about

Half Written Love Letter speaks of the idea of knowing a place intimately, even if it doesn't necessarily want to know you back. It hangs between hurt and nostalgia, (for both Selina’s Nigerian and Yorkshire heritages), and is a love song, split between the two voices of the author and the singer. The author’s recorded voice sounds ‘long-distance’ as if through the radio or a conch shell. The live singer weaves a range of foreground lines; spoken, choric, and vocalise. The song proceeds through a series of verses over a ground bass, the percussion driving it forward in a series sections like the pages of a letter.
