3. Embrace The Power Of Nostalgia

“I was thinking about Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Marie Knight’s relationship that ended up not really manifesting.

They were in a relationship, which is speculated by a lot of the people in their lives. But [the family of] Marie Knight [died in] an accident, and they could no longer be together because she was spiraling through depression and grief.

All the songs were recorded before I thought about Sister Rosetta Tharpe and her impact… or even about it being sonically infused with rock and roll.

But thinking about it afterwards, I was like, “How can I imagine queer love in a way that’s radical and that has profound complexity?”
