Songwriter Lora-Faye Åshuvud reflects on the creation of the track:"I wrote many of the lyrics for "Room" with a cut-up poem I made from an IKEA catalog, which is appropriate given that the song riffs on a feeling of domestic panic."
Arthur Moon is the moniker of composer/singer Lora-Faye Ashuvud, whose unconventional, polymathic approach to composition evokes the idiosyncratic ethos of bands like Radiohead, St. Vincent, and tUnE-yArDs. Ashuvud writes her lyrics using cut-up newspaper and magazine articles, and describes the process of composing the music as similarly collage-like. "On the best days," she said in a recent interview with LPR, "it feels kind of like playing a rousing game of Exquisite Corpse - except only with myself."
