This was an important place in their lives

by Interbellum

Cayo Costa 14:32


Brendan Burke details the inspiration for the new Interbellum album thusly:

I moved into a new apartment in the same building. A family with two small children had been living here for several years previously. The textured wallpaper in the bedrooms has all these "sun shadows", where art and pictures had previously hung. These spots are much darker than the other spots on the wall, and so they form rectangular areas that are easily discernable and where other people's memories and things used to be. To me, that's sort of an interesting thing.

From the initial bass dredging on “Some Rather Poor Advice,” it is evident that layers of static and disruption have been woven into Burke’s plangent melodies. A palpable sense of absence, loss and contradictory discovery are expressed across This was an important place in their lives.

This Was an Important Place In Their Lives is the second Interbellum album and the first completely realized by Burke alone.
