When I brought this song to the band, Joe (keys) asked me what it was called. “Don’t know yet.” I honestly didn’t know and through that exchange realized what it was about. Putting down the controller and jumping into the unknown without any fear. Stay present and don’t let the all the possible scenarios guide you to something low common denominator. Happy accidents like this are pretty much how SSPU functions most of the time.
This song was written with an acoustic guitar and the string melodies in mind. After having purposefully removed anything organic on the previous albums, we knew we wanted to dive into the deep end of all things warm and wooden on this record. It clearly has a nostalgic tone to it with a little future tech sprinkled in. I left a lot of room open for Nikki to really move around and slither her way through the vocal gaps.
