  • Finch close their third album, Back to Oblivion, with this serene ballad. Vocalist Nate Barcalow told Artist Direct: "Originally, (guitarist) Alex Linares wrote the song, and it was a heavier full band song. Our producer Brian Virtue was into it, but he really wasn't into it the way it was. We decided to take a different approach, break it down to acoustic, and make it a lot more vibe-y. We saved it till the end, and we didn't really rehearse anything for it. We let it sit there, took a day in the studio, recorded it, and it came out the way it was."

    "I felt like it should've been a hidden track," Barcalow added. "In the digital era, those don't really exist. You just download things, and it's right there. It's a sleepy wind down piece. After the record's over, this comes on."
