“Wisteria” has been out for a month now. Here’s a quick catch up on some of the responses to the album and interviews with the band.
UK magazine/ website The Quietus reviewed “Wisteria”, declaring it “an album that, at once, glistens with a hearty pulse and drifts further and further into ghostly fog…Beautiful, scary and endlessly evocative”.
The review was by Mick Middles, author of “Factory: The Story of the Record Label”, writing about a band from Dunedin, about as far away from Manchester as it is possible to go on earth.
Lucinda and Hope talked about his review in an interview on Dunedin’s access radio station. Lucinda and Danny talked to Music 101 on Radio New Zealand explaining the background of some of the album’s songs.
The band also talked to local newspaper the Otago Daily Times, where Lucinda revealed her lyrics are influenced by the setting of their home town, Port Chalmers. “I walk around Back Beach in Port Chalmers a lot and that’s where a lot of my lyrics are written – as I’m walking, usually in cold weather.”
