In response to Segarra, ‘Pierced Arrows’ is “a heartbreak track, misplaced within the realm of reminiscence. Being caught previously, and discovering the quickly altering world uncanny and weird.

We wished ‘Pierced Arrows’ to have a gritty narrative really feel however that also indulged in a surrealist aesthetic. The track lends itself to a story climax. The primary time I heard it, I felt like I used to be in the midst of a brewing storm. I couldn’t escape the reference to Hurricane Ida, which hit Southern Louisiana onerous in late August. This blended effectively with themes from Alynda’s track which is essentially about operating from a previous that at all times catches as much as you. Therefore bodily operating in industrial landscapes. Metallic. Trainyards. Escapism. Chilly anxiousness. Being caught in a trauma loop.”
