Inspired by melodic dubstep, trap elements, and wave music the duo wanted to capture different dramatic dynamics from these varying genres while using layering techniques pulled from melodic bass styles to really build up the song and highlight the breakdowns.
They then brought on singer-songwriter Kate Foster for toplining who added a powerful and longing vocal to the heavy-hitting track. The song expresses a dark melancholic undertone all while being somewhat hopeful. The lyrics talk about pain, heartbreak, and uncertainty, while the instrumental takes the listener for a ride, flowing between gentle verses and dirty dubstep drops.
Yami reflects that “This experience taught me so much about myself and my love for music. Through months of collaboration between the three of us, I think we were able to create something very special”. Yami reflects
“One particularly exciting moment for me about this song was when we first got the initial draft of the vocals from Kate. I think we were both blown away with the talent and potential, and knew with her help we could really create a quality track together. Overall, I think we meshed our strengths well and had a great collaborative experience”. – MAZZA adds
