea (case-kay-ah) exist between worlds. Both electronic and naturalistic, ghostly and melodic, rhythmic and adrift, the Adelaide artist's self-produced 5 track debut "Find Yourself Alone" is both placid and filled with lyrical unease. A suite of gentle compositions whose odd, surreal beauty cannot be underestimated. 

With a unique gift for making sense of what’s tangled, 21 year old Vanessa Marousopoulos unwinds sensitive emotions to their threadbare state with her vintage Harmony Alden H45 Stratotone and whisper-close vocals, couching them in gentle electronic production, but leaving more than enough space for reflection and reconnection.

Perhaps what is most striking about Find Yourself Alone is that its sense of space and emotion is bottomless.

Track Name: I'd Doubt
wait I'd doubt
you'd save me the time
lift up you head
tell me that you're sorry

tethered by words
you'd say to pass the time
try not to ferment it
tell me that you're sorry
just tell me that you're sorry

and if I can't come back from this
flawed mind tell me what to do
and if I do collapse
from all the truth's that I lack

cos I am not able to
wake myself for you
and I'll try not to
see it
tell me that you're sorry
tell me that you're sorry about it
Track Name: Forfeit
when you've got the time
then you're gonna cry
you let yourself down

you're gonna lose
wanna tie that noose?
you let yourself down

fickle and faint I will kneel
never really had the time to feel
perplexed help me find the line
not to cross before it becomes a crime

and I've got nothing left
to show
for it
forfeit

"take care, stay there"
but I don't wanna be anywhere
where does the devil meet
all the minds that can't seem to find their feet

and I'm losing all the will
and I never really had the time to heal
perplexed help me find the line
not to cross before it becomes a crime

and I've got nothing left
to show
for it
and I've got nothing left
to show
for it
forfeit

I got caught I
got caught I got
caught I got caught
I got caught I
Track Name: Help Me
did you
see me?
did you, see me?

the water's coming down
and I'll drown
if you don't help me

if you don't
help me

you left
me here
I'm cold instead
you left me here
help me

and when you find yourself alone
just come down to my door
and if you find yourself my love
just know I'll always want more
Track Name: Red Shirt, Green Socks
and I know it's not the best you've felt
and I wasn't good at giving you help
if I knew more of the ways that I could try
I wouldn't hide

if I knew the way you felt before you left
for that house - red shirt, green socks and something
you wore your thoughts as though they didn't need to hide
I wish I were blind

I was lost more than I care to admit
but that's because a lot of the things that you did
made me feel that maybe I wasn't enough

and that night I fought so much in my head
what to say, was it appropriate?
if I ignore the words caught in my chest
I wouldn't have left

I have waited so long
you're not here to mend this
you're not here to mend this
Track Name: Too Much To Ask!
I would like to speak with you again
if it's not too much to ask
I'll see you then?
I'll come to your house
will you let me in?
or hide from me
and hide from what you've always been?

(I mind)
(you lied)

you didn't want to speak again too soon
but laughed at me
what did you expect me to do?
I've never felt so small in a shadow
but I won't shy away from it
just so you know.
