"You walk into a room, and your mood shifts. In one group, you are wise, funny, energized. In another: timid, dull, cranky. A library, full of quiet intensity, turns you into a scholar. A football match into a raving lunatic. The unseen threads running between people affect us. When we notice people listening, we listen, too.

Individually, the members of the trio hist og have played on countless records, with countless musicians of countless genres. I imagine they couldn’t have done this without paying attention to the people they work with. On these songs here, the sense of mutual focus and listening pulls me right in. What a beautiful record this is. You listen to it, and it listens right back."
