Laura Palmer

“I was writing it and watching a lot of Twin Peaks, I’m quite obsessed with David Lynch and it emerged from there. I wanted to clunkily nod to David Lynch and Twin Peaks and the slightly weird, eerie atmosphere of it all. [“Laura Palmer” was the name of the murdered girl from David Lynch’s supernatural mystery series Twin Peaks – Ed].”Dan Smith (23)


“I was reading about what happened in Pompeii. Famously the city was dug up and the people who were wiped out by the volcano and the people were still in the poses they were in when they died. I thought that was an interesting image, a really happy one as well. So the song is just imagining a conversation between two of those people.”Dan Smith (24)
