"Two Dollar Coat" features a minimalistic approach. Brick Blair plays calming chords, his almost soothing voice asks retorical questions about how we see people around us and if we truly are capable of offering any help.
: "I specifically wrote it about my fiancée who, at the time, had just graduated in Effects for Performing Arts, only to enter an industry that was on its knees due to COVID. The song is written as a pick-me-up, offering reassurance to believe in yourself and your journey. I think a lot of people would benefit from that right now." Anthony Rubery
"I’d written a fair few songs about heartbreak and loss, and I wanted to focus my next batch of material on happier subjects! So... Pour is a love song about lots of the feel-good things in life - from new love, to sugar, dancing, drinking, and fun! Love is love and there is always room to POUR more of it around!" Alice Offley
Mary Ellen's music has a playful tone that cleverly hides what the song is really about. In the case of "Catch-22", the thoughtfully constructed harmonic vocals that flow up and down as if they were a commercial jingle and the minimalistic instrumentation create a catchy melody. However, Mary Ellen has more tricks under her sleeve.
"I wrote this song together with tine. And she had the first idea and we create this whole song. It's about the feeling when you're on the first dates with someone but you don't know how exactly what they're feeling about you. But you really feel a deep connection." Alycce
“I continue to write songs for our band and it really is a pleasure to work with my friends as I do. There is nothing I am more proud of than the progress we made and will make as a band and as homies. Our plan is to simply get more advanced with our instruments and enjoy the process as we go,” one of the band members from 2AMature says.
"I was struggling with undiagnosed mental health issues when I wrote this song, which I view as a letter to my happier self, the “cherry picker,” whom I felt abandoned me while I was at my lowest. I wanted desperately to get my sunny disposition back. I’ve since started therapy and have realized that happiness and sadness are not mutually exclusive—I am both a happy and sad person, and feeling both emotions so deeply has led me to become the person and artist I am." Heddy Edwards
"For the past two years the world has needed us to stay apart from one another. 'Never Minded Being Alone (but lately)' is a song about love in a time of disconnection," Nick Cheshire / Indigo Daydream
“It is really about how sometimes we rely on pain to feel alive, and unrequited love can be very painful. I think most of us have been there. And in the song I represent it in a look to those brown eyes, that make you feel in love and in pain on equal parts, but definitely alive,” says Mike de Lis / Mono XL
