Virginia Wing’s last record opened its arms into euphoric light, private LIFE (released 12th February 2021 on Fire Records) invites you through a door and closes it. It examines what we’re doing at night, on our own, after work. What we do to enjoy ourselves, to cope, to be together, to be alone. It shines a dim blue light on what might be happening, causing us anxiety, stress, and desire. The act of making the music, and that this music is bright, unconfined, and joyous, speaks to the inherent therapy in the activities some humans need to actually deal with the things inside their heads. However, it doesn’t position itself in opposition to anything, nor does it seek to guide. The album was made for Virginia Wing, and now it’s for you.
