Hannah Fury Soul Poison
Track Listing: The Necklace of Marie Antoinette, Scars, Idaho, Eat the Dirt, The Last Piece of Cake.
Quiet melodrama with sparse piano is what we know and love from Hannah Fury, especially with lyrics pleading, Please dont leave me here in the dirt and suggesting murder with I make it seem like Im innocent . Fans of Tori Amos and Kate Bush will love it; Rasputina fans may also turn their ears up for this one.
