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.

A Partner to Lean On is easily one of my top three favorite albums of all time. I heard it for the first time about 5 months ago and have essentially had it on repeat ever since. I've been basically unable to listen to anything else in that time because nothing lives up to this. Ian Whitlock

Very challenging to pick a favourite song - they are all so potent. Poetic and poignant lyrics, that stand out and are sung with finesse, all to go along with lush acoustic instrumentals. Jeremy Backlin
