Leyda Buffalo, New York

“Fronted by multi instrumentalist and vocalist Saffi, Leyda is in your face and ethereal at the same time, with vibe heavy rhythms and surging riffs charging over strings and a shimmering clarinet that cuts through the looming darkness, and beautifully wrought lyrics that have levels upon levels, features all in even sharper focus on the assured and brave Hallways.” - Buffablog ... more

Track Name: 11.8
There at the edge again
My country swells in debris, can't feel a thing
Run me into sleep
Teacher barks in my face, spit in my eye

Go on, I wouldn't wait for me
I'm impossible it seems, or so he tells me
Go on, I wouldn't wait for me
Got no hand on anything, got no handle on anything

Oh God, I feel I'm sinking again
But it don't mean a thing, won't let 'em come for me
Oh God, I feel I'm sinking again
But it don't mean a thing, no it don't mean anything

Meet me where the air splits
Meet me where the air thins
I won't say it again, I won't say it again
I won't tell you again, I won't tell you again

I won't
I won't
I won't
I won't
Track Name: Zealots
There’s a red wall in London
Across the ghastly divide
It’s there that I lay down my head
Above the gypsy woman crying

In Paris there’s a dinner
Clear my plate, I eat my share
I burn a hole through the skin of my letter
Fill the ashtray, they wish me well

I do not care for you, father
I do not care for your righteous demands
I give my soul to the blood of the many
I give my heart to a love I don’t have

Do not wait for me mother
Sister knows that I won’t return
There’s a child somewhere with a spirit like mine
To be born in twenty years time
Track Name: Hallways
Thirty degrees, December evening
Drug me to sleep
I left you then, sick in your bed
You just waved me away

Oh, forgive me sun
If I get carried away
Strange how it ends, my distorted youth
On a hill, in a city

Black velvet shroud, my sister’s hand-me-down
My eleventh birthday
No voice in the hall, you weren’t there at all
So easily erased

A torn shirt, a fragile square of earth
I was nearly forgotten
Stuck in my head, I’m a mouse in a maze
With no clear direction

Oh, forgive me sun, I get carried away
I’m a mouse in a maze

Oh, forgive me sun, I get carried away
I’m a mouse in a maze
