    Physically own Letters of Last Resort, with unique and personalised packaging. The achingly classic Compact Disc comes in a lovingly-crafted 6-panel digipak cardboard case, beautifully slipped into a brown fleck 120gsm thick recycled vegan gluten-free envelope, with your fine name and gorgeous address printed in jet cobalt black ink. Affixed with a stalwart bright red 1st Class stamp, the package is then hand-placed into a traditional British postbox.

    (Personalised artisanal envelope subject to availability and the whim of an unstable printer.)

    Includes unlimited streaming of Letters of Last Resort via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

lyrics

Tell lies with your mouth
Smile and nod
Curl your lips upwards against your thoughts

Your mind went south
And the weather turned to fog

Wake up, you're not lost
Automaticity kicked in
The main road took you home

And you saw me in that state
Subconsciously awake

Did you see me driving down?
Did you see me driving down?

Read your way out of thoughts
Try to suppress them they just multiply

Momentum's tough to stop
The memories in your muscles be stronger than they ought

That camera caught your face
They can limit your speed but they can't change your state

Did you see me driving down?
Did you see me driving down?
