This is a demo written in the Motherhood era that didn't make the final cut:

"This was a total one-take-stream-of-consciousness demo that I wrote and recorded in December 2016. There were no lyrics, no planning; I just let the "tape" roll and played whatever I was feeling.

I sat with the track for a year but couldn't figure out where to take it next. I've known Daryl (Palumbo) and TJ (Penzone) for like 20 years, as a good chunk of my younger years was spent in Long Island going to hardcore shows. I ran into TJ on the Quicksand tour and we talked about how him, Daryl and I should try working together on music. We remotely started playing around with the track and I sent them my "stream of consciousness" files. The vocal take on there is the first and only one I did. They added so many new sounds and dimensions. and it really began to shine.

For whatever reason, it didn't get worked on any further during the Motherhood sessions. I keep coming back to it all these years later, loving how both incredibly rough and soaring it sounds at the same time. I don't think this is the last we'll see of this tune."

shoegaze, but a stylistically omnivorous expansion that ekes into trip hop, trance and nu-metal. Bio by Sadie Dupuis
