The album is mainly a selection of songs [we] had in various stages of the demo, including a couple that were planned for use with The Main Grains, one was a live staple of our show, and a few new tracks. It seemed like a great idea to get them recorded and things grew from there. Lyrically, it’s mainly a commentary on things we see in the world, feelings and, self-reflection, but hopefully, it translates in a way that can speak to different people in different ways.”The City Kids
