What was the inspiration/is there a story behind your track?

At the time the track was written, our lead singer Sam was having constant episodes of nightmares where he would see a man that would constantly push down on his throat. The lyrics in the verse talk about how he’s “Stuck in a dream with no control, he won’t let me free he’ll push down on my throat.” As the episodes continue, he becomes used to the fact that it’s a dream and tackles the problem by telling the listeners in the bridge of the song that “I’ll break you always to wake up from a haze, confused from the change back to reality again“.

What did your process involve?

Our writing process always begins with our bassist Santino & Drummer Oli starting a grove. Then Sam and Luke add in little guitar embellishments with Sam singing a few melodies over it.

Do you have a favourite line/section of the song?

It has to be the last drop where everything kicks off. Whenever we play it live the crowd goes mental.

Can you describe your sound in three words?

Shoegaze, dadswag & melancholic.

What’s the best thing about studying at BIMM?

The fact you can build so many connections that will help prepare you for the industry after you graduate.
