Family Album 02:20
I'm sitting here looking at these pictures From so long ago Places I can barely remember People I no longer know Here is my Grandad Looking so proud and strong And here he's singing something But I'll never know the song I see the generations of those who lived before me Through their voices this song is sung Cousins I no longer speak to And my parents when they were still young And it feels so overwhelming To see all the time that's past As I try to place myself in this history A lost boy reaching through glass But to know where we came from Helps us to know Who we are I'm sitting here looking at these pictures From so long ago People I'll always remember Places I'd still like to go

about

The debut album. A collection of indie pop and folk songs about early adulthood and childhood reminiscences.

"Beautiful, fragile album in an indiepop, folky, psychedelic kind of way." - Pebble Records

"It's a slow burner, picking up almost a quarter of the way through with the tender ballads 'Til I Met You' and 'Treehouse'. Clearly influenced by cult classic songwriters like the Go-Betweens and the Triffids, Waldram's disc reaches an early peak on 'Family Album' with near pyschedelic guitars giving it an edge." - Night Flight magazine
