Aldous Harding - The Barrel Lyrics




I feel your love
I feel time is up
When I was a child, I never knew enough
What'd that do to me?
The wave of love is a transient hunt
Water's the shell and we are the nut
But I saw a hand arch out of the barrel

Look at all the peaches
How do you celebrate?
Can't appear inside of nowhere

It's already dead
I know you have the dove
I'm not getting wet
Looks like a date is set
Show the ferret to the egg
I'm not getting led along

I rushed in to hold down your page
And now I sleep 'side words you do not read with me
I hear a song from inside the maze, the very one you made
You shook at the ivory mantle
As a poet, I knew to be gentle
When you have a child, so begins the braiding
And in that braid you stay

Look at all the peaches
I want to celebrate
I can appear inside of nowhere
Look at all the peaches

It's already dead
I know you have the dove
I'm not getting wet
Looks like a date is set
Show the ferret to the egg
I'm not getting led along

The wave of love is a transient hunt
Water's the shell and we are the nut
But I saw a match struck outside the barrel

(The barrel)
It's already dead
I know you have the dove
I'm not getting wet
(The barrel)
(The barrel)
Looks like a date is set
Show the ferret to the egg
I'm not getting led along
(The barrel)
(The barrel)
It's already dead
I know you have the dove
I'm not getting wet
(The barrel)
(The barrel)
Looks like a date is set
Show the ferret to the egg
I'm not getting led along
(The barrel)
(The barrel)
(The barrel)
(The barrel)
(The barrel)
(The barrel)
(The barrel)
(The barrel)
(The barrel)
(The barrel)
(The barrel)
(The barrel)
(The barrel)
(The barrel)
(The barrel)
(The barrel)

  8. Jennifer Durrant

    I feel your love
    I feel time is up
    When I was a child, I never knew enough
    What that do to me?
    The wave of love is a transient hunt
    Water's the shell and we are the nut
    But I saw a hand arch out of the barrel

    Look at all the peaches
    How do you celebrate?
    Can't appear inside of nowhere

    It's already dead
    I know you have the dove
    I'm not getting wet
    Looks like a date is set
    Show the ferret to the egg
    I'm not gettin' led along

    I rushed in to hold down your page
    And now I sleep 'side words you do not read with me
    I hear a song from inside the maze, the very one you made
    You shook at the ivory mantle
    As a poet, I knew to be gentle
    When you have a child, so begins the braiding
    And in that braid you stay

    Look at all the peaches

    I can appear inside of nowhere
    Look at all the peaches

    I know you have the dove
    I'm not getting wet

  9. ᴏᴘᴘᴏsᴇ ɢʟᴏʙᴏʜᴏᴍᴏ

    Ugliness isn't beautiful. This person's affect is irksome on purpose and that's a bad thing

    Bliss

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

    ᴏᴘᴘᴏsᴇ ɢʟᴏʙᴏʜᴏᴍᴏ

    @Bliss And there are many, many deranged, suicidal hubristic beholders in our world

    Bliss

    @ᴏᴘᴘᴏsᴇ ɢʟᴏʙᴏʜᴏᴍᴏ merry christmas

  10. Blazenka Kusenic

    The hat looks like a condom. Definitely a song about conception. Very hypnotic. Feel like I leave my body for 4:53.

  11. Sonic Hedgehoggle

    Great to see Noel Fielding is still dancing post Boosh

  12. erik dv

    From Belgium : WHow

  13. Nolan Ross

    I have watched this about 6 times in a row

  14. Nick Charles

    She looks like the chick from Dogtooth...kinda acts like her too.

  15. Tyler Hodge

    I also can't stop watching this video. I think it's because I'm seduced by Aldous' dance moves

  16. naitsab Leka

    Chie un coup

  17. Al St

    I'm surprised nobody is commenting on the theme of anti-natalism that runs through the song. Aesthetically, it harks to the Shaker movement in the early 19th century.

    Tim Snoddon

    I think with a modern context

  18. Greg Hussey

    New Zealand is pumping out so many good creative original musos - just fantastic

  19. Al Mack

    I am in love.

  20. plantagenant

    Amish goes disco sexy!

  21. Len Neal

    There is another comment, by a guy, who says, 'I've known two women like this: one is dead, the other is on the Nobel Prize committee for Literature'. I've known two women like this: one launched me into the Bosnian War in the 1990s and later decided she was a lesbian, the other is a full professor in Germany and living her dream life.

    Hilde Hildegard

    ...all of that

  22. Sam How

    cult sh!t unus annus

  23. RB Bisc

    Interpretation of the lyrics??

  24. guinnesstrail

    Nah, the video doesn’t do it for me. It really fucks up a half decent song.

  25. Daniel Elliott

    might sound a bit strange but I think none of her previous lovers will ever forget her....

  26. I'm not goodbye

    I've herd this song once and I already want to learn how to play it

  27. calicomoonchild

    So underrated, glad I discovered her thanks to Spotify!

  28. Calvin Dueck

    70s pimp style meets the Salem witch trials. This beyond weird and I love it. She absolutely has her own style.

  29. Freddy Burger

    Timeless and haunting, at the same time beautiful and unsettling.
    Engimatic, subtle movements accompany sweet fluid tones that weave a tapestry of dreamlike imagery.
    Wholly surreal yet palpable, and moving.



    This is a profound audiovisual masterpiece to rival any made before it,
    and should stand as a benchmark by which those to come would be judged.

  30. Warachara Upapong

    Her music here sounds like Beck during Sea Change era tho

  31. Warachara Upapong

    NOEL FIELDING HAS TO SEE THIS

  32. PjR

    mutantes fans are gonna love this!

  33. Hans Meiser

    4:03 ---> https://youtu.be/7XzLbGssArQ?t=258

  34. 애교코만도

    빠져든다

  35. Alperen Karakaya

    Abla niye adnan oktar gibi dans ediyosun

  36. Oded Fried-Gaon

    Gooooooooood

  37. Сайрес Смит

    honestly, I don't understand music, but I am in unhealthy addiction with this video

  38. RB Bisc

    Blue face looks like the witch in movie Labyrinth

  39. clazina maria schellekens

    👌💓💃⭐

  40. sensationsuperthrust

    4:04 alaxander marcus was the coreographer

  41. Thamal Throaway

    Thom Yorke's kiwi Sister

  42. April Noel

    Absolutely beautiful magical masterpiece I'm so in love

  43. linde

    bro she's just straight up vibing

  44. carla casey

    Love this :-)

  45. Ning Wasabi

    Oh my gosh...she is so beautiful and i like the weird moves and her
    gesture so much! I caught myself doing her wiggles in everyday life... :D

  46. Coenraad .K

    She's David Bowie and Laurie Anderson's love child.

  47. Jelle De Ringh

    Love it

  48. Andrea Prodan

    Makes Kate Bush look Normal.

  49. Eric Harmon

    The trombone part lacks variety

  50. Daniel Phnut

    About ten years ago there was a glut of female singer-songwriters who were self-consciously 'kooky' (Joanna Newsom, Regina Spektor, Feist, etc), who were OK but basically sung their songs in a voice that was either hyperactive toddler or old creaky woman, and this was sometimes used to hide the fact that their songs weren't always particularly interesting.

    Now we've got female singer-songwriters like Aldous Harding who sing in richer, more fully-rounded voices, and they actually make their songs interesting by writing interesting songs, as if it were the most obvious thing in the world. And with weird lyrics and good arrangements (either that, or I'm a sucker for a bass clarinet), and that's great but FUCK ME this song has got under my skin in the last six months, and her freaky fucking half-terrifying/half-unbelievably-erotic/one-extra-half-this-is-what-I-will-see-when-they-finally-burn-me-at-the-stake video has me having waking nightmares in work, never mind when I'm trying to get to sleep at night.

    "Show the ferret to the egg"??! I cannot begin to tell you how those six words alone have weirded me out this year.

  51. lucatme

    OMG So qUiRky

  52. gimp

    She's probably the only one dancing. Boring

  53. Futures

    the end of this is terrifying, it's like being chased down by a zombie jimmy savile in an apocalypse hospital - thank the lord the sung soothes such bad thoughts

  54. The Devils Eleven

    The guys behind the camera must have had a scream making this video

  55. Mister Pumpkinhead

    She's so mysterious. I've known a couple of girls like her, one is dead and the other is in Svenska Akademin handing out Nobel Prizes in literature.

  56. Joel Lederer

    Very David Byrne.

  57. Stymie Cunningham

    I know this dance.

  58. Joe Pyrexia

    Adorabal!!! The Godess!!!!

  59. Eric Hathaway

    the Bene Gesserit of performers

  60. Tinisha Searle

    I was not expecting that blue mask , that freaked me out for a moment !

  61. DAMEIN O'FERRALL

    Her face is so interesting and satisfying to look at.

    Tinisha Searle

    It really is.

  62. Rajeev Desai

    Can someone do a Aldous Harding Dance / Napoleon Dynamite mashup with canned heat???

  63. ajp piro

    Sounds like a Dido song.

  64. swanstep

    If Miranda July were a pop-star...

  65. NotReallyRebecca

    this but every time I get uncomfortable the hat get taller

  66. SimplyGimpy

    I feel like this is her celebratory paganesque fever dance just before she descends to the village and collects her terrible and bloody harvest from the foolish, greedy and unwitting villiagers who made with her some terrible tragic bargain.

    The ferret is about to eat some delicious fucking egg and peaches, if you know what I mean.

  67. markus808808

    Who said white girls can't dance :)

  68. Razor Back

    None can't beat her on the dancefloor. ;)

  69. Leo Tuzzo

    what does her t-shirt, at the end of the video, says?

  70. Deztitute

    Every time I watch this, I expect it to turn into a horror movie.

  71. jaht3z

    Mildly erotic and disturbing at the same time.

  72. mannequin

    effin' bizarre - i dig it.

  73. Twirlyhead

    I heard this first on BBC Radio Cymru.Driving along, tuned into the _wrong_ station. Some good stuff on though language thing was pointing me toward the door. Then this came on and grabbed my attention such that I made an effort to find it and came here; that is once I had figured out that Aldous Harding is a person and not some welsh mountain or such. Imagine my surprise when I saw that by some synchronicitous chance she has the exact same outfit that I was wearing for that one day only as I drove along.

  74. gypsy melodies

    She sounds so familiar like maybe 1 of those featured artist on an Air or a Wax Poetic album.

  75. Jason Campbell

    This video contains the right amount of weird.

  76. Annabel Jones

    I don't know what I saw but I liked it

  77. Sara Magdy

    It gets progressively incomprehensible...

  78. Christopher Goyette

    This album and DC Fontaines "Dogrel" are my two favorite albums of 2019. This is art, pure and simple.

  79. Twitting On Trender

    A nice pop tune with a way-out promo film that’s surely heading for the hit parade.

  80. Mar Koz

    'look at all the peaches, how do you celebrate', is one of the lyrics of the century. The perfect balance between nonsensical and infinitely meaningful

    Cellar Door

    I agree it's poetic

  81. ZWICK 6

    That hat is from The Holy Mountain

  82. Eugene Black

    any one wearing those shoes would dance like that to stop the pain

  83. cocteautwinned

    I will never ever get tired of this.

  84. A Whitney

    Pilgrim Morticia Addams and her little wiggles are killing me, I love it but also I feel a little like I'm cursed now?

  85. tary

    Shocking and strange video. Like it ;)

  86. friele80

    "it's allready dead" - Aldous Harding

  87. Rue Dwyer

    Overheard at The Barrel video shoot brainstorming session: "I wanna do something that's never been done... " DONE!

  88. Josue Clavelo

    This song oddly makes me just want to dance the exact way she is while I listen to it...

  89. bob bert

    i need that fucking hat!....cus reasons...

  90. ryan.m

    i like the song but can't watch the video, the blue-face is too creepy... reminds me of one of the characters in the pub in Corpse Bride

  91. Jimsy

    Jamiroquai? Is that you JK?

  92. Jimsy

    Good song - but watching the video with the sound turned off is even better.

  93. Nandini Dasgupta

    This is so weird. I love it.

  94. Jelene

    YouTube suggested this. I’m so glad it did.

  95. squdzz

    That mask is scary👁👄👁

  96. watchyMCFCwatchy

    That is such a lovely tune. Great voice and backing singers' too. She is a bit off the wall as well, which makes for a good video.
