A fog-bleached track, which bows under its own weight as it pierces and chimes, To Find Where Ur Tru Image Pictured Lies, Which In My Bosom's Shop Is Hanging Still is a collaborative effort by Organ Tapes and Sea Lion Gang member GROVESTREET, out December 7th on Tobago Tracks. Named after a line in Shakespeare's Sonnet 24, the dark echoes of the track will quickly take court in the deepest recesses of your mind.
“Mine eye hath played the painter and hath steeled Thy beauty’s form in table of my heart;
My body is the frame wherein ‘tis held
And perspective that is best painter’s art
For through the painter must you see his skill
To find where your true image pictured lies
Which in my bosom’s shop is hanging still
That hath his windows glazed with thine eyes
Now see what good turns eyes for eyes have done: Mine eyes have drawn thy shape, and thine for me Are windows to my breast, where-through the sun Delights to peep, to gaze therein on thee;
Yet eyes this cunning want to grace their art
They draw but what they see, know not the heart.”
William Shakespeare Sonnet 24
