Dust 06:40
Dust It's gonna tear it all apart, as it chips away my heart Heart It's gonna tear it all apart, as it chips away my heart And all that's left is dust and dirt and hearts of stone and days filled up with shadows In this house of foolish minds It's not possible to move In this time of sorry souls We've forgotten what we're here to prove Those empty room in our heads Those violent rooms Heart It's gonna tear it all apart, as it chips away my heart, it's gonna tear it all apart The stillness of the night Echoes on and on Ever playing stagnant song The stillness of the room Hues of blue and white Peaceful in their crystal form I can't see beyond these hands Heavy eyes of mine Blinded by my own disguise I can't see beyond her face Heavy soul of mine Wounded my the cold embrace

Air That You Breathe Can I surround myself with the air that you breathe Will you forgive me for the way that I see the world I can't make out the colours This static sea is in my way No I can't make out the colours Just waves of shimmering lights I can feel the magic now I just can't seem to hold it And I can feel the wonder now I just can't seem to hold it Can't seem to hold it in this world for too long Caught in the jagged edges letting them dream your dreams I'm pulling myself off this stage I played this part too many times I can't make out the ending this static sea is in my way Or even a stubborn melody just waves of shimmering lights I can't make out an ending through this web of twisted vines Or even a stubborn melody from the still part of my inner child I'm watching that snow covering these moments I'm watching that snow covering me

She Dances 06:40
She dances She dances to it all She must have heard those beats before I hope she's always there I hope that she feels the rhythm till the end It circles around her It moves in and out like a living breathing thing She lets it fill her body, fill her mind, fill her base and ground her down She feels it turning She feels the bending time of everyday She watches as the sun comes up and sun goes down and stars come out It grumbles inside and waits for the minute we let go Surrendering to what we are and who we are and what we were and who we were It circles around her It moves in and out like a living breathing thing She lets it fill her body, fill her mind, fill her base and ground her down She'll carry on even when the music's gone

Silent Sea 04:58
Silent Sea Quiet light Shining on the water He closed his eyes and waited for an answer Throwing memories to the sea Stuck in this faded picture Crashing memories Pushing down Down into the roots of him Fall into the silent waves Stepping on the empty shells Fall in to the silent waves Making way for someone new He dives right under Trying to remember Who he was before But all he sees are Shells and endless water His feet sink in the sand Throwing memories to the sea Stuck in this faded picture Crashing memories Pushing down Down into the roots of him Fall into your steady dream Caring not of all they told you Fall into your steady dream Letting go of all those chains

about

“Dust”, Anna's début EP, sees her harness her many influences, to produce a sound that is uniquely her own. Her voice conveys a broad palette of emotions, from the brittle sensuality of “Silent Sea” to the playful, summery pop of “She dances”. She is not afraid to explore more melancholy terrain either and reveal herself, as she does on the EP's title song “Dust”; it is this honesty and vulnerability that gives her voice such strength. Lyrically she avoids confessional cliché, writing instead words that unfold with cryptic delicacy. Musically, she has the wonderful knack of composing deceptively simple melodies with immediately memorable piano lines that weave together strands of Classical, Jazz, Dance and Indian music. Dennis Cassidy, who accompanies her throughout, shows just how versatile a drummer he is. The anchor man and drummer of Dublin's Jazz- Hip-Hop collective “Mixtapes from the Underground”, here he holds back and provides sensitive and engaging accompaniment and ethereal arrangements that chime perfectly with Jordan's lyrics and music.

With “Dust”, Anna Jordan has set up an intriguing musical stall full of sign posts to destinations where we are sure to follow her. Jordan has arrived and she is well on her way.
