Now I’m gonna let you go
 It’s a silent tide so soft and slow
 Now I’m gonna let you go
 Suck up the shame Let it seep down my throat
2.
Your lips glisten
In that snippet of video I could bite and suck them off An open lipless ‘o’ I’m a nice little cooing dove That you can get hold of Nice little cooing dove That you can get hold of I’m coming through the screen Crawling on your table 
My mouth against your neck 
A trickling sap of maple I’m a nice little cooing dove That you can get hold of Nice little cooing dove That you can get hold of I’m a girl you can hold IRL I’m a girl you can hold IRL I’m a girl you can hold IRL I’m a girl you can hold IRL

I’m touching screens More than skin Touching screens More than skin Picking it up again Tapping, typing Picking it up again Fingers gliding

I need to quit Lurking on your profile I’m okay but you need To back off for a while Don’t hug me These bones This tissue I can’t get over you with you Can’t get over you with you Can’t get over you with you You left your stuff all over this room I’ll rub it on my perfumed chest before Giving it back to you soon Don’t hug me These bones This tissue I can’t get over you with you Can’t get over you with you Can’t get over you with you

The ocean sparkles in the sun Wet and glistening 
In the cold spring
 I feel like giving you things I feel like
I feel like giving you things I feel like giving I wanna list something pretty like 
I wanna describe something pretty like Cantaloupes and orchids
 A pair of glossy lips
 Brownish-purple figs
 Something black that feels like color
 Clusters of flowers 
A blue vain bulging from your arm (blue waste stretching) Drops and water swirls 
Your eyes these two limpid worlds I feel like giving you things In the cold spring 
I feel like giving you things In the cold spring Outside the window 
A storm has downed the birch The tenderloin of the garden (a fat green knot) Your eyebrows, your chin Face the glassy skin 
Of the cherry blossom Blushing flickering white The soft light

about

'Skinned' is the debut album from Danish composer, producer and singer ML Buch.

After releasing her debut EP Fleshy in 2017 ML Buch is ready with her first full-length album Skinned that takes her expansive guitar work and catchy melodies to another territory.

With her unique experimental pop and vocals that seem to slide into your ears as fluorescent liquid, ML Buch portrays the reality of intimacy in a digital era. Working primarily with synthetic midi sounds, the general love of songwriting and guitar music is ever present.

The album comes with an extensive visual side in the form of five music videos acting as tableaus that echo the encounter between screens and skin and how the senses wriggle, flutter and weave in and out of our online presence and intimate lives.

As if in search for something real, ML Buch takes the listener on the other side of the skin. Led by tender love songs like I’m A Girl You Can Hold IRL and Can’t Get Over You With You we journey through her throat and into her intestines, discovering a fascinating realm of shiny mucus and bile in flesh and yellowish colors. Panoramic images were captured by a small pill camera travelling through the body of ML Buch and act as extentions of the architecture of the music. This literal way of internalizing modern technology is symbolic of Skinned where eclectic instrumental compositions share the space with strong hooks and ML Buch’s spherical voice.
