My name is Taylah, I'm a singer/songwriter, who goes by the name 'Spines'
I am desperately looking to form a band with a few others! I am currently working with a friend of mine who does music management for a music management company split between New York and London and she is keen to start gigging (with an opportunity for a gig next month!). Also if anyones producers/anyone good at mixing/mastering, hmu!
I'm looking for other members who are preferably no older than 30 (as im 22), who have similar taste musically and who are pretty openminded. im looking to create an atmospheric moody dream pop/folk feel with acoustic and electronic elements.
I am not at all looking to take creative control and delegate roles, I am entirely open to you composing your own parts, suggesting/criticizing/advising, doing your own thing really; im just looking for other like minded musicians (preferably another guitarist and drums/percussion, but if you play anything else feel free to email me aswell) to get together and have a fun at the end of the day.
I write all my own lyrics (think daughter/marika hackman-esque), have a bunch of songs, and play the acoustic guitar along side, but I feel pretty limited in what I am capable of creating alone and also lack in confidence.
I am very serious about this, like i have said i am working with a music management company, and am hoping to record an EP later this year! I have recorded a few demos at home, with a few being mentioned on blogs (i have one little magazine review also- v proud) as well my first song ghost being played on bbc introducing kent.
If you are interested in anyway, dont hesitate to email me or to message me on ; my name is Taylah Swaby-Wright (probably best to email me first as often the messages dont come through when we arent friends), and my soundcloud: brokenspines. Please email me before you add me on as i will probably decline your friend request if im not sure who you are!
Pls do not email me if you are in a band and want me to sing on your track that also happens to be of a completely different genre!

Bones (Demo)little lyrics- oh young girl you will be whole again you will be home again if you can distance from what you were then it will be morning soon the night will fall out of you and you'll find a space to use within the body that has kept you all this time and within the hollows in the corners of your mind you can take comfort for all that was not kind let's not leave with all that we came I'll give you my bones and you can clean them out and start again oh young girl you will find stillness some day you will find softness some day that will the pain worth what u paid there will be a body lying there hide what's left of your heart in her hair and tangle yourself with it there within a body that will kept you for all time and light the hollows in the corners of your mind you can take comfort for all that was not kind forgive a body for keeping itself let's not leave with all that we came i'll give you my bones you can clean them out and start again i'll give you my bones and we can pretend that you need them
Overripe (Demo)small song in anticipation of the spring. this is called overripe. just a quick little song to tie you over for now about favourite fruits that dont last long enough. lyrics: peach stone skin naked and rough stuck in her throat suffocating love peach skin fuzz soft and new causing a rash irritating you i was gone long before you could taste that there might've been more peach pink lips bitten and raw leaving small traces of blood on yours peach like flesh bruised but strong you never did like the ones left too long I was gone long before you could taste that there might've been more oh peaches and cream skin girl it's okay you've had enough don't eat too quickly you'll fall out of lust with the sugary dribbles of our overripe love peaches and cream skin girl there maybe be nothing left but your sticky hands and the mess I left
Rusta small contribution to the ever growing collection of solemn songs- this song is called rust and will be part of an EP called Watching It Happen early next year. this is the longing to hold onto the innocence you left in childhood, because within in it lies a strength. 'what have we become. we started wars, and we were children once.' lyrics- cigarette lungs, unhand my mind I'm only young and this can't be right my voice old and my throat is dry I'm only young and this can't be right dont lead beneath the dust dont leave behind the dusk dont let the night seep through my skin dont let me rust perforated skin, hold me tight I'm only a child and this can't be right my sister is old and my brother is unkind I'm only a child and this can't be right dont lead beneath the dust dont leave behind the dusk dont let the night seep through my skin dont let me rust what have we become we started wars and we were children once what have we become (my brother, my brother) we started wars and we were children once (my brother, my brother) what have we become (my brother, my brother) we started wars (my sister is lost) and we were children once (my brother, my brother) we started wars, and we were children once.
Thawing (demo)thawing - original by taylah swaby wright i did a little something yesterday the result of realising that you must not rely on other people to make you happy, however you can allow yourself to lace them within it; its only taken me twenty one years. there something in the water the bath has cooled too soon wrinkling skin lets lie back and soak it in (we aren't lonely) parallel bodies and parallel pains running similar routes hand in hand lanes running in form from things far ahead I'm tired you're breathless lets spend time and rest the bed isnt warm enough the night is chilling its frame goose pimpled skin lets fall quick and keep the heat in (we're just colder than we thought) parallel bodies and parallel pains running similar routes hand in hand lanes running in form from things far ahead I'm tired you're breathless lets spend time and rest i will hold you and you can lie back and we'll melt together swim through ourselves in laps. you will untangle, all of the thread so i can make this bed to rest our heads rest our broken necks on unsprung beds unsprung beds rest our heads and our broken necks on unsprung beds rest our heads and our broken necks on unsprung beds i will hold you and you can lie back and we'll melt together swim through ourselves in laps will you untangle all of the thread so i can make this bed theres a garden on the roof lets sleep in the rising heat flushed warm skin lets thaw ourselves out from within
hollows (demo)hollows - original by taylah swaby wright might have been fiddling around with garageband again and stumbled into this little thing. this is the result of procrastination and twenty years learning to accept i am the sum of those who made me. i hope you enjoy and feel openly obliged to comment and constructively criticise, i would love to know what you think. lyrics- i am my mothers child a heart of patchwork stone i have my fathers bones so i'll never be alone and what if all tomorrows waste is just what we are today leave our mothers words in the hollows of our spines i think its just about all that we deserve of all they tried to build i am just inherited weight i am all of the things deep inside of themselves that they truly hate and what if all tomorrows waste is just what we are today leave us our mothers words in the hollows of our spines i think its just about all that we deserve and when they thought that we could live and love they were mistaken forgiven for the sins of youthful hearts that were taken to make promises that we never meant and all that what we though was left is gone now we lament with all of our failings and what if all tomorrows waste is just what we are today leave us our mothers words in the hollows of our spines its just about all that we deserve i think its nothing more than just what we deserve
ghost (demo)so.. um.. this song only went and got played on BBC INTRODUCING KENT (thank you so much to everyone who has listened to it, i could send you more hug, kisses, and unconditional love even if i tried) ghost - original by taylah swaby-wright the spoils of a whole day playing with garageband and a fair few energy drinks. this is the progression of the previous version of this song i uploaded. its nowhere near perfect but hopefully its a vast improvement! all feedback is very much welcome love n stuff lyrics- we are wasting and wanting to breathe miming hate through gritted teeth standing in nowhere longing to leave i am, i am, i am a ghost and i am sorry but you will never know i am hot and hoping for the sea to cool my skin, and leave me be with the distaste you feel for me i am, i am, i am a ghost and i am sorry, but please just let me go shake me, shake me, shake me free talk to me, oh tell me all that you need then claw me out of your head out of your bed oh tell me you want me dead tell me you want me dead tell me you want me dead cos i am, i am a ghost oh i am a ghost i am a ghost so tell me, so tell me you want me dead
