- Charlotte Lawrence explained track-by-track for the EP.
“Talk You Down”
“I could kind of place for myself, an emotion behind each song on the EP and then I attached a color for each emotion that I see. Cause I'm somebody that, I'm a very visual person and even when I write a song I can already start playing a music video or see what I want to be involved with the creative of the song. So Talk You Down is green and the emotion for me is anxiety which is what that song means to me…”
“I wanted to be a part of a song about anxiety and how I deal with it. Talking with someone about how you feel is a perfect way to get through any emotional experience.”

“The song is special to me. I consider it a sad song. The lyrics are about being done with a relationship – whether that's a romantic relationship, a friendship – and you're just ready for it to be over. You know it's the right thing to do, but you're going to be taking a while to get over it. In my heart, I'm a person who leans towards sad songs. That's the music I'm obsessed with, but I'm also someone who loves to dance and to be able to move to a song. I'm always split between the two. I wrote this song on the piano and wanted to keep that sad feeling attached, but also to be able to smile and move to it.”

“Ali Tamposi is one of the best writers I have ever worked with, she is talented beyond human measures, questionably an alien, and we came up with a cool metaphor based off of a relationship I was in at the time. We turned my story of this person not giving me any love or attention or time into an old school western Tarantino movie vibes song. If that makes any sense. And then Andrew Watt and Happy Perez came in and added the cooooolest sounds and instruments and blew all of our minds, geniuses.”

“I think everyone experiences dependency in one way or another, whether it be codependency in a relationship, addiction to drugs, alcohol, whatever it may be. That's why if I titled the song “our exes” all the lyrics would make sense. I can feel dependent on a substance or a human.”

“I write easier about sad emotions, I think it's so cool to have an upbeat song with dark lyrics.If you tap into an emotion then you can write a whole story. No matter what you're going through it's important to take risks with music. I never want to play it safe.”
