about

On her third single, Kitchen, Sydney artist Annie Hamilton navigates memory, perception and nostalgia through cascading, ethereal vocals and sprawling instrumentation. Written while living in an isolated town in northern Iceland, the song meanders through quiet moments that left their mark, conjuring images of both intimacy and mundanity like pieces of a puzzle. Following the release of singles Fade and My New Tattooed Chameleon, the song is a testament to Hamilton’s astute, direct storytelling and her ability to combine vulnerability with a versatile sound that oscillates between hushed contemplation and explosive, cinematic soundscapes.

lyrics

clouds are rolling down the hills
i tell you that it kills when you look at me like that
standing with you in the kitchen
baby when we're rich can we build a house like that

lying restless in the dark i'd tell you but i can't find the words to say
will you wait up for me later
can you concentrate
are you trying to make it easy for me

you lied, said you liked the weather
knew that i would never pick you for a winter type
we took acid in the bedroom
i was off my head
you stayed awake with me
til the walls stopped melting
faster than the light moved
faster than the time flew
tighter than i held you

standing with you in the kitchen
i'll tell you what i'm missing, tell you what i'm missing

can you see the light move
all around you
i don't think the way i used to, no

i could try to recreate it
but memory is overrated
i almost called you but i waited
til i knew you wouldn't take it

i could try to recreate it
but memory is overrated
i almost called you but i waited
til i knew you wouldn't take it

can you see the light move
all around you
i don't think the way i used to, no

oh tell me what you're waiting for
i get the feeling you're not where you're meant to be
standing with you in the kitchen
i'll tell you what i'm missing, tell you what i'm missing
