"This is something that Dave and I kind of inherited from that tradition," she says. "As a duet, you do everything in your power to change the texture of what you're doing — you're constantly fighting stasis. You only have four things" — two guitars, two voices. "This is part of why we gravitated to the dissonance in our music — why Dave will often sing dissonant intervals."
In a lot of ways, this duo — two nocturnal musicians who walk around their adopted hometown of Nashville after midnight, dreaming of the ghost of the Everly Brothers, Elvis Presley and Hank Williams — has come full circle.
