Lisa Hannigan – Undertow (Official Video)

  • This is a track from Lisa Hannigan’s third album, At Swim. She recorded the record with The National’s Aaron Dessner in a New York church.
  • This was the song that took the longest to get right. Dessner explained to “It existed as a first verse curse for a long time. I had a verse or two but nothing felt right as a chorus so it was in danger of never seeing the light of day. I really liked the verses though so always hoped I could work out a way of finishing it. Then, long after the rest of the songs were recorded I went around to my friend Iain Archer’s house and we finally figured it out! I went over to Aaron and put it down just in time to have it on the record.”
