Talking about the making of ‘Unfold You’, Rostam says, “Even though Haim’s ‘Summer Girl’ came out within a few months of us starting to record it, ‘Unfold You’ took years. In some ways it had to— because the recording of the song tracks an evolution and a personal metamorphosis. As I write this, I’m finishing a record that deals intrinsically with the subject of change and change was what I was feeling personally and searching for musically. In the summer of 2016, I was sitting on a park bench on Commercial street in Provincetown, Massachusetts. I found myself in conversation with a stranger who left me with a piece of advice that has stuck with me. ‘Change is good,’ he said, ‘Go with it.’”
Accompanied by a new vid starring actress Hari Nef, Rostam adds, “Hari and I found ourselves in the same quarantine pod in Massachusetts this past July. We also found we had a bunch in common, having gone to the same college nine years apart.”
