The band explained of some tracks.
“Hollow Eyes is the last song on our debut EP Fractured, finalising the overall theme of the EP with an attempt to reclaim peace and rebuild after trauma.”
“Picking Up the Pieces”
“Picking Up The Pieces is about recovering from a toxic situation. I reached a point in my life where I realized that the people I cared deeply about did not feel the same way towards me and I had two choices. I could try and fight back against the people that were causing me pain knowing full well that it wouldn't affect them, or I could say what I want to say, whether they listen or not, and walk away and take back the pieces of me that they stole.”
“This one's about seeing past the flaws in your loved ones and loving them for who they are, not the mistakes they make. Everyone struggles at some point in life, you may be the only life raft they have.”
