Favorite track, which often plays in your head?
Christina: Oh perfect life of love, from the Lutheran Hymnal. Of course I couldn’t name an absolute favorite but for some bizarre reason this is the one I hear in my head the most.
Cicely: That’s an impossible one – there’s always something playing up there!
Christina: Simple…t-shirts and jeans. Anything comfortable and white, my favorite non-color. I don’t really like thinking about clothes…I feel I have so many other things I would rather worry about and want to simplify dressing!
Cicely: Comfort always. That’s partly why I wanted to be a musician so that I could work from home in my pajamas.
Christina: Cicely’s brain – her precision, her analytical intelligence, her concentration powers– and her unmovable strength!
Cicely: I would say we’re pretty different personalities, which has been a great strength when forming such a close working relationship. Christina is incredibly tolerant, patient and optimistic - I feel like I’ve learned a great deal from her and I think I’ve probably mellowed since we’ve been working together. She has a deep soul and her voice is an inspiring thing of beauty!
Christina: 'Stalker' by Tarkovsky, 'Ida' by Pawlikowski and 'Dancer in the Dark' by Lars von Trier.
Cicely: I have a soft spot for musicals like Oliver and Annie.
Christina: Walking in the forest in Scandinavia.
Cicely: Far away from crowds, good food, good company.
Christina: Emotional, introverted, loyal.
Cicely: Strong, passionate, stubborn .
Christina: Feminine, minimal, DIY.
Cicely: Dark, feminine, minimal.
Christina: The entire Vikings show.
Cicely: 'Usual Suspects'.
Christina: Bitter truth.
Cicely: Give me the bitter truth. Any day.
Christina: At the moment – 'The Argonauts' by Maggie Nelson.
Cicely: 'Anna Kerenina'.
Vinyl or streaming?
Christina: Vinyl for its warm sound!
Cicely: I would like to say vinyl but I’m short of space so stuff just gets thrown on top of my record player and doesn’t really get the use it deserves.
Christina: 35 mm – it’s so good to see a non-digital photograph…
Cicely: 35 mm camera. I learned to take photos on an old Olympus OM2 when I was 14. I spent hours developing my own pictures in the dark room. It’s incredibly therapeutic and that smell of vinegar is still really nostalgic.
