about

Gaoler's Daughter London, UK

Their first 3 self-released singles championed by Zane Lowe, Steve Lamacq & John Kennedy lead to invitations to play tour dates with Babyshambles, Graham Coxon and We Are Scientists amongst others.
Their fan-funded debut album ‘How To Make Time’, released in 2013 is a uniquely dark view of London life. In a rare move, their second and final album ‘Split Like Cells’ documents the bands' break up.

Track Name: Mirrored Shades
Checking out the pretty girls on parade
I'm wearing my mirrored shades
and when the blood runs hot
my heart grows cold
I'm window shopping for fool's gold

Like Hunter S Thompson with sunburn
Illegal shorts and Hawaiian shirt
Hey girls! I've come out to play.

I'm on holiday and I like to have fun
Cutting out eye holes in The Sun
and when the night falls
I am the midnight fox
sandals with pristine white socks.

Like 007 with binoculars
In a darkened corner of the hotel bar
Hey girls! I've come out to play.

Chorus
But even when this was supposed to make sense
I still felt like the party was on the other side of the fence

I save up these images for later
Follow you up and down the escalator....
Track Name: Ghost
You'd smiled but not stopped
to make small talk with the girl
you used to know at secondary school
she just wanted to chat
about the weather or something like that
but you were busy making up important plans

being late home could've caused a catastrophic missing
of that show circled in red pen in the t.v listing

You'd humoured the teenage boy
bored at the checkout
with one word answers about your holiday
You'd done your shop for the week
barely even having to speak
and it was two for one on microwave meals

You were pleased by how coy you'd behaved
and all those precious little minutes so skill-fully saved

But how sad it is unlocking
your studio flat front door
how cold how long your shadow on the floor
how the disconnected phone
laughs at you all alone
how the sofa nearly swallows you alive

You're a ghost you're a ghost
you're invisible to most
you're a ghost living by the coast
you're a ghost
