Press on House of Cosy Cushions:

'Brooding, reflective, enigmatic...' (Mixtup)
'…a bewitching brew of gently ardent and deeply intimate songs, with a sensuously haunting and slow-burning thrust...Beautiful.' (AU Magazine)
'…post-rock music at its instinctive, risk-taking finest…’ (The Irish Times)
‘…expertly crafted, minimalist works…channeling Nick Cave at his most compelling...’ (Hot Press)
'Songwriter Richard Bolhuis cleverly combines innate pop sensibility with grand neo-classical scope, setting it all off with a twist of mystical folk spookiness...A beautiful, bewitching experience.' (The Post)
'...recalls Portishead and Tindersticks at their most uncompromising...' (Metro)
'…a very unusual collection of dark love songs that echoes influences such as PJ Harvey, The Velvet Underground, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen and Captain Beefheart.' (NotW)

Track Name: May
MAY

there stands may
covered in a blanket on the stairs
she says today I’m gonna take you to the wilderness

we had a smoke
shared jokes that aren’t funny
we walked the land
sang in the sea
Track Name: Outcast Cats
OUTCAST CATS

outcast cats
I brought some friends
let us go to the meadows

we’ll play our songs
you purr along
there’s a tune I’d love
to share with you

outcast cats
we don’t need much
we take care of each other

this land
no one’s land
as we live this life in peace

outcast cats
I brought some friends
let us go to the meadows
Track Name: Haunt Me Sweetly
HAUNT ME SWEETLY

haunt me sweetly
hold me tight
whisper moonsongs of delight

haunt me sweetly
shiver
sigh
body grooves
spirit high

haunt me sweetly
lucid light
shines a mental paradise

haunt me sweetly
my sweet dear
we make love
transform our fears
into love

haunt me sweetly
hold me tight
whisper moonsongs of delight

haunt me sweetly
shiver
sigh
body grooves
spirit high
Track Name: In The Morning Sun
IN THE MORNING SUN

adrift
undone
in the morning sun
sweetheart I see you smiling

now you undo your bright red gown
you silk my tongue with longing

as we float inside each other
our spirits one in the morning sun
our spirits one in the morning sun

in your cuddling cuddling arms
hypnotized by your charms

you dress in a foxy voice
speak with your eyes carnal

I truly have no choice
than to be your animal

as we float inside each other
our spirits one in the morning sun
our spirits one in the morning sun
Track Name: Wings
WINGS

wild lines of beasts alive
manic scream from the countryside
clouds drift by like wings fly

blackberries black as black cats
maid with the insect dress
is ready to please joanne

she can make me laugh
she can make me be
careless and happy

dressed in a long skirt
of venomous tentacles
blessed by the breeze
blowing in your hair
lips like delicious
mountains of flesh
Track Name: Green Eyes Blazing
GREEN EYES BLAZING

your speech so concentrated
drenched in imagery sensually

your green eyes blazing
weave me into your dream

I see you playing
warm blooded darling

your eyes shine bliss
weave me into your dream
Track Name: Flood
FLOOD

face of the ground
facing a flood
inevitable flood
ye must be a rebel

hazy wilderness
under oak tree
blood red wine
have a good time
celebrate a short lifetime

here I am
eve and her great snake
playing my favourite game

hazy wilderness
under oak tree
I drink your lips
have a good time
celebrate a short lifetime
Track Name: Bleed the Need
BLEED THE NEED

darkness you mould
mad dreams inside me
your stars burn
shining lusty

darkness you mould
lewd dreams inside me
your stars burn
shining lusty
riding the light of dreams

sadness take turns
with your lovely sister
when my love burns I am free

life you take turns
with your older brother
twilight sister
won’t you dance with me

love you are mine
here now forever
bleed the need to be
Track Name: I Found a Place
I FOUND A PLACE

beauty won’t go to waste
I think I found a place

I feel so light
I’m dark
undone

gotta picture you there
forever in the sun
