Jigsaw (Single, 2020)
Imagine the ideal. Imagine pure beauty, what ever that may be to you. Imagine perfection, unreachable but still hauntingly beautiful. Always too far out to have.
Now what if this ideal reality started to crack, lose its charade? What if bliss had actually always been in our reach but we just never tried?
This song is begging for those things to keep their mystery, so we can keep peace for a bit longer. So we are not tortured by our worries, that it was our own fault. That we could have, should have been a braver version of our selves.
Vision (Single, 2019)
But the second you reach this state of absolute perfection you know you will be forced to admit that it can never be true. This means you can never have it because if this ideal loses its all-possessing glory you have to acknowledge your personal inadequacy.
We tried to capture this existential conflict by giving the song a dreamy, mellow sound held together by the guitars staccatto picking. Slowly building up Visions erupts in the moment the character realises this dissociation, ending with the plea for the ideal to never change.
Bring It On (Single, 2019)
We tried to capture this dreadful calmness, the mental buildup and the storm you encounter when you finally address these issues.
