Your music has been called “Dream Pop” music-what does it really mean in your case?
In our case, it's the dream logic our songs follow, something beautiful becomes violent, the switch is flipped and your sense of gravity is inverted – it's chimeric. What makes it pop is that it's subversively fucking with you in an appealing way, as pop does.
How was Dollshot conceived? Rosie being from Virginia and Noah K from LA? When did you meet?
We met in Boston, fell in love and moved to New York. We've been working together since. Dollshot expresses the contradictions we live in – it's glitter and doom. The heart of it is the play between voice and sax. It grew from there. . . .
Where does the album title “Lalande” comes from?
We were both really taken with the idea of this made-up word 'Lalande' in Clarice Lispector's novel Near to the Wild Heart. It describes a certain kind of liminal state that "…is also the night sea, when no one has set eyes on the beach yet, when the sun hasn't risen." It's a feeling we connected to, an intense awareness of the world in the dark.
