midnight seeks to convey the feeling of the insomniac who finds magic in the haze of a late night. unable to sleep, but fixated on the beauty of the quiet. when the world is at it's lowest, the high of the night rises above the noise. the patter of a 2 AM spring shower, the slow rolling of streetlights on an empty interstate, and the smile of the moon as she looks down on the earth all give insight to the music.

. . . A burst of guitars at 01:28 coincides with a rising vocal presence, projecting a brightly melodic pull. A lusher, guitar-driven bridge plays nicely around the three-minute mark, after the chorus re-emerges. From here, Nichol’s fierce vocal presence and escalating guitar-driven fury reminds fondly of Grizzly Bear. The track plays and finishes with satisfactory melodic engagement.” - Mike Mineo

Obscure sound

‘jane’ is a track that generally feels more like an experience than merely a song. The track’s lyrics rely on layers and layers of nuance and interpretation and being pushed and pulled into different themes. It is a track that really leaves it up to you to interpret and mold it into what you would like it to mean to you.” - KIERAN ROGERS

jane grows to mean more to me the more I play it. I wrote it initially as a reflection on lust and consequence, but as the lyric developed I found my mind being pulled into multiple directions and onto different subjects. for me jane can be applied to depression, or being caught in an abusive (or unhealthy) relationship, or destructive loneliness that one can't seem to shake. to me, jane is a picture of how art and song can grow and change with the listener. I hope that you can receive something from the song that hasn't occurred to me yet.
