about

Keeskea (case-kay-ah) is the “lofty and delicate, yet fiercely present and potent” (Laundry Echo) project of Brisbane solo artist Vanessa Marousopoulos who's shared stages with Stella Donnelly, Jen Cloher, Jen Buxton, and more.

With a unique gift for making sense of what’s tangled, Marousopoulos unwinds sensitive, long-dormant 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.

“★★★★½ - A huge two from two now from Keeskea who returns with another lilting, layered vocal breeze filled with stardust.”
- Tommy Faith, triple j Unearthed

“★★★★½ - i feel like i'm cradling a newborn when i listen to Keeskea."
- Declan Byrne, triple j

“Keeskea is an artist that lays their feelings out on the line, and we as an audience are all the better for it... This song is enormously special.”
- Casual Band Blogger

lyrics

Lyrics (CW: self harm)
When you’ve got the time
Then you’re gonna cry
Yeah you let yourself down
You’re going to lose Want to 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

I’ve got nothing left
To show
For it
Forfeit

“Take care, stay there”
But I don’t want to 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

I’ve got nothing left
To show
For it
And I’ve got nothing left
To show
For it
Forfeit
I got caught x 1000000
