Genre-bender HU$H just released a brand new single and video called "Overstay," and to celebrate we asked him to tell us about the track. Here is the story:

This was right as the pandemic hit in late 2019 to early 2020, so things were getting tense and I was isolating and just watching the news for updates and working on music as 2020 creeped in.
