“Nymphea” was written beside jagged water lilies suspended over emerald swamp rhizomes; tiny mystics domes foaming intricate hiss lake hiccup spit floating amorphous euphoric masses of wild hearts secreting white orifices arched and thrusted towards the light and spread out like across the lake,” Jarvis and Lightman said of the spot in nature where the song was inspired. “[The song is] an ode to erotic wonder; wandering the elastic nomadic plains where home is a far off floating flower and tethered by an encoded longing an ecstatic refrain.”

Banned was recorded in the tranquil environment of the Tree Museum, an outdoor art gallery in rural Ontario hosting residencies for contemporary sculptors over the past 20 years. Beyond leaving the city behind to live alone in the woods, the album title Banned also highlights an element of risk. Like late ’60s counterculture musical Hair, the duo reject notions of repression with unspoken celebrations of naturalism, openness, and sexual liberation. These 15 songs offer an ephemeral intimacy and invitation to express free love that can only occur when artists welcome listeners into their private world.

“Ecstasy is perverse and sacred,” says Jarvis. “To display ecstatic joy like we do on this album is a vulnerable thing. First and foremost it’s about our desire for creative expression and the curiosity around that. It should be censored, but it won’t be.”
