Minimalism and instinct, structure/freedom and meticulous timing form the cornerstones of their precise, rhythmical sound.

Lyrically, the album explores the weight of race and gender, endurance and navigating other people's behaviours, observation and protest.

The band further comment "this album involves what it means navigating the outside world in a racialized body and what it does to the psyche as a whole while finding individual worth within this reality." This time featuring the core trio Robin Wattie, Mathieu Ball and Tasy Hudson, for their most collaborative record they've made so far.

The band elaborate "having cut our teeth in very different musical backgrounds respectively, our intuitions vary, which has an interesting effect on our individual approaches and ears." For this record, BIG | BRAVE once again made the trek down to Rhode Island to record with Seth Manchester at Machines with Magnets.

They remark "we fully trust his instinct as an engineer and his creative output, getting to experiment with textures, concepts, layers, and with pretty much every single recorded sound, the process of making records with Seth is an absolute journey and pleasure."
