My parents had a big record collection, and would make mix tapes for the car. With them I learnt to love all kinds of genres. There’s never a "wrong" kind of music to listen to, as long as it makes you feel something [and] as long as it has soul.
Hero Fisher indulges the most heart-on-sleeve, emotionally-wrought aspects of her canon to provide a track that’ll strike a chord with anyone ever left winded by a miscreant lover. “My life, you can take it/ You break my heart and mend it” she intones over the kind of wintery atmospherics that sound like they’re dragged from the wind-swept moors of Wuthering Heights.
