The Hampdens music is about absence, loss, disillusionment,
nuclear anxiety, unreachable glamour, burnt out Sundays, and
life as a social suicide ?but then again it抯 also about
beauty, youth, hope, re-enchantment, the washed-out dream-like
promise of suburbia, falling asleep on the lawn in the
sunshine, a stranger calling your name in the night, and
plunging your hands in the warm earth.
