Natalie Prodrome in its entirety from start to finish is nothing short of a perfect release. Kira’s vocals take the listener on a journey accompanied by remarkably creative lyrical content. The ensemble of the songwriting structure consists of numerous instruments playing their part at the precise moment throughout. To select a favourite track seems overwhelming - an extremely publicly underrated album from a rising star.

Descender 05:21
cold ice hands in the kitchen with the pan blind eye stare out the window through the glare every day oh god there’s a fire out there I imagine myself in it I catch myself in the window - somehow still in the fire on the hill burns the weak body but it’s cold and heavy sinking into itself till it makes its own grave in the ground sinking low into the earth past graves past hell into another hell - soft I fall beyond devil or thoughts of god past orange flame where it’s blue and I remain there it melts me down into metal I drown and I’m heaviest there at the center of the earth at the center of the earth

Heathen 03:29
hey come my way I conduct the current and you will go my way you… you… green green green white and yellow don’t get your chords all crossed or they’ll glow orange like the toaster in your kitchen and you cannot start that fire you… you… oh you heathen you heathen electrician you heathen you’ve got to make the connection screw screws and not switches the Virgin Mary’s not in her shrine and I don’t like the look of that oh you heathen electrician oh you you heathen

Fates 02:50
kid when the doctor looks into your dark heavy head like you asked him to you get what comes to you man so you live with your curse there’s no cure it gets worse it’s not up to you you get what comes to you in your genes in your dreams in your day to day schemes you are paralyzed what are we sposed to do you get what comes to you when the dark heavy head splits apart and you see the brains come through it’s like they always knew you get what came to you

Crowning 04:54
(there’s something wrong, it’s not alive enough) In the thick of it the bearing down give birth to a slow moving thing purple faced they don’t want to touch you eyes wide and searching born far to soon and I sit here waiting she tries to sleep but this is the crowning still moving this is the crowning
5.
Eyelids 04:29
I found you in the silt going nowhere behind a wheel your sorrow in someone’s arms won’t keep you free from harm and you could take me so far away across the water into the grave and I could die here alone with you close my eyelids and see it through sovereign eyes vanishing go for miles without stopping resemble someone else on the highway a thumb stuck out and I could stand here and let it bleed from my hand out into the street feel my body feel it decay close your eyelids I go away close my eyelids I close my eyes
6.
when the silent wave took everything walking through the street on my way to where you were calling out your name and I’m pounding at your door everything inside me knew there was something wrong don’t expect to see you alive and safe at home though all the days took everything and everyone can my body help your body can the mind move the body can the mind reach outside itself can it unchain can it unchain can it unchain can it unchain
7.
Self Denial 04:21

000 04:05

Diagnosis 04:43

Prodrome 04:36
there is a house there is a hell that’s waiting there is a cold there is a cold wind blowing there is a silence and you don’t know what’s coming and you can hide in the sun that’s rising prodrome there is a house there is a place I don’t go there is a mouth there is a hole in the sea and I’m not ready I’m not ready to go there I’m not ready I’m not ready to go there there is a house there is a place I don’t go there is a mouth there is a hole in the sea and I’m not ready I’m not ready to go there I’m not ready I’m not ready to go there
