True North 02:25
In the night we can never pretend You got a sad look all on your face And when I go you call me up again You wanna meet me in outer space We should fuck off in a drop top in a lip lock do you (mind)? Wanna drop off of the planet, just vanish, don’t panic... I’ll go too Lights off, ooh Things we gon do I talk to you Here we go I’m crying diamonds When I cry over you I shine, shine, shine shine I’m crying diamonds When I cry over you I shine, shine, shine shine Even when I’m pain Even when I’m insane Run away to true north In a blue horse Run away to true north In a blue horse Run away to true north In a blue horse Run away to true north In a blue horse Run away to true north In a blue horse I- I- I I’m hungry for heaven that’s my food source I learn my lessons then think new thoughts I’m counting my blessings up like un, dos

Vice Versa 03:33
Verse Loving you boy, it’s not fun Was shining like the morning does When you walked by think I should have run So sad, my bad Start to think that you’re the one But I show up and you don’t come It’s like I’m the moon and you’re the sun Know that Pre Still running on London time Jet-lagged I been up all night, ooh Overthinking colours in your eyes But you never think of mine And I know I let too much slide, ooh, See who you could be if you just tried Chorus If it was, vice versa I don’t think you’d be fine letting me hurt ya, nah nah If it was vice versa I don’t think I’d be thinking it was worth ya Verse Loving you boy, it’s not fun Cos when I fell you didn’t jump Wrapped around your finger, under your thumb Whole hand, it’s my bad I pull up look fresh like gum When you say nothing I feel dumb Been a messed up past few months I’ve had Pre These days go drifting by Big lows, the occasional high Know you don’t like when I criticise Count fiction in your eyes Feel the friction between my thighs, ooh No way you’d forgive me of these crimes Chorus If it was vice versa I don’t think you’d be fine letting me hurt ya If it was vice versa I don’t think I’d be thinking it was worth ya Post If it was vice versa I’d be nice to you I’d be nice to you, uh huh I’d be nice to you I’d think twice for you, uh huh I’d be nice to you Swear I’d fight for you uh huh Bridge Why do I put up with this I’m running out of fucks to give But then we share another kiss And I fall back in Why do I put up with this I’m running out of fucks to give But then sometimes it’s utter bliss And I fall back in Chorus If it was vice versa I don’t think you’d be fine letting me hurt ya If it was vice versa I don’t think I’d be thinking it was worth ya Pre Still running on London time Over here it’s 4:05 Just counting up all your crimes I’m holding on so damn tight And I really don’t know why See who you could be if you just tried Post If it was vice versa I’d be nice to you I’d be nice to you, uh huh I’d be nice to you I’d think twice for you, uh huh I’d be nice to you Swear I’d fight for you uh huh

Verse Feet up on the dash In a whip that gives you lash Always wanna win yuh Never gonna crash Uh uh, I go off again Uh uh, take your oxygen Pre And you’ll be crying all night Fuck it, maybe all year Ain’t no sweet thing underneath this veneer Feeling so cut throat, heads might disappear Clink clink, cheers Chorus Pose quick, and the camera go flash Them pics gonna make a splash In the paper, see you later Cos nice girls finish last Smile big cos I got that cash Whip the whip that I’m driving so fast No favours, love to hate ya Cos nice girls finish last Verse Full power mode no solar It’s Ninajirachi and Kota Imma let you in on a secret, shh Imma give you full disclosure When we pull up it’s all over, When we drop this it’s red rover You should go and phone a friend, (best friend) Make sure they have a real nice shoulder Pre Cos you’ll be crying all night RIP your career No games no joke no lie Was told here You been crying all night Time to face those fears Bang bang, we’re here Chorus Pose quick, and the camera go flash Them pics gonna make a splash In the paper, see you later Cos nice girls finish last Smile big cos I got that cash Whip the whip that I’m driving so fast No favours, love to hate ya Cos nice girls finish last Post Oh last, last, last I put you on blast, blast now Watch you fall apart, part, part So good to be bad Oh last, last, last I put you on blast, blast now Watch you fall apart So good to be bad

Verse Your lips are hot like pepper I fall in and out of habits Haven’t laughed like this in forever Just might let you have it Pre Hyper aware of my imperfections, ah Let’s roll this joint like a motion picture I’m so scared to tell the truth Heaven, hell, keep it all to myself Chorus Shaking like a leaf in the wind Don’t let me fall, fall Don’t let me fall again Take my time boy I want to win I want it all, all I want it all, all again Refrain Fall, fall, fall, fall again

Verse I just wanna put my hands on you Got a red-bull heartbeat, I think, you could make it stop Look at those eyes electric blue Make my head go starry, are we what you think about? Pre Put my GPS on, question Every little thing that you mention Got a sexy dress on, sweating I’m trynna hide my obsession I just can’t help it baby I cannot seem to play it cool Chorus In the middle of the night In the middle of the night In the middle of the night I’m fine, I’m fine ’til it all comes out In the middle of the night I’m fine I’m fine til it all comes out In the middle of the night Verse I just wanna make big plans with you If I leave this party sorry but I’m coming round It’s a concern that’s chemical When my head goes starry, are we what you think about?? Pre Put my GPS on, question Every little thing feel the tension Got a sexy dress on, sweating I’m trynna get your attention I just can’t help it baby I cannot seem to play it cool Chorus In the middle of the night I’m fine, I’m fine ’til it all comes out In the middle of the night Bridge Overthinking, overthinking Yeah my mind’s a crowded room Overthinking, I need thick skin Every pin prick’s a fatal wound Overthinking, over thinking Thinking how I’m so into you Overthinking, always thinking Chorus (alternate) In the middle of the night Put my GPS on, and I’m coming through Got my sexy dress on, when I’m loving you Put my GPS on, and I’m coming through Baby I cannot seem to play it cool x 2

Holy Water 03:47
[Intro - nina talking] It was really hard and fast But I can hear myself a little bit better now, um And yeah life’s pretty good I don’t know… Sex in your apartment Over the beach I wanna know there’s something bigger than me There’s orange in the noon sky, Big lies, end times, for you and I and everything Look at me and say that it meant nothing to you Make me feel like even now I owe you something Look at me and say that it meant something to you, yeah something to you And from my eyes Come holy water No it’s no surprise It’s only water Don’t wanna fight No, that’s a lie Want you to cry, cry Don’t be scared It’s only water Holy water Holy water Raining down on me And I feel so free yeah Raining down on me All night until I’m clean yeah Raining down on me, yeah Raining down on me

about

A seven track odyssey, True North is a true best-of-both-worlds collaborative project, carefully crafted from start to finish by two young women. Floating atop Ninajirachi’s vivid and visceral instrumentals, Kota Banks’ merciless melodies and delivery combine effortlessly to create an aural rabbit hole.
