“February was written... last February,” explains Victoria, “in a state of dissociation, living in a city I didn’t know and travelling several times a week through big and small stations late at night, midwinter. Sometimes the trains worked, sometimes they didn’t. I wrote it all in one go the morning after a gig (not mine) in Huddersfield. Little Ray – I have no idea where that came from. I was in that between-sleep-and-wake state and some lyrics floated into my mind; for once I was just awake enough to write them down. I didn’t dare switch the light on, but I was careful to write them large enough so that when I found them scrawled across the page the next morning I had a chance of making sense of it. The rest I pulled out of a strange sort of ‘future-thinking’ workshop I had been to; it
had given me an odd feeling of not being part of the thing I was meant to be part of.”
