As we began writing Memory Phase, we noticed the tracks started to capture all of these different moments, vibes, and emotions that we could easily relate back to our memories of summer. Even though the EP works linearly as the story of a summer day into a summer night, our idea was to have each track capture the emotion and space of a different summer moment. We wanted to transport the listener into all these different summer scenes that we've all experienced before.Floreana and London are the backdrop to a day on the beach in the hot sun, sipping piña coladas as dusk rolls in over the ocean. Losing You feels like a night drive down the West Side Highway with the windows down, the car encapsulated with hot summer air. Heat - Sink captures the contrast between being in the center of an insane party and stepping outside into the a cool summer night. Finally as night slowly turns to day, Vesper captures that sense of not caring where you are even if you're a little lost. We knew that sense of freedom and liberation that summer inherently possesses was really important for us to articulate.
That moment where Vesper’s distorted synth intro collapses into the painfully real and dry dialogue between rimshot and felt-piano is one of our favorite Memory Phase moments. It’s like being ripped from a lucid dream and awaking at the bottom of the Black Sea.
