“I moved to the country a few years ago after living in cities for most of my life,” the band’s Shana Cleveland explains. “Being out in the middle of nowhere makes it easy to imagine how it would be possible to leave society all together. I love how in this track some of the most unnatural elements of the arrangement (synthesizers, fuzz, effects) create an atmosphere around the instruments that ends up feeling very natural - I can hear bugs buzzing around and bird sounds in different directions.”
