In March 2015, someone I loved took his own life. I don't think I'll ever forget how I felt that day. Initial shock, to anguish, denial and immense guilt. I battled with my own dark thoughts for a long time afterward. That's what I wanted to express in this EP. It has a very different sound to my first album "The Pornographer" despite having many overlapping themes. From medicating myself to sleep so I wouldn't have to deal with my feelings, to feeling rage at my own oblivious ignorance to what he had been planning, this EP I hope captures the raw emotions I've felt in the last two years.
In "The Note" I sang: "You learn who you are through your scars" and I've found this to be very true. Despite the crippling sadness and regret, I feel I've become a stronger character. Life is too important and precious to waste it. So listen to others with an open heart; Try and understand how they feel. Most importantly, if you ever lose someone you care for deeply, know that the pain eases in time. It truly does get better.
