The duo's long awaited debut album was released last Friday and they took to their Facebook page to share the stories behind the songs and one was the deeply personal inspiration for Paris.
They reveal, "Paris was written in Stockholm (although we had just visited Paris days before) late one night after a show. It started with the lyrics, 'we were staying and Paris' and unfolded from there. The lyrics may seem vague at first, but their inspiration comes from a real place. Drew had a friend from the East coast who had been struggling with a drug addiction for the past few years.
"He was a childhood friend and their families were close, so his parents kept him informed on how he was doing. He and Drew would keep in touch on Facebook chat but would never speak about what he was going through, but meanwhile Drew knew of all the craziness that surrounded his friend's life.
"We used Paris as a metaphor to convey that he felt like he was in a place where everything was fine, while being acutely aware of other people's concern for him. Paris always being this romantic idealized place, the song is about escaping your reality, a reality often void of excitement and in your mind being somewhere else with someone else."

According to the band "<3" " is "An inner dialogue. It is a conversation happening between two different parts of the self, the anxious, afraid and troubled part, and the part that needs to live life to the fullest and feel free, without anxiety, fear or baggage."
The lyrics are "similar to how someone would write to an ex- or present partner because, aren't we our closest partner? We need to love ourselves to enjoy life, and we need to embrace all parts of the self and not dwell on the past." Watch the videohere.

They had this to say about the track, "Cicada Arcade" speaks to the culture of social media we live in today. A lot of people talking and making noise, but not listening or paying attention to the world around them.
"It's a very me-first frame of mind, with everyone believing that their ideas and opinions are more important than everyone else's. Our animator, Ali [Manesh] at 3E Visuals took that idea further with his visual interpretation of our lyrics. -
Ali added, 3E Visuals it's about wanting to get away from the constant noise and distractions that everyone is making in order to create and project their own false realities. And none of the false realities that are being thrown out there are original or unique, but are just based on recycled thoughts and beliefs that are being fed to them. Then the main character goes through a thought process that eventually ends up with him recognizing that he's not any different and his own existence and reality is based on those very same noises an distractions. But as he's coming to this realization, it's too late as he's actually fully immersed and drowning in the waste from his own false reality." Watch the videohere.
The message of "Someday" is to remind us that love is ever-present. We can find it in everything, and we can also create it in the smallest most unassuming moments of our lives. All we can do is keep being kind, and keep being the best version of ourselves that we can be. Here is the story of writing "Someday."
Sometimes when I'm working on a song, a new song idea sneaks in and sets me on a whole new course. I sat down to work on an up-tempo groove that I had been struggling to complete. I slowed down the pace to re-work chords, and next thing I knew, I had the intro riff of "Someday." I walked to the kitchen the following evening and I sang out "Someday love is gonna find us." It was spur of the moment lyric and thank goodness I was recording it. I still go back and listen to that moment. It was a time of loss and heart break me for me. This lyric summed up what I was feeling, but it also gave me a whole lot of hope. It told me that sometimes it's best to let love, life and relationships out of our control and have faith that the right thing will come.
My goal was to make the song about a universal love, not just a romantic type. Even though the song had romantic leanings at first, I liked the idea that love exists in all moments of life and we just have to shift our perspective to see it in our own lives. We find it by creating, adding to the world, pursuing our passions and purpose. We share it with each other through laughter smiles and sympathy. That idea brought on lines like "holding hands on a bridge" and "playing ball in the rain." I must have written 20 verses of "someday love is gonna find us, _____ fill in the blank…" I narrowed the song down to my favorite lyrics that I felt covered the song the best. And that's the version of "Someday" you hear today.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen and watch for yourselfright here!
