about

Patchwork Guilt Liverpool, UK

Patchwork Guilt was born in a bedroom in Bristol in early 2014, through the lone late-night tinkerings of songwriter/producer Phoenix Mundy. She has since released two albums an three EPs, with the result being described as 'utterly melodic shuttered pop' with a powerful ethereal quality. ... more

Track Name: Matchstick Legs
Oh my god say it ain't so
matchstick legs got nowhere to go
shuffling through the afterglow
matchstick legs got nowhere to go

Oh my god say it ain't so
matchstick legs got nowhere to go
shuffling through the afterglow
but china cheeks won't let you grow

so you move them and you break them and you start again, on the pyre again
and you shake them, cause you ain't them and you ache but you ignite again

and I won't tear you apart

When your paper seams become unglued
and the animal splinters out of you
and you curse the walls for their untruths
well you're lying to yourself, its for you to choose
and you'll be alright, you'll be just fine

When the pressure clouds like cellophane
tapped, like a balloon into a place
where you pour yourself into a haze
put one foot forth and then again
and you'll be alright, you'll be just fine

another flower on a washed out window pane
another moment to be added to a picture frame
another scale sewn on to your patchwork back
Track Name: Gold Books
The night you fell across a flame that danced before your eyes, felt the storm inside your chest although it happened countless times and would again
Straight in to the deep end, way out back, all stars and speaking and then

Step through a door and look around, you're in another world but you don't know how you got away
Pretty colours, the sponge walls of the ballroom and a frantic waltz you've known for years
and when the moment's over, you start all over again

Then you shudder and the bliss turns to an itch with every second effervescent, oh there must be more than this and then there is
No reason, it can't be true that you can redesign yourself as though with sellotape or glue but then you do

Step through a door and look around, you're in another world but you don't know how you got away
Pretty colours, the sponge walls of the ballroom and a frantic waltz you've known for years
and when the moment's over, you start all over again

you lie awake and shy away
and lie awake and shy away
and nothing's ever here to stay
that silver feeling, gone away

Step through a door and look around, you're in another world but you don't know how you got away
new skin seems an appealing vice to behind and drown your fears
and when the moment's over, you start all over again
Track Name: Future Wealth
rise and shine
it's no good
but I thought you understood
the time has come to join the race
plastic smile and a brave face
it's what you chose, for your own good
you're giving up like I knew you would
say they estrange you, rearrange you
say they estrange you, rearrange you

got us rolling, blindfold
but we had all the time and guidance in the world
to plan ahead for future wealth
set up by our teenage self
but you disregarded our point of view
and all the changes we were going through
preoccupied by x-ray eyes
stomach reeling, first times
