Background[edit]

The album was named after the eponymous actress, Blake Hazard told Indy Week’s Chris Parker: "We mostly wrote and recorded the album over the course of last summer, so it was kind of the honeysuckle weeks, though it's actually the name of a British actress. We just saw her name in the credits one night from something we were watching and thought it was the most charming name ever. And it kind of reflects the summery feeling we were having".[2]

An instrumental cut of "You, Me and the Bourgeoisie" is used in the worldwide commercials for Apple's iPhone 3G. Apple also used "Submarine Symphonika" in their iPhone 3GS commercials.[3] "Submarine Symphonika" also uses audio from the Swedish Rhapsody Numbers Station, found on The Conet Project.

The song "Xavia" is also included on the soundtrack to the film Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist.[4]
