This is a simple album about things so complicated that it’s almost impossible to put them into words. It’s about those thoughts and feelings that we all experience but never admit, the things that we, be it through etiquette and embarrassment and fear, dare not confess to others or even ourselves. Bones You Have Thrown Me and Blood I’ve Spilled is an album about people: lonely and loved, corporeal and divine, mortal and terrified yet enduring with a resilient hope that never quite goes out.
bones you have thrown me and blood i’ve spilled is a record born out of heartbreak and loss; the former from failed relationships and betrayals, the latter reflecting the loss of her son only a week after birth. The music is appropriately poignant and devastating, but the title of the record also reveals how these things affect us physically as well as emotionally, whether it’s as simple as losing control of your tear-ducts during a song like “The Crow” or making you curl up in a ball, retiring to bed to make the shape of a claw under the sheets, or becoming ill from being unable to process the thoughts and feelings brought on by whatever life throws at you.
