A-side “Despite The Snow”, the title of Emily Barker’s second studio album now reveals itself as a song written to accompany a short, silent film by Patti Gaal Holmes which in turn was inspired by the subject of dreams and by Robert Graves' love poem called 'she tells her love whilst half asleep.'
AA-side track “This Is How It's Meant To Be” was recorded in a live take during The Granary Barn album sessions one snowy weekend in last March, with the four members of the Red Clay Halo (Emily on acoustic guitar and vocal, Gill Sandell on accordion, Jo Silverston on cello and Anna Jenkins on violin) sitting around a few microphones, a couple of electric bar heaters and with blankets over knees.
