I wrote one of the questions you quote. I've been a redditor for a long time, and I love her work, hence follow her on her social media, she advertised her ama and I asked a question. That's pretty much it...

You're right... I asked one of the first questions because I was waiting for this AMA. I don't work for her, I just like her work. And my question is getting downvoted even though her answer was genuine.

Thank you for answering! As a follow-up, do you feel that your littérature and your poetry, (and I think you're staging a play?), goes hand in hand with your music, or do you feel that it's a different thing all together?

Hi Kate, big fan of your work. I saw you for the first time in Rennes at the Transmusicales, then 4 more times until a couple of weeks ago at the Point Éphémère in Paris. A lot of people love you in France, even if sometimes we don’t fully understand your words. I guess your art also speaks to me on a physical level when it gets too challenging for me as english is not my native language.

I’m thirty-one years old and I sometimes have issues with artist that are from my generation and that are presented as a voice for my generation. Whether it be Xavier Dolan, Damien Chazelle ou Lena Dunham for example. I didn’t like their vision of the world, I didn’t like what they were trying to communicate to the world, and I felt disconnected politically, well I fet they were becoming disconnected. But with you, I feel that I finally found someone who can carry our voices, and you do it with such passion, strength and poetry. In People’s Faces you say a line that goes « All I’ve got to say has already been said. I mean you heard it from yourself when you were lying in bed and couldn’t sleep thinking ‘couldn’t we be doing this differently ?’ ». I guess this line stuck with me because it represents the relationship I have with your art : you carry a voice that exists deep down inside a lot of people, and I want to thank you for that.

Now for a question. It seems, in this last record, that the words are a little less connected from the music, almost sometimes voluntarily out-of-synch. Do you progressively feel liberated from musical conventions ? Do you feel that you are in a progressive process through your music, and that with each album you are moving a little closer to something that you are looking for, or instead is each album a new beginning ?

Thanks again !
