track name | dissolve me
this particular track hits home for me harder than most. it describes a childhood routine shared between one of the band members and his ma where they used to play a game about a day out at the beach. eventually, after describing all of the different people they saw, things they did, foods they ate, etc., the child would fall asleep to the sound of the mom making ocean sounds. i have similarly awesome memories of bedtime stories and days at the beach with my ma - so, when i layer that imagery with the very organic folk and indie sound, the massive synths and the crooning vocals, let’s just say it takes me to a better place.
