"We spent the winter listening to The shins. I spilled my heart to you, ill-preserved in bourbon and you would just listen "because that's what friends are for“. How could we ever afford both our apartment and our grocery bills? We were so undeserving of being grown up, the words stung as they passed my lips. But we got by."

The wide pallet of vocals, covering the range from clean to grunted to ear-piercing high-pitched, also contributes to the stunning compositions and supports the created atmosphere during each of the EP's 9 minutes.

"False hierarchy of man held up by those who suffer. Their bodies make up your throne. Their blood is on your hands. Feign ignorance, deny accountability for the murder of millions. Led to believe that the lives of others are less important than yours. "
