“The record captured a moment in time that I will never feel again, I’d been living in LA for 6 months and was dealing with that tension of longing for home, but also loving where you are, and feeling that your heart was breaking from trying to be in two places at once. All these songs are about that tension. An ‘Ivory Town’ is the idea that you’re living in a place that is still a blank canvas, still coming into being, still a period of ambiguity and stasis.” It’s the tension of living between two states – of wanting one thing and yet wanting another that is in direct contrast to that. It’s the familiar kind of tension that exists when you move away from home, when you go through heartbreak, when you grow up. That’s what all three songs on the record are about, wanting to be where you are, but also longing for what you’ve left behind. I hope that every listen is special for you, because every second of creating this record was special for me."
