Andrea Stefancikova – The Essence of a Woman Growing Strong

At 34 years old I have been told that I am too old – I need to be smaller – my hair should be better. It is only now in my thirties that I feel myself coming alive as a woman. I feel really sorry for the young girls starting out in these situations. Though things are improving with more people recognizing a healthier lifestyle we are still so far from being there.

Wish That You Were Here – Behind the Song with Florence Welch

“The idea of time and longing and loss and sacrifice, which are all themes I use a lot in my work… The heart of it is about love and about missing people… What do you do for love? What do you let go of? What do you leave behind? Is it safer to just be on your own?”

In ‘Wish That You Were Here’, Florence Welch finds that, counter to her expectation, she yearns for companionship. This reflects the themes of family in the film, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, where you will hear this song feature over the final credits.

Florence collaborated with the film’s director, Tim Burton, in the making of this track of which she offered some insight into the lyrics:

“Having been on tour, I’ve lived in a sort of magical time bubble, where the days almost blend together. It’s amazing, but it comes at a cost — a cost of leaving the people you love behind for a year or two. You kind of feel like if you could sing a song into the wind, maybe the wind could take it to them in a way that you can’t with a text or a call. You just want to send your love in a different way, in a way to somehow reach the unreachable.”

“I’ve always been a huge fan of Tim Burton’s. We have a very similar sensibility. He feels like a ‘kindred spirit’ and I knew that we would get along really well. It’s the kind of dark, dark romance of his work—so beautiful and whimsical, but with an element of darkness to it. That’s something that I always try and achieve in my work, too. I feel like we’re coming from a similar place of quite frantic imaginations trying to get the words out before the pictures in our heads disappear.
I actually sent him a note about six years ago. I was in Australia on tour there for the first time and visited an exhibition of all his work. I wanted to leave him a message and all I had on me was an x-ray of my hand, as I had just broken my finger. So I wrote on the x-ray and gave it to the gallery to pass on and never knew if he got it. When we met for the first time, he told me it’s been hanging up in his office ever since.”
