about

Commenting on themes that inspired ‘Barbara’, Stewart says: "This track was inspired by re-watching the original 1968 Night of the Living Dead at a household movie night. I love zombie movies. I noticed how the main woman’s character was a weak crumbling mess that was almost completely useless in the chaos that was happening. Meanwhile the men were pulling it together and saving everyone. This sort of inequality is typical of this era I guess, but is still annoying! Anyway the song is mostly told from Barbara’s perspective…"

"I often find inspiration from watching movies and I think I wrote most of this song right after watching this! I like how the loops and noise at the end feel like you’re being surrounded and swallowed up by something. I love the cello parts in this track. Freya Schack-Arnott has a real knack for textures and creepy sounds as well as creating beautiful and sorrowful lines.”

lyrics

I sat there, meek and afraid
All I could do was think of my brother
I tried to help but I’m too weak and feeble
There was nothing I could do

They’re coming… they’re coming for you Barbara
They’re coming… they’re coming for you

I found a strong man to help me
After I crashed my car and ran away
I hear them knocking at the door
All I can do is sit here shaking

They’re coming… they’re coming for you Barbara
They’re coming… they’re coming for you

My brother… I found a strong man… Too weak and feeble… I hear them… Knocking at the door… They’re coming… Ohh…
