Zach Zanardo discusses ‘Daytona Bleach’

Daytona Bleach was a whole new experience for me. The shift of production styles from old-school to using this thing called a ‘computer’ opened my eyes to a whole new way to create and a whole new palette. We’re no longer just a band in a room, but a whole universe of colour, sound, and expression. This mentality truly came about in ‘He Said/She Said (I Wait)’ – a song that had its beginnings years ago, but really came to life when we brought it to Ryan in the studio.

Sally Shaar discusses “He Said/She Said (I Wait)”

‘He Said/She Said (I Wait)’ is about delusionally interpreting and trying to accept what is going on around me while constantly immersed in a dissociative state. It seems like we are all running around on our hamster wheels at home. As we look around surrounded by fake news and sickness, I sit frozen, feeling catatonic in my body. I’m stunned by the explosion of exploitation I see around me. Yet, my mind can’t stop running. My thoughts race in perpetual anxiety as I wait for life to resume its course.
