“All natural reverb with no post-production effects, the song spins a wonderfully organic tale, reminiscent of Nick Drake in the way that the soft but wonderfully rich instrumentation dances alongside Kallesøe’s charming vocals, the two components beautifying each other until they become one and the same; a hand through the surface of water, the sound of a day taking shape.” - GoldFlakePaint

“Cloaked in a childlike sense of admiration for what a new dawn can bring, Kallesøe’s clear, charismatic vocals and knack for an upbeat guitar-led arrangement (one that is almost the dictionary definition of “jaunty”) proves that the pleasant, uplifting folk of “The Hours of The Day” is completely compelling in its welcome simplicity and charm.” - The Line of Best Fit


I don't recall a single thing
the water spilling from the drains, the water pouring in
the scented candles, the house at sunset

My happiness is like a pearl
it's not a thing, it's not a boy and it's not a girl
It's just this something that I've been meaning to tell you

See that girl there on the fence
is she as pretty as me?
See that boy there moving slowly
is he as pretty as me?
You can't understand what they say
they have a song for every hour of the day

Why is it that they say that it's dead?
When it still shakes after we cut off its head
See the wings flapping, see it wiggle and dance
with the blood gushing out

Don't let it make you feel sad
look up now, there's mom and there's dad
tell them what happened
tell them that something just ran through the house

Sunday with your best friend
the rain falls, it's beautiful
he is walking over here
he has grown and he is beautiful
you let him know you mean no harm
and with a single touch you'll carry the wind out of his arms

Here's the waterside pavilion
here's the end of all the reasons,
the changing of the seasons
and the water that looks like wind
around the shipwreck,
on the rail
we're moving in and out of its holes


from Late Bloomer, released September 15, 2014
