The interview was accompanied with an understated photoshoot by photographer Elizabeth Weinberg, and the elegant photos surfaced today (via GomezGallery).

■ Ever heard of a song called “The Hardest Thing” by Tony Primo and Nixxie from the new indie film Partisan? You’re not alone, and today (Sep. 30), the blogosphere finally discovered who’s behind it despite living online for over five months.
The movie premiered at Sundance earlier this year, but gets a proper release Oct. 2. In the credits are Tony Primo and Nixxie, but we now know Nixxie is actually Swedish pop singer Robyn and Joseph Mount is Tony Primo from the electronic band Metronomy.
The music video accompanying the song is in line with the ’80s vibe and sound. In other words: bonus Robyn!
