In the midst of a banner year (that has just seen her sell out her first headline tour), purveyor of intense electro-pop Eves the Behavior joins me to discuss an album that might surprise people - Joni Mitchell’s heartbreaking classic, 1972′s Blue.
How did discovering Joni change her approach to songwriting? How is Joni’s album a document of depression? How does Eves’ synesthesia manifest the colour Blue? Why is ‘River’ her favorite Christmas song and why isn’t she a Christmas person? How did Eves and Joni undertake parallel journeys before making ‘Blue’ and Eves new self-titled EP? How are different songs like different rooms in a house? And why was Eves’ Splendour in the Grass set her favorite show she’s ever played?
