The tracks on this EP depict my journey through this extremely exhausting period. When I record and write, I usually have people around me, but for this project, I was by myself with a pen and a microphone because I was learning how to record myself in a studio at the same time as I was creating it, so I was able to release all of my pent-up emotions into it.
