we had this beat finished up in the summer of 2019, and we were together in Chicago to see Lollapalooza (which was incredible - and very hot) when we were able to confirm getting Emilia on this track with us. it was a great news to add to an amazing trip! when we made the instrumental we had the idea of two opposites being together or portraying some sort of dichotomy, which we think comes through in comparing the bright choruses to the brooding verses. Emilia picked up on that right away and added the perfect lyrics, melody, and vocal performance, and even helped us restructure the track a bit to really emphasize the stark contrast between the verses and hooks. we're super happy with how this one turned out, it's unique and a bit of an emotional roller coaster :) hope you can relate and that it brings you mad joy!!
