See My Girls EP

City Slang

Released: 14th February 2020

“’See My Girls’ is a song about isolation, tourism, migration, and as part of No Treasure but Hope about the beauty and terror of the world,” says Staples. “It was written on Ithaca and from the perspective of a small island, looking out with wonder and apprehension across the sea and beyond. The film is a collaboration with my daughter Sidonie Osborne Staples. After much preparation and experimentation, she made a continuous, layered illustration of her interpretation of the song, around 50mm high and 3m in length.”
