In Tori's words: "To me, To Enjoy is the Only Thing feels like walking past tinsel-covered trees in mid-September, swimming along the calanques in the south of France, frost on the hood of a car, darkness at 4pm, lightness until 10pm, Sibylle Baier’s Colour Green, Devendra Banhart’s Ma, Adrianne Lenker’s a-sides, a muted feeling, the perpetual grey fog that swallows the Silver Coast in Portugal, an ugly green dress, the color red, red wine, red blood, red lips, the red of a cardinal’s robe, Switzerland, my mother’s diaries, a coroner’s report, the sun on my face, the end of love."
STAFF COMMENTSBarry says: 'To Enjoy...' absolutely swims with a wealth of influences from tender 60's folk and country to more exuberant soulful moments that wouldn't feel out of place in a dimly lit club, smoke rising from the tables. It's evocative and brimming with beauty, a wonderfully realised gem.
