- Priya Ragu told Clara Amfo, “Basically I've been like touring, playing a lot of festivals, and was working on new songs at the same time. And sometimes you kind of forget to consciously breathe. And some of the sometimes you just have to step back and inhale and exhale, just to tune in with yourself.”
