” Alot of people move on from their first but have trouble seeing their new relationship as actually someone new. I believe everyone wants something out of a relationship and until they find it , they will always be confused on if they are the right person for them.”

“This track definitely is different from everything I have ever put out. I used to stick to pretty basic rapping, only utilizing my voice to spit rhymes rather than melodies. However, as time went on, I realized I had the capability to sing (Lowkey was tone-deaf for three years, which is crazy how I can sing now) so I wanted to utilize my voice in different ways, so ‘perfect’ was the best track to start experimenting on.”

“It was important to highlight some traditionally Chinese objects as well as the ones that are thought to be “American.” The title itself is also a double entendre of sorts – fortune cookies are not a traditionally Chinese creation, but neither am I.”

“There’s a lyric in the song which I feel that for years I was trying to sum up that feeling. Going to a party with expectations of maybe falling in love with somebody, but then there’s somebody else, and it usually ends up in tears. The lyric is, ‘Perfecting the art of an Irish goodbye, leaving the party with tears in your eyes’. I think that’s my favorite lyric, and I’m excited for people to hear that.”

“You know, it’s not a concept album, it’s not like telling some linear story, but there’s a theme to it. The theme is really just kind of playing off that general anger of where I was at in my life. The blood just kind of came with it. It was a motif that kind of sprung from all of that and I noticed as I was writing more lyrics it started popping up more. 

Eighty Ninety Interview
“We feel really grateful to have those relationships — and try our best to be those people for our friends and loved ones, too. The song is about being thankful for that person who is there for you, and also a promise to be there for them.”
Peach Pit Interview
“It’s just nice to have something that you can put on and sing along to, and kind of forget about your problems. Also even to put on a song and kind of lean into your problems a little bit, really just feel the shittiness of them or something. That’s what music helps me do. I hope people can find that in our album as well.”
Windmills and Giants Interview
“I think a lot of people have this romantic idea of songwriting, where a song just pops into your head while you’re sleeping and all of a sudden you have the next ‘Wonderwall’ on your hands. Some songs do come easy, but it sometimes feels like your smashing your head against a brick wall, banking on not being the first to break.”
Joel Christian Interview
“I wanted to write a song that truly captivated the energy and the way I feel when I get anxiety. I had this picture in my head of my anxiety chasing me like something from a horror film – but then I was like, let’s make this into a pop song!”
Jacob Dixon Interview
“On one hand, I don’t want to let life pass by and not take risks, go on adventures, chase dreams.  I think it would be easy for me to just try and live a comfortable life. Later on, I think I would regret being scared to take risks.”
Chelsea Cutler Interview
“The album took about a year and a half to make. For the most part, I didn’t really put any kind of pressure on myself to adhere to a timeline. I create pretty rapidly, so I knew ultimately that it would come together. 
Blushed Interview
“We think that all five of the songs on the EP are really representative of the past two years we have been together, this release is about six months overdue and we are definitely ready to put it out. We are all super excited to perform this set now” 
Darling West Interview
 “Love songs have maybe never been our strongest suit. We tend to shy away from the task in fear of too many clichés, blunt lyrics and general awkwardness. But this song idea came together in the kitchen one day, in an honest moment of reflection around the beauty and privilege of having found someone to love and belong to.”
Sonali Interview
 “Life can trick you into feeling isolated sometimes, but truthfully so many of us share similar experiences. I want my music to be a friend to people when they might feel like they have nowhere else to turn.”
Tag Interview
 “So there were times when it felt a lot more like work, and I didn’t feel the bliss and joy that comes with sitting down and putting my fingers on the keys. Mostly it’s just life, I try to catch it when it comes.”
Curty Interview
“It [the EP] is really just a reflection of who I think I am. A little bit of some unhealthy overanalyzing. Trying to be certain about things I know I’ll never be certain about.”
Secret Nudist Friends Interview
“What we really want to be is Secret Nudist Friends, our authentic selves. We’re not trying to be the next Tame Impala, we’re not trying to emulate anybody, we’re just writing songs and they’re coming out as us.”
Caracara Interview
“What’s more of a priority to us than genre is that every song covers a lot of sonic geography. We like moments that are super quiet, we like moments that are super big, and that’s a big part of our live set too.

Corey Kilgannon Interview
I think “we all see the same things different ways” is a pretty major thesis for the album, seeing yourself as one small perspective on a planet of billions is humbling and ought to inspire us to grow in compassion for the many who are less fortunate.
“What we enjoy the most about playing in a band is the fun we get to have while doing it. A lot of our songs have little things in them that bring us joy to play. These little nuggets are just one of the many things that puts big smiles on our faces at each and every show we play.”
Hotbed Interview
“We’re more than a band. We all live together, we all left Delaware and moved to Philly without jobs together. It sounds corny, but we’re like family. It’s more than getting together with the band and practicing. It kind of our life, and that’s a cool thing.
MILKK Interview
…long story short what started as kind of a goofy side project thing became a real focus and here we are.”

“In many ways I believe the songs I wrote for Busyhead have allowed me to see my problems and my anxieties for what they really are: problems. For so long I have carried these issues around like they are part of the fabric of my soul and spirit, or some fundamental flaw that I’ll never be able to vanquish, that when I finally saw them, on paper, and saw the connection so many people have had to them, they have lost some of that gravity.

“A lot of people are very attracted to that, to our intimacy. I think a lot of people are really hungry for that and maybe in their own lives too. So, to see two people on stage feeding each other, we can also feed them.”

“I’m just going to get back into making music every day, that’s what I’ve been doing for the past week, regardless of what it is and just getting back into album mode and just focusing on the music.” 

 “It’s a scary thing to put yourself out there because you’re thinking what are people going to think and you start comparing yourself to other people. But I decided, what was there to lose?”

“My favorite part about making music is the process of playing with sounds and combining them until they say something to me. And then I get to lay my take on what the sounds make me feel. I feel like the way I write is very call and response, between me and the sounds I’m singing over.”
