“I was thinking about how it feels so easy to say to someone else “it’s going to be okay” but I know personally when I’m dealing with anxiety, someone telling me it’s going to be okay really means nothing to me.”


What emotion was most present in the making of this?
Anxiety, a feeling of being lost.

What was the biggest personal challenge you had to overcome in the making of this?
This sounds pretty stupid but honestly the glockenspiel part on the bridge of this song ahahha. I think that part was the hardest thing I’ve ever musically had to do. I am not very good at glockenspiel.
What was your favourite part of producing this?
When we were in the studio with this song myself and our drummer mike were having a lot of fun playing around with the synths. We were both pretty green at the time when it came to synths but we knew we wanted this song to feel really airy and dreamy so we would double team playing the synth part, I would play the keys, he would turn the nobs, it was pretty great.

“Give me some of my own medicine” – what would you say your medicine is?
I guess when I was writing this song it was kind of in the context of dealing with the mental health of many of my friends. I was thinking about how it feels so easy to say to someone else “it’s going to be okay” but I know personally when I’m dealing with anxiety, someone telling me it’s going to be okay really means nothing to me. “My own medicine” I guess just really means to say my own flaws.

“It’s a sort of therapy for me I guess, turning words that are from heavy dark places and taking them into a new soft light space, kind of makes me feel in control.”

How did the emotions while writing a song and then producing it overlap to make it what it is now?
In a lot of our music I really like to take songs that I wrote while in quite a dark place and make them into more airy light pop pieces. When we were in the studio with this song it became quite clear to me that I wanted to approach it that way, I wanted it to feel light like floating on a cloud. It’s a sort of therapy for me I guess, turning words that are from heavy dark places and taking them into a new soft light space, kind of makes me feel in control.
