“Written from the perspective of a mythological harmony group. I like the idea of conjuring up a weird cult of science worship, a kind of modern day Eloi who believe in a united being, the unity of all things. The kind of early philosophy I imagine ancient men and women were in touch with, that innate loop of thinking that regarded the world not as something we are in, but as a place that is present within us. The fuzz guitar makes me think of that C.A. Quintet cave setting and the 3/4 dark and obsessive waltz is kind of a world turning, dawn of a new era feel.” - Trish Keenan on "The Be Colony" (Witch Cults/Focus Group Album) in an interview with the Wire.
