SHIRA - “Handlebars” Music Video Premiere!

Israeli-turned-Brooklynite singer Shira’s new music video for ‘Handlebars’ incorporates all the mischievous, imaginative weaponry, identity twists, and paradoxical fashions one associates with psychological thrillers. But the video is light and harmless, feeling more like a nonsensical dream set on the streets of New York than anything horrific. While it’s second nature for us to try to categorize new singers upon our discovery, Shira purposefully makes things difficult by playing different characters, as well as creating great, obtrusive music that is quite hard to describe or relate to anything else.” - BlackBook Magazine 

Picked up my first of Gitanjali’s work a few years ago at a tightly-packed used book store in Northampton, MA & recently it picked me up, plucked my heart like a peach from the day’s mundane basket & bit, bit, bit. I am eaten whole. I am wholly tasted. I am forgetting all sense of flesh & self & time & letting it take me to the depths, lonely night upon night. Perfect loneliness, our togetherness.

Autumn Prayer

Autumn is coming & with it, abundance.

The rain & its ancient endless hammers,

the good field of Self let loose with red horses.

I am ready for the shift, the darkening of days

& goldening of quiet.

I am the cliff where a lone rivulet of green dangles.

I ease into the arms of October, releasing my sleep into its care,

allowing my wakefulness to unlatch & open inside its gaze.

I am the fruit of summer, reaped.

Let me run in the orange wind.

Let me unfold in crisp daylight.

Let me ripen & fall,

& falling, resist

no thing.
