Tali – ‘The Masters Hand’ is based on the poem by Clive Holden, Tell Me The Truth. Clive Holden is my favourite poet – his way with words is unrivalled – honest, disconcerting and incredibly rich with love. Another of the songs references a Arthur Rimbaud poem in which he speaks with true rage at the disparities between the King and the Paris Commune revolutionaries.

They start off as urgent lines or meditations and eventually expand and settle very sadly/angrily on music. — Under the Radar NZ
