Ahead of the release of her stunning album ‘summerskin’, returning champion Eves Karydas joins me to talk about her unique relationship to Sufjan Stevens’ ‘Carrie and Lowell’. We unpack the journey Eves took between her last visit to the podcast three years ago and how this album accompanied it - moving to the UK, taking time away from music, renewed inspiration and her evolving relationship with her own public persona. We discuss how she fell in love with ‘Carrie and Lowell’ before she knew what the songs were about, the strategic use of details in the lyrics, the importance of directness in emotional communication, the way Sufjan reinterpreted the songs live and more.
