Basia Bulat is a distinctive singer and musician based in Toronto, ON. Over the past decade, she’s released three acclaimed albums and won praise for her impassioned voice and emotive songwriting. Her latest record is a lovely and intricate one called Tall Tall Shadow, it’s out now courtesy of Secret City Records, and sends her out on tour across North America and Europe in the coming months. Here Basia and I discuss the mood and motifs on this record, her connection to Montreal and Arcade Fire (Tim Kingsbury and engineer Mark Lawson produced her latest effort), her love of pop music, her history as a musician, what she makes of external perceptions of her work, her current and future plans, the song “Promise Not to Think About Love,” and much more.
