“Marjorie is the most personal song of the record: it’s a story about my grandmother and also about me. We’re both looking through a window and feeling the same feelings. We never met, but in this song I feel very close to her. I had this image in my head of her, waiting for my grandad to come back from the pub, smoking cigarettes, and I saw myself reflected in this situation, and then the melody and lyrics “We seem to be making the same mistakes” came to my head.” – Nuria Graham
