This demo was recorded over a period of roughly four months - always working around the never-ending rotation of college classes. Some songs are rather spartan, like Broken with the bare vocals and the subdued piano. Others are far more elaborate, like Jade with the intricate string arrangements that rise at the end. The style of recording varied quite a bit as well, ranging from songs done in virtually one take (Sick Embrace) to songs that took months to finally complete.
The songs were all written at different points over the course of five years, but there is one common thread that connects them all: frustration. This demo is for sleepless nights and lifeless days, for bitter words and broken ideals. It's for the knot in your chest that never seems to come untied. But when you strip all that away, this demo is for you. Just you.
