I interviewed The Band Perry about their new album Pioneer over at Renowned For Sound…
“BT: Kimberly, in the video for If I Die Young you’re holding a copy of a book of poems by Alfred Lord Tennyson as you float in the boat, which seems to be a homage to floating down a river like the Lady of Shalott. Would you describe yourselves as a band that are especially literary?
KP: Yes, it was a tribute to that, and also to Anne of Green Gables. Anne certainly was one of the characters in literature who I feel helped shape my personality. And yes, I was reading the poem Lady of Shalott around the time I wrote If I Die Young so yes it was definitely an inspiring piece of work…”
