“In moments of high stress, grief or imbalance in day to day life, we noticed our affinity with ghosts, afterlife or at least the presence of some ethereal energy, is always heightened. Something that really excites us is finding dialogue and scenery in feelings that feel hard to describe. Trying to figure out the words in those moments where the focus is locked in the atmosphere, rather than in the tangible.
This song was born out of one of those nights in mid-December, the festive season had truly kicked in but felt completely elsewhere. The TV was just background noise and sleep was a distant goal behind all anxious thoughts and the only solace was the company of a familiar spirit. We only had a verse for almost a year and it was a really cathartic process to return to a place of desperation, from a position of clarity and be able to leave that darkness behind respectfully.
So what was originally a dissection of a small moment, turned into acceptance of loss and appreciation for personal growth.”
