The band commented:
I feel really grateful for the experience that was making this album. Full-length records have always been my favorite art form and to finally bring one into existence feels extremely cathartic. To me, this LP is the product of so many elements: heaps of melancholy rock worship (think Death Cab or Elliott Smith), dozens of college lectures spent writing lyrics, long walks alone, long drives with friends, abandoning any sense of ‘conventional,’ as well as my ever-changing understanding of human relationships, platonic or otherwise. I end up talking a lot about learning to value yourself, which wasn’t even a concept I went into writing this record with! These songs are my stream of consciousness from the past year and a half, AKA the ‘coming of age’ chapter. I’m still not sure if the chapter already existed or if building this album helped me realize it was there.
