These tightly wound lyrics examine the dark history of a dictatorship through the lens of motherhood while invoking the pastoral as a metaphor for loss, and the overwhelming human will to survive what has scarified us. By exposing the named and nameless stolen babies of Franco’s long regime, Burwick is able to tap into personal and universal fears of rearing children in the face of violence, forgery, and absolutism.
