- She wrote about the song on Instagram:
"So I put out a little demo last night called Reasons Not to Die. I wrote it a year ago with my amazing friend @alexmaax at the helm, after a very testing quarter life crisis, and honestly a fear of releasing music again. It was the first thing I wrote after a bit of an existential melt down, with the first person I felt comfortable writing with. I wasn’t really into putting it out because it felt pretty raw and I wasn’t sure that people would care (plus it’s pretty heavy). My good friends at @neongoldrecords were kind enough to pressure me into releasing the demo on their 10 year anniversary compilation and I obliged with my heels in the dirt... But the response so far has been nothing short of miraculous, you guys are AMAZING and I have missed you so much. Thank you for sharing so many of your stories with me. .
The song was originally written as an apology to my friends @zach_solomonnyc , @fuego_z , and @abxyles for being an ass hat on my birthday in the thick of a depressive episode, and not allowing all of the good to cut through my mental sludge. It’s a thank you and an apology to all of the people I love who have loved me through a very transitive period and stayed by my side regardless of my wild child antics. Lol.
Anyways... if you wanna hear it I’m posting the link in my bio, and I think u can pretty much find it anywhere. So here’s a little unfinished song for you all to hold you off, and new music is coming. Love you."
