"What If You Fly" creates a sonic space that transforms and grows more and more elaborate with each passing moments of the track. Starting in a minimalistic, and yet extremely atmospheric scene, the guitars establish a sweet melodic leitmotiv that repeats throughout the track, which creates a sense of nostalgia, like a lingering memory where we slowly begin to remember more details.
"Fractals is mainly inspired by my mini obsession with repeating patterns. I've got a journal at home where I fill in a few lines for each day of the year over a 5 year period.

I found this quite fascinating and wanted to represent it in some sort of musical way." Michael Donoghue

"This track is about procrastinating at work or home, when you can end up surfing the internet for hours without even noticing. This track tries to capture the psychedelic aspect of 'losing hours and hours' of time to a surplus activity, hence the title, and the trippy guitar riff that comes in. The style of the track acts as a juxtaposition to the mood of the lyrics." - Panthalassa
“Hailing Ishimura exists to tell a story. The part of the story that ‘We Did It To Survive’ exists in finds our adventurers at their lowest point. The music very much informs that with the dark tones and heavy riffs,” Hailing Ishimura
