I’m not really a songwriter Like I used to be Playing keys in the Nutty Nut Nerds seems to be my peek At least I was present At least I felt there I remember choosing three notes Randomly Driving in my car, I woke up Half asleep Living in a fog-land Hard to lock eyes Talk about dissociative disorders On the couch Tally your mental health Rate the questions from 1 to 10 Do you ever feel you can’t Keep up with the conversation? Do you ever watch yourself walk around In a dream? I’m afraid of losing you I’m afraid of losing you I’m afraid of losing you

about

This EP explores dissociation, loss, and the quest for self-love. Working with sound artist Ryan Albert, we used tape recordings as a way to manipulate voice and instrumentation. To highlight a sense of detachment from the day-to-day, the slow, slightly lower drawl of the voice represents what it feels like to be in a state of persistent, mild delirium.


The saturated, tape distorted quality of the recordings evokes a sense of nostalgia, while also separating listener from original sound, the same way someone experiencing dissociation and loss is separated from regularity. In this way, the main inspiration for this EP is to capture a realization of warped reality; fragmented, but still conscious, the lyrics examine difficult feelings.
