Pensive, profound and at once ostensibly urgent and unnerving, Romantic Notions captures the overwhelming intensity of obsessive love and control while sharing often-uncomfortable truths relating to women’s lived experiences; a ubiquitous theme throughout the Mere Women catalogue.
The album was written and rehearsed in a riverside cottage in Sydney and later recorded with Tim G Carr at One Flight Up studios in March, on the cusp of lockdown. The foreboding threat of lockdown left a peculiar feeling throughout the recording process, filling the air with a tremendous sense of uncertainty and giving the overall process an unusual edge.
