“This track was made with Mondo Loops over Discord. This year has gone by so fast, and so we wanted to capture the melancholic feeling of fleeting moments and time passing. Mondo had sent me the main guitar, to which I added drums, percussion, keys and more. We passed the stems back and forth before it was finished. I think the track has a lot of emotion, and I love how soft it is!”
“The goal for this track was really to record the soft dreamy guitar tones that I love playing, and give them a more bright upbeat feel. Layering bright keys with the upbeat drum groove and the soft guitar ended up working so perfectly and melting together.”
