“We don’t usually write songs inspired by a specific situation. Instead, we write about feelings or themes in general, like love, loss, and anxiety, that are universal truths. We want listeners to interpret our songs in a way that’s meaningful or helpful to them,” says drummer Sean Whiteman.
“Lyrically, ‘Symphonies’ is about the dread of a souring relationship. The symphony’s playing, but the narrator’s voice isn’t singing along—the connection’s been cut. The narrator and the object of their affection go through rights and wrongs, highs and lows culminating in a feeling of resolution and closure. As in any failed relationship, you just hope the other person feels better once the spite is gone,” explains Timo Willsey, programmer/vocalist.
