Dream Boy

"Dream Boy" was inspired by summer love - it is a song about being jaded to the idea of falling for someone again after being heartbroken in the past. It's about giving into the butterflies in your stomach even when love seems so scary at times.

Pink Leather Jackets

With the age of online “please-screw-me” dating apps, infidelity seems to be trendy so “Shed” is inspired by the perspective of “the other man” who is fed up with his lying three-timing side. Feel free to break shit while listening to this song.
