Songfacts®:

  • This song was recorded by Sam Duckworth (aka Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly) with jungle/drum'n'bass producer Shy FX. The pair wrote the tune at the start of 2017 as part of a series of sessions for Shy FX's album. Duckworth recalled: "It was a magical session, with a revolving door policy. It was very creative and all artists had room to bring their unique styles to a common environment."

    He added: "The song is about the increasing isolation and anxiety felt when a significant moment in your life changes your whole perspective. Be it in childhood or adulthood, we have all had sea change moments where things don't look or feel the same. This manifests in all of us differently, but sometimes the spiral of neglect is difficult to break. It's a song in solidarity with those who have had their world shaken by negative incidents that will forever be used as psychological barometers for instinctual feelings."
