Love Of My Life

Album: One Breath (2013)
  • Anna Calvi's One Breath album features an assortment of feelings, ranging from the grunge tone of this song to much more tender moments. "I think I wanted there to be a combination of ugliness and beauty on the record, and for there to be some extreme emotions," explained Calvi to The Glasgow Evening Times. "A lot of the songs have that idea in them, like 'One Breath' or 'Love of My Life' - it's quite extreme."

    "Something like Love of My Life was definitely a fun one to record as it's a song about desire, so I wanted it to be aggressive and fevered, as that suited the story of the song," she added. "The music should tell the story as much as the lyrics."
