Katy Kirby – Tap Twice

Die Songwriterin Katy Kirby klopft zwei mal und ich hab sofort die Tür geöffnet. Sofort hab ich mir ihre Geschichte angehört, die sie so zauberhaft singt, dabei variiert sie viel. Alles beginnt sehr intim und endet in einem Folk Epos.

„Tap Twice is about the formation of unspoken agreements in a new relationship, the process of silently negotiating with someone what you might mean to each other, and what happens when negotiation turns into an arm wrestling match over how much you’re willing to reveal. About the weird rapport that develops as you’re circling each other this way (unless it’s all in your head?), triangulating data from small gestures and two-word texts, analyzing the face smiling at you from a profile picture, reading into the murky details of an internet persona. It’s about sooner or later accepting all this as part of the territory–learning to live in that spooky interpretive space with someone, respecting it as a part of the deal you’ve struck up.“ – Katy Kirby
