Lyrically, I had been reflecting on childhood friendships and I realized what I had experienced at a young age was real, true love. Nothing romantic, because I was too young to even have a concept of that but I just remember how I wanted to spend every moment I could with these people. So, I had just written very stream of conscious kind of thoughts on this topic, this newly minted realization, rearranged some lines and settled pretty quickly on what you hear.
Musically, I had been experimenting with alternate tunings to bring out new musical ideas. It worked! but I was stuck after two verses...My songwriting instincts told me to write a bridge and I tried! I really did! When things don't come easy, I don't force it. I had always been allured to the connection of folk and electronic/ambient. I feel like it's not an area that is fully explored. I had the idea, technically it seemed easy and plausible, and the results were pretty satisfying.
I also should add that the inspiration to go the ambient path was in part due to the cover art. The art was made early on and I loved the sort of portal to "nostalgia melancholy" (that's the name of the EP) you see on the cover. So I created an entry point (the intro to the first song on the EP) and an exit point (the ambient section to "We Might").
