Beseeched by how life has revealed itself through the years of existence, it was apparent that it wasn’t going to be the easiest thing to tackle. A conceptual defiance, bubbled within and when that volcano of vibes expanded like rainbows over the mountains. The apparent direction of it all, seemed right.
Right for the justice to come. Right for all of the wants and desires, prayed in secret.
“The song is about my relationship with women, and how due to the huge amount of insecurity and low self-esteem I had growing up, I would constantly bounce around from one woman to another, either purposely ending it early or indirectly sabotaging it,” DS bandleader Matthew Hitchens says. “Looking back, I was completely unable to open up about my mental health issues to anyone due to the intense amount of shame I felt about it all, and so I would push people away whenever they would get close.”

Questions. Answers. Never.

This is another live acoustic cover, this time it’s “Missing” by Everything But The Girl. A while ago I noticed that the living room in my house has naturally great acoustics, so I decided to start recording some performances of just me singing live with my guitar. Recorded on iPhone.
