Beggar 04:49
Sorry I’m unkind I need you Push you to the side No excuse Sorry I was cruel I gave you All I could Don’t give up on me Don’t give up on me As you breathe deep in the night So silent now Vulnerable the beating heart Inside of you There’s nothing here but bones and skin And I like this view It’s easier to just pretend So I lie to you Sorry I’m a fool I need to Drive you up the wall To feel alive Sorry I’m unkind It’s really The only way to Keep me satisfied Keep me Satisfied As you breathe deep in the night So silent now Vulnerable the beating heart Inside of you There’s nothing here but bones and skin And I like this view It’s easier to just pretend So I lie to you

Hollow 03:04
Sleeping in the late night It’s dark now I could never be just yours Maybe with a little time You’ll realise We must let the flowers grow You are You are You are Hollow on the inside Sleeping in the late night It’s Autumn I’m a dying apple tree Everything that falls from me Has roots you see They have gone too deep this time You are covered in skin With the heart of a reptile And the scales they scrape Against my face I’m a fool to let them You give Everything you can to burn my pride down You’re a mess outside ‘Cause you’re hollow on the inside You are You are You are Hollow on the inside You are (Sleeping in the late night) You are (Sleeping in the late night) You are (Sleeping in the late night) Hollow on the inside

Buddy 04:06
I don’t wanna be your prize I will run away and hide Use my spots And shield from light In this game of seek and hide I will never need To be forever yours You used to be the friend I thought I’d never have Late nights with your guitar in light of Breaking Bad Don’t need a cigarette Forget you for a while You really had my best I gave it with a smile Summer nights in moving cars, we drive down to the south Getting lost in conversation, water at the mouth Don’t need a silhouette to stand beside me now You were the gasping breath The line between my brow I wish my sentimental mind was callus too And I wish my limbs would push away from things like you What the hell are you waiting for I’d give a mile if you’d knock my door Always keeping me wanting more Always gonna be on the floor Just try to catch me now

There’s a voice inside my head Saying To give it all to you But I don’t want to give you hope I decide to hold the words I’m saving I’ll save them all for you But you will only wear them out Forget Stop wasting my time and yours And still You’re here Are we Seeing Shadows? I’ll fall With you Like dead fruit I’ll crawl Through thorns To free you For life For love Inside I’m wilting You’re mine Or I’m seeing shadows I’ll fall With you Like dead fruit I’ll crawl Through thorns To free you

Heal 03:54
Cloud outside my window Purple blazing star It’s calling in the distance Telling me to break your heart If you’re so afraid of steep hills Just go swimming in the deep Now your kingside bed is empty And your tv set won’t sleep I’m trying to feel again Like to heavenly souls combined Without all the dusty trips Cut the card in half Keep us alive Leave me in this dark room And I’ll try to play it cool ‘Cause I know that in the distance They’ll be making plays at you I’m trying to feel again I give up on sin And i’ll let it win I’m trying to make you high I’ll remove myself And I’ll let you heal I’m trying to feel again Like to heavenly souls combined Without all the dusty trips Cut the card in half Keep us alive

Almost Bliss 03:08
Pales skies Green eyes Drawn like fireflies Dead by sunrise Like our sweet lies This is almost bliss This is almost bliss Tempt me at night Pull like moon tides Dance till sunrise Can’t say goodbye This is almost bliss This is almost bliss The light is fading upon your skin and my Body won’t lie We both know how the story ends It’s taking over It’s taking over
7.
Glue 03:04
We came away through the worries again Though I can’t sleep at night You carved a heart into my eyes It’s not right The severed stars pull away from my chest As it breathes inside You’re lonely eyes Open wide to amaze the night And it will stay Like glue To a letter And Stars won’t fade Until they reach Their brightest life And honestly We could do much better And reach the darkest of the night We came away through the forest again With adult feet I followed you Emotionally tied to your sheets The severed stars pull away from my chest As you stare from the trees With breath inside I’m out of time to end the retreat
8.
Arrows 03:24
I can’t sleep Midnight take me To another realm Whispering softly I try to understand The future in my hands And my mind awakens Arrows fly tonight Across the skyline Burst into flames Feel the Embers Arrows fly tonight Across the skyline Burst into flames Can you feel it? Heavenly embrace I travelled through time To make sense of this life We are divine
9.
Burn 03:23
We can Pretend To try Forever But I’m tired Of wasting All my time I thought We’d work To make Things better But we’ve changed Too much To be the way we were Let me go I’m falling behind So let me go And let it burn Should I Have tried I don’t know If I’m guilty And It hurts To remember How we used to be
10.
The Void 04:48
I can feel the void The absence taking over me Love was mine to hold You took it as it reached my skin Still the show goes on The lights are up, but no one’s here Flowers in my lungs Your Icey breath will freeze them dear In my head You’re a bed of roses Where my hands are tied (Behind me) In my bed Curtains fall Then I wonder Where I am (It’s lonely) Walking in and out I’m nothing but revolving doors But I called you out And now you’ve never loved me more Still the show goes on The act of choice has found her role I’m the substitute Who’ll never leave the dressing room

about

Written, mixed and produced by Zoe Mead (Wyldest), Monthly Friend documents Mead’s empowerment not only as an entirely self-sufficient artist but also as a woman overcoming gender stereotypes and societal constraints. Indeed, the title itself, ‘Monthly Friend’, is a reference to something society taught her to be ashamed of which she now regards as a blessing.

Musically speaking, ‘Monthly Friend’ sees Wyldest continue on that evolutionary journey. Taking inspiration from the tender songwriting of Elliot Smith and the precise guitar patchworks of Soccer Mommy and Hovvdy, she has fused together these two elements plus her knowledge of ambient, soundtrack-style textures to produce an intimate indie rock opus.
