I just like that the title of this thread could accidentally also serve as the title of the Cities album.

I am sure a Copenhagen song was mentioned as well back then.

Possibly something along the lines of "Bridge to Copenhagen" - maybe that became Walk Me To The Bridge

Course we know, uef is just mucking about.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyffin_Williams

Edit: I just had to find that quote from an interview james did which was covered in the pod...

Quote:
I was in west Wales and I had this feeling where I didn't want to go back to London. I was really fighting not to go back.

I just felt like driving up to Anglesey to find Kyffin Williams. Just drive up to North Wales on the spot, make the three-hour journey and paint myself into a corner and never have to leave again. Almost in a metaphorical way, like the chorus says, I was trying to paint myself a different life so you can be captured in the painting and don't have to leave it.

For me, Kyffin Williams' paintings are the best way to describe Wales and my feeling towards it. His work is quite dark and there isn't much extracurricular detail, but they sum-up that sense of gravitational pull a place can have.

Inner eye opening to the stepped scarlet pyramid of the Eastern Seaboard Fission Authority burning beyond the green cubes of Mitsubishi Bank of America,
and high and very far away he saw the spiral arms of military systems, forever beyond his reach.
And somewhere he was laughing, in a white-painted loft, distant fingers caressing the deck, tears of release streaking his face.

Oh yeah, I should have linked.
I cribbed it from two sources.
