North Carolina's H.C. McEntire is gearing up for the release of her second album, Eno Axis, on August 21. We ask her the BIG questions...
Tell us three things about yourself?
I love disco.
My favourite activity is mowing the grass.
How would you describe your music?
Who are your musical inspirations?
The Bee Gees, Neil Young and Nina Simone.
How have you been occupying yourself during the coronavirus lockdown?
I've been doing some remote work-for-hire vocal sessions.
Watching paranormal and true crime television shows.
Being still and slow.
Talking to the dogs like they're humans.
What's your favourite song right now?
It Must Be Someone Else's Fault by Courtney Marie Andrews.
Favourite lyric of all time?
This entire song: Mary's Song by The Aislers Set.
"I was darkened by the sin.
A wasted hour closing in on a lovely day
when I got up before the freeway.
I got up and set my clock.
The river up the street
and down the block got faster and
I wished that I got the nerve to
ask her what she thought.
About why Portland skies are grey.
Why'd you want to see it every day
when you know there's kids starving
in England/Alaska for the sun.
By the way, can I come?
I swear I won't be a burden.
Eight o'clock came cruel today.
Can we just lie here instead of leaving?
You and me and Kye had tea there in the kitchen
and I was cold.
I got up and got my coat,
kissed you three times and winged it home
with a smile wider than my arms
could stretch in E minor. Don't go.
I could know you better I know.
And the photo booth memory's a ghost.
Japanese stickers, a toast,
to how I could kiss you every mile of the west coast.
So Julie can I have a whiskey
because she got in a car and she never came home.
Hello all my friends, can I have a whiskey
because I won't drive far anyway.
Not since I have to go home that way,
by the scene of the getaway...
Geography and biology
just basically don't mesh for me..."
If you could only listen to one song for the rest of your life what would it be?
Heart of Gold by Neil Young.
