“Elder Brycen was a fan of my latest release and we ended up connecting on Instagram, and of course after hearing his music I was hooked as well. We talked about collaborating for a while and after tracking ideas and files back and forth, we found the perfect track and we are now excited to share this single with you. We really worked on finding the balance between some of my bright and strummy ideas vs many of his dark and driving tracks, and this was the perfect fit for both of us.” – Izzy The Gent
“It’s a story about the time you meet someone, and they’re incredible, and they really seem to like you too… so you go and sabotage everything before they get the opportunity to break your already maimed heart into tiny little pieces.” – Golden Plates (Elder Brycen)
