Pixie Geldof pays poignant musical tribute here to her late sister Peaches. Pixie's elder sister was found dead at her home in Wrotham, Kent on April 7, 2014. An inquest found that Peaches, who was just 25 at the time, died of a heroin overdose.
Wish I'd known you like my own skin So I could feel the hurt you were in Wish we had that twin thing
Pixie addresses Peaches directly here. "The lyrics are a reference to how they say twins can feel each other," she explained to NME. "We were very close. When I wrote it I didn't realize what was going on for at least the first verse. I remember being surprised."
Geldof said writing the song was "very precious, and it was important to be accurate and to do it justice. It was difficult."
It was even more difficult for Geldof when it came to recording the song in LA in the fall of 2015 for her I'm Yours album. "Going back to it was tough," she said. "Having to sing it again, and bring my brain back to it, was harder than I anticipated."
Becca from TexasMuch respect to the Geldof Clan and my deepest condolences. I love your sound Pixie it is so unique and your words cut deep to the sting of addiction and the pain that it causes when we lose someone from it. Job well done. Can't wait to hear more from you!
