We featured a two-part review & interview with Lisa in May of last year in which she gave a great insight into the EP and why she had chosen the theme of May:
Ultimately I think it is the power of the sun. That may sound a bit pagan (not that there’s anything wrong with that) but I think that in this climate where we endure such an inhospitable winter sometimes and abundance of cloud and greyness, when the sun and the summer finally come through again it feels so magical and it strikes me every year that no matter how many summers I’ve seen before, every time it first comes around it feels as wondrous and beautiful as if it’s the first time you’d ever seen it. I think it’s probably the first time since before the winter that the weather is warm enough (hopefully) for people to gather, outside, and celebrate, what better thing to celebrate than the coming of the summer and more celebrations.
“..it’s like opening up a Victorian music box to hear the most beguiling and captivating singing and sounds; an original concept throughout, and utterly disarming… Her song ‘Jack’ is very fine indeed, and if it doesn’t win an award for best new song I’ll eat my May Garland!”
– Shirley Collins
