Ivy Sole – “Bones”
“One day our bones might feel the breeze. And make a home for smaller beings. If I’m lucky, they might tuck me next to you. They say our choices make our graves. We end up there either way.” – lyrics
‘Bones’ contains an evergreen storyline, sugary vocals, and a groovy instrumentation embedded with a melodic bass. Also, it tells the story of a woman who desires the love of someone dear to her heart.
“At my core, I’m a hopeful romantic. I grew up listening to love pouring through my mother’s speakers and out of her mouth. Gospel music is love music. Soul music is love music. R&B is love music. Some of the best hip-hop and indie rock on earth is love music. Figuring out how to love myself has been a journey worth taking, and I’m hopeful that learning to love someone else, particularly in the romantic sense, is too.” – Ivy Sole
‘Overgrown‘ is an autobiographical excavation of a Black queer girl from a single parent, lower-middle class household. She’s trying to find love and purpose after experiencing childhood trauma and heartbreak. Also, the project is about her self-discovery, self-acceptance, and internal turmoil.
