It was written by Karl Gibson and Jessica Ijeoma Marie.
The pair said of the song, “It was the first song we wrote for the album, so it will always be special for us. We were testing out working together remotely. It just worked, so we built on that momentum and created the album.”
- The album features a host of stellar musicians, such as keyboardist Jackson Baird ,jazz trumpet and flugelhorn player Kevin G Davy, who has recorded and toured with Finley Quaye, Lamb, Adam F and Lemn Sissay's Secret Society; and award-winning bassist/double bassist Rio Kai who has performed with pillars of the jazz scene like Courtney Pine, Jason Yarde and Zoe Rahman.
The Sindecut member DJ Fingers said ofthe album, “This album is a long time coming. I think the time has allowed us to mature in how we want to sound, and we are just attempting to build on our momentum creatively and are forever grateful to be collaborating with the musicians we work with.”
Ijeoma added, “We paired the album with animations that interpret and bring to life the theme of each song on the record.”
