Our songs always start with the word. Poems typically written at dawn or twilight, when the light fades to sapphire blue and starlight, and the world and its boundaries are less delineated. The poems and resulting songs explore the intimacies of love, memory, loss, and beauty. The extraordinary power of love and its impact on our (mis)perceived reality. The ability of love to disorient us and to affect our sense of what is real and what is imagined, dreamed for, wished for, and hinted at. What that power can do in intoxicating a person in Filthy Gorgeous to immobilizing one as in Thursdays in May. And, can any of us run away from failure like in Sleepless in Paris? We're intrigued by the impact of the unfamiliar, uncomfortable, unexpected, and new situations on an individual like in Hong Kong. The dreamlike disorientation, when navigating the familiar and unfamiliar as one of us traveled for a job interview to that cosmopolitan city. The power of memory to affect our perceptions and emotions as written about in You Put a Spell on Him and Alpha Girl.
