This and That

Alt-J – Matilda

Most Alt-J songs I had to listen repeatedly to really appreciate but with Matilda, it was love at first listen. I just learned today that this song is actually about the relationship between Mathilda and Leon from the movie Léon: The Professional. More trivia: their song Taro is about Robert Capa and Gerda Taro, two war photographers who are famous for their coverage of the Spanish civil war in the 1930s. Their (Capa and Taro’s) story is rather fascinating.
