Burnt Hibiscus began as a project to combine the surrealistic poetry of Erin Armstrong with the sublime vocal stylings of Sheela Bringi. The lyrics for the suite are meant to serve as an unsentimental love letter to Los Angeles by highlighting the hypnagogic quality of life as an artist in the southland.
