Lizzy McAlpine’s ‘five seconds flat’ is all flashes of clean white sheets, sunlight streaming through the blinds, the first stir of your coffee on a morning.

Cada segundo desse álbum é apaixonante em todos os sentidos, eu sou um pouco suspeito pra falar porque gosto muito de álbuns que seguem esse molde catártico, melancólico e superdramático (Punisher, Flowers For Vases, folklore...), e o five seconds flat é um grande representante e definitivamente um dos meus favoritos do gênero.

I'll be the first to admit that I don't know much about this genre. That be said, is this a Punisher rip-off?
