watch: daisyhead – the smallest light

watch: brand new – sealed to me (new song; live)

last night in LA, brand new (jesse solo, really) premiered a new song, “sealed to me.” it’s him by himself in the debut, so there’s no telling if the song is as barebones as the performance is, but who knows with this band? also at the venue were handprinted lyrics to the track, which you can see here..

good song.

AOTY incoming pls
