It must be the highlight of the day every time you play.
I’d sort of fell into this, “Here’s your three weeks in the studio, go hammer it out with the band,” and I did a similar thing to you guys this time, three or four months by myself in a studio.
What feels like a test for the uninitiated, for Legrand and Scally, is a musical connection that runs so deep, most people can’t get remotely close to it.
It’s not that they’re especially guarded, it’s just that, as the duo behind four albums of lush heartbreak, they want the music to come first, not who they’re dating or what they had for lunch.
Legrand’s languorous voice is like no other, swelling across guitar-scuzzed pools of light and dark, enveloping warmth and devastating cold. Named , it’s a stripped back tribute to creativity, to a zero-fucks DIY mentality that’s as violent as it is tender. CO: Actually I have a day off which is really nice, but I would’ve done this anyway even if I was playing tonight. My new album just came out so we’re playing new material from that, it’s all very fresh and exciting and I’m having a blast. VL: We’re not on tour yet but we will be in a couple of months.
We put Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally on a line with long-time friend Christopher Owens (of Girls) and let the sparks fly. CO: You guys put a lot of yourselves into a live show, I know that much.
