  • At over seven minutes, this is the longest song on Here and Nowhere Else. Singer-guitarist Dylan Baldi explained to "I wanted to make it a response to the long song on the last record, 'Wasted Days' and I wanted it to kind of start off angry, angsty or whatever word people want to use. But then I wanted it to sort of morph into something prettier, you know? That sort of noisy breakdown that happens and I wanted to do that because at the end of 'Wasted Days,' I say, 'I want to be more than this' over and over and over. And at the end of 'Pattern Walks' I wanted to say 'I thought,' a bunch of times, but over this prettier background. Just because it kind of is a better representation of where I am now compared to where I was then."

    "With Attack On Memory, I was pretty depressed," Baldi added. "I wasn't really feeling good. But this one, I was generally in a better place and trying to just think more and understand more about everything, rather than, 'this sucks' all the time."
