Get Out was inspired during a time I felt disconnected from the world and the people around me. The desire was to connect, and there was a longing to get out of the thoughts “in the head” patterns that often prevent that connection. Musically, I wanted to convey this sense of someone having an internal conversation with all the versions of themselves. The sonic landscape needed to be anthemic but quiet. Production-wise, I worked with a talented and dedicated producer to bring this vision to life, and played violin and keys myself. In terms of instrumentation, I wanted the drums and vocals to be the focal point, with swells created by violin and piano, similar to my other songs. It took us quite a while to find the right drum beat – in retrospect, I was looking for something that sounded like a heartbeat. Again, that sonic landscape of an internal dialogue, hearing one’s own voice in some sort of internal chamber. I hope for Get Out to make people feel closer to themselves.
