«In the night, back at our lakeside camp, I make a field recording of Elle Kokkonen together with the musician Ivan Afanasyev of Love Cult. We are standing on a pier by the lake out in the wind and rain. She sings a tune she made inspired by the day in Apatity, the concrete, the grey matter, it is like a howl in the wind, strong and vulnerable at the same time.

The lyrics are a unique blend of English, Finnish and Lappish. The tiny being that she is, fills the void for a moment while the waves break.»

– Alexander Viken, UnCapitals Tour 2015
