“The song is about insecurity and not feeling sure you’re being honest with your love. Like he’s got a secret world when he’s dreaming that you’re not a part of, and you wonder if it’s more than just dreams.”
“Say It Now’ is about that helplessness of realising something is over before it’s even been said. The frustration of knowing that something isn’t right, but not know-ing what that something is. I really wanted to tap into that almost ‘pre break-up’ mindset; two people both dancing around the idea that it’s not working without ever looking at it face on, finally hitting that breaking point of I don’t even care that it might hurt, I just need to know. It’s about that moment of complete vulnerability that comes with that.”
Dark and richly textured pop.

“Feeling lonely is one of the most common human feelings, right? Well, being a musician doesn’t really help. Your whole life is constantly moving and the only thing that remains is yourself. And dealing with yourself, oh gosh, we all know how boring and angering that can be. ‘Riding Solo’ is about this. about us. Perpetually on the move, being everywhere and nowhere at the same time. Surrounded by strangers most time of the day, being 9 hours time difference from our people and what we call home, living and dying por y para la música.”
Track of the week. Hard-hitting lyrics matched with a complex beat structure.
