kayceekayce I'm glad I came across your music off of soundcloud. Thanks to that your first album became my first physical purchase so although I didn't purchase this before I'm glad I can listen to it now without mobile data. You became my gateway to Aussie music both your sound and Australia are too much for me to put into words. Thanks Airling

Dr. Beaf It's a semi pop/electronic centric EP that is mostly lento and hits all the right buttons due to song writing (and programming chops) and the production/mastering crew that took the quality up a few notches. It's a shame it isn't a LP. Special credit to the drumming on "By Thorns" from the 2 minute mark - that 30 second part fit perfectly. Thanks rosscoejj!

Evan Witt Love Gracefully is the perfect title for this EP. With rich beats and an enrapturing voice Hannah Shepherd knocks it out. *swoons* Favorite track: The Runner.

Ouroboros 04:29
Erase it and erase me It’s a circular faith in living Oh, that small space where your heart should be Fill it with hands on lips, kiss for feeling Falling through insanity You think I’m crazy Love, it lingers After death and into reality Oh, a life lost is not armour gained You wanna love gracefully Through your heart that’s failing Wanna die with dignity, we can make it happen But fight a little extra for me and I’ll brave it all, oh Fight a little extra for me and I’ll brave it all Erase it and erase me It’s a circular faith in living Oh, that small space where your heart should be Fill it with hands on lips, kiss for feeling You wanna love gracefully Through your heart that’s failing Wanna die with dignity, we can make it happen But fight a little extra for me and I’ll brave it all, oh Fight a little extra for me and I’ll brave it all Love is not all you gave At the end are we all saved? Why did you fight and why did we pray? When the beginning was the end He made You wanna love gracefully Through your heart that’s failing Wanna die with dignity, we can make it happen But fight a little extra for me and I’ll brave it all, oh Fight a little extra for me and I’ll brave it all

By Thorns 03:28
Kill the mind, mind, mind with your hands of cold Kill the mind, mind, mind with your hands of cold Kill the mind, mind, mind with your hands of cold Kill the mind, mind, mind with your hands of cold Against a page of the lady ripped, oh By thorns and broken with flaws Spill to the floor And then we’ll crawl To safety of a love you need Hear this voice take its toll Feel my love through your soul Left with nothing to fight Kill the mind, mind, mind with your hands of cold Kill the mind, mind, mind with your hands of cold Kill the mind, mind, mind with your hands of cold Kill the mind, mind, mind with your hands of cold Here in her arms you used to feel moved, oh It is warm for a moment… gone Set her free from the things you seek, oh How far will broken wings fall? Hear this voice take its toll Feel my love through your soul Left with nothing to fight Kill the mind, mind, mind with your hands of cold Kill the mind, mind, mind with your hands of cold Kill the mind, mind, mind with your hands of cold Kill the mind, mind, mind with your hands of cold

A broken in mess But you don’t need no one to tell you how it is, oh Broken from the head down to the toes Losing everything that you live for Sleeping all the nights with your eyes pinned Swallowing the air when it tastes bitter How much can your body take? Only what your heart can make, oh Give it until your body breaks How much can your body take? Only what your heart can make, oh Give it until your body breaks Black and blue all over your body Feeling it now though it’s been years since she left And the ghost of you is lonely It’s a war baby Fight it with your hands tied behind your back, oh Broken from the head down to the toes Losing everything that you live for Sleeping all the nights with your eyes pinned Swallowing the air when it tastes bitter How much can your body take? Only what your heart can make Give it until your body breaks How much can your body take? Only what your heart can make Give it until your body breaks Fly with wasted pilots Fly with wasted pilots Feeling alive but dead inside Feeling alive but dead inside How much can your body take? Only what your heart can make Give it until your body breaks How much can your body take? Only what your heart can make Give it until your body breaks

The Runner 03:33
The runner doesn’t speak He won’t speak to me Pack a bag and fly across the seas And don’t feel a thing But the booze to your head The women in your bed And do you know what it’s like to be sober? No longer, no more looking back When you’re high there’s no time for that Leave me here, our love is not the law But I’m all you are So take the booze to your head The women in your bed And do you know what it’s like to be sober? With the booze in your head The women in your bed And tell me what it’s like to be alone, but so loved Leave me here, leave me here Love me here, love me more Leave me here, leave me here Love me here, love me more So take the booze to your head The women in your bed And do you know what it’s like to be sober? With the booze in your head The women in your bed And tell me what it’s like to be alone, but so loved

Our hearts are still, they lie untouched We’re worlds apart, we sleep alone Don’t leave me with this monstrosity Don’t leave me with this monstrosity With pills I’m fine, they coat my mouth Made room for guilt, so slow my thoughts Hold me now, leave me unwell We don’t talk no more but love you no less Don’t leave me with this monstrosity Don’t leave me with this monstrosity I’m a long, I’m a long way I’m a long, I’m a long way from where you are I’m a long, I’m a long way I’m a long, I’m a long way from where you are

about

Scroll over song titles for lyrics.

'Love Gracefully' is the debut EP from Brisbane artist Airling, AKA Hannah Shepherd. The recording sessions came about after Tom Iansek (Big Scary) enlisted Hannah to provide backing vocals for his #1 Dads album 'About Face'. Shepherd shared some of her songs with Iansek, and the two immediately made plans to get them recorded. Multi-instrumentalist Graham Ritchie joined as co-producer and the trio bunkered down at Mixed Business, the ramshackle studio of Iansek's label Pieater, who subsequently joined with Airling to release the EP.

Over lush electronics incorporating RnB production, Airling sings about the immense feelings of love, guilt and loss from losing a close loved one, about escapism, and of mental health battles.
