Leila-U & i

this isn’t music about communion or an actual exchange. Instead, it’s all about alienation: from society (“We are not the countries that we’ve been investing in,” chants Sims on “U&I”), from technology (the artwork is supposed to represent a hard drive crashing down), and from the people we meet. Just look at the generally distorted syntax of the song titles and they way they seem to prefer vaguely poetic undertones over any sense of straightforward, comprehensive meaning. It’s as if U&I was also asking you to make sense of its compelling sonic mess.
