Suzanne & I (4:10)

Cover of Daytrotter Session

Calvi told The Observer that she drew on My Winnipeg, a surrealist-inflected feature film about director Guy Maddin’s home town, for this song. She explained: “There’s a film called My Winnipeg about a guy who really wants to leave a town but he can’t because everyone keeps falling asleep. It’s a really dreamlike film with surreal images of frozen horses in white snow. I had that in mind when I wrote ‘Suzanne and I.’”

The intensely romantic nature of Calvi’s songs, however, is “more abstract” than the one-dimensional eroticism of most pop, she told The Guardian: “Suzanne and I, for example, is about falling asleep, meeting someone in your dream, and never waking up. It’s actually about death.”
