“I knew I wanted to write an album about something but had a hard time finding inspiration. But when the pandemic stopped the world, it gave me some much needed breathing room and got me thinking “since when are we in the future and how did we get here?” This was that lightbulb moment that freed me up to experiment with sounds and topics. From that point on, the album wrote itself.” ~ Daytona Starsky
