Polly Jean Harvey takes a deep breath as she steps from the hotel elevator shortly before mid night. The 25-year-old performer has just returned to London from the calm of her home in the picturesque Thomas Hardy countryside of southwest England, the incongruous setting where she writes about sexual and spiritual longing with a soul-baring intensity reminiscent of Courtney Love and Sinead O'Connor.
