sometimes... the state you’re in isn’t quite the picture you try to paint. you go party, what are you partying for? what are you celebrating? party is also a part of grief. i did my grieving and found growth in pain. one thing i’ve learned in the process is that the only constant thing in life is change. and pain can lead to the most amazing changes. this ep expresses some of my deepest fears, emotions, conundrums, mantras and dilemmas of the past year. it’s pure storytelling. i don’t care about your trends and your approval. i needed to make this ep and put it out. the deed is done. hope you enjoy it.
