“‘skellies’ set the foundation for the overall theme of this EP. It’s inspired by one of my personal worst periods. A time in my life where I was the most self conscious and struggled to ever be real and honest about anything. ‘Mama said I’m keeping the deposit’ as true as that statement and excitement was back then, for me represents the need to always seek approval. ‘Mama’ is an overused word throughout the EP, and represents my youthfulness but also fear of being real.”

“This video is about resisting the corrupt powers that try to control us by using fear. Putting a spotlight on how those powers escalate hate between people instead of cultivating peace. In this video we resist their attempts to silence our critique. The character is protesting those tainted powers by dancing his way through LA and occupying space in a peaceful way. He’s showing he is present, full of life, and not defeated by their darkness. He is very much present and alive and is inspiring others to feel the same.” – EREZ

“Every time something not-so-great happens in life, I just think to myself, ‘It’s okay, I’ll write a song about it.’ Songwriting is my therapy. It helps me release any emotions I don’t know how to express just by speaking. That’s why my songs are so dark. It’s the side of myself that I don’t often show to other people. I’m an open book, but I don’t let everyone read the chapters.”
