Album: Quiet Signs (2019)

Songfacts®:

  • Jessica Pratt recorded Quiet Signs with her musical and romantic partner Matthew McDermott. The Los Angeles artist told Q magazine she would set the bare bones of each song and then they would throw some color onto it. She cites this track as particularly benefiting from the studio treatment. "It was pretty major," she said." I'm not even sure who had the idea to do two full-length organ parts that are not together and sort of flipped but that was fun and unexpected."
