Songwriter Rennie Sparks of The Handsome Family talks of how the title of their 10th album ‘Unseen’ was inspired by an incident at an airport lounge when a middle-aged business person, McDonalds in hand, sat down on her lap, swearing that he thought the chair was empty. This gave rise to thoughts about being invisible, in the sense of disappearing as a songwriter and letting the songs take on a life and perspectives of their own.

The Handsome Family's new album "Unseen" is their first since TV show True Detective used their song, Far From Any Road as its opening theme. Unseen is 10 songs by a couple both world-famous and happily invisible. Each song on the record has a guiding colour (gold, silver, green, red, white). Rennie is also a painter known for her vivid and surprising use of colour, and she finds herself painting even when her brushes are made of words. The stories of Unseen are mostly inspired by real events.
