English folk royalty meets Australian soul in this new collaboration between Marry Waterson and Emily Barker; an album of fly-on-the-wall observations of the contradictions and disconnections of modern life. No strangers to collaboration, Waterson and Barker discovered an immediate kinship when they started writing together. The intriguing combination of Waterson's poetic lyrics and Barker's eclectic musicality has been shaped in the studio by musical polymath Adem Ilhan. Waterson's wordplay takes centre-stage on the album. Barker opened her toolbox of musical ideas, and the two songwriters began to weave the multi-layered musical tapestry that has brought the songs to life. With no self-imposed restrictions on musical direction, the studio sessions allowed the songs to take their own path, roaming from the sub 3-minute indie-pop of 'Perfect Needs' via the sparse jazz-blues of 'Trick of the Light' to the epic alt-folk of 'All Is Well'. 'Little Hits of Dopamine' took shape when Lukas introduced the trippy double bass groove that underpins the whole track, and the album is liberally smattered with Adem's lavish string arrangements and ingenious electronica. The resulting collection of songs pushes the boundaries of Barker and Waterson's renowned roots styles, venturing into a diverse union of genres - contemporary folk, country and soul nestles comfortably alongside lilting indie and playful blues. 'A Window To Other Ways' is the product of two revered musicians embarking upon an exciting, explorative journey, and a charmed collaboration. [info from label]
