According to some blurb we’ve just read Bless This Mess by Lisa Mitchell was ‘inspired by the household saying you often see cross-stitched and hanging on a Nanna’s wall’. We’re not sure about how you quantify the word often, but certainly our Nanna (R.I.P) didn’t have anything like that hanging in her house. From what we remember she had a framed picture of a rabbit running round in circles which we painted at nursery school aged 4. However Rabbit Running Round In Circles probably isn’t a particularly great name for a song title or an inspiring lyrical theme so we’ll take Bless This Mess instead.
Bless This Mess, the title track from her new album (which sadly appears to only be receiving an Australian release at the current time) finds Lisa putting her foot down and embracing life’s rich tapestry of chaos with a more beefed up sound than we’ve heard from her before. Take a listen below.
