When Harper talked about the theme was crime, a ebook of the letters of Heloise and Abelard was subsequent to me and I assumed medieval sinning could be a pleasant matter, from Heloise’s perspective. I appreciated the music Geologist had made and Heloise began singing alongside.
Simon provides: “Julia and I went forwards and backwards on the lyrics, exchanging couplets till it felt proper. She then delivered a good looking vocal, her melodic sense each compositional and free, over a cool experimental monitor by Geologist. Honored to have collaborated with each of them.”
