As the band was in the midst of finishing the album, Massey's parents got in a severe car accident forcing her to pause recording and return home to Madison, WI and take care of them. A week later, the pandemic hit. Massey was separated from the rest of her bandmates and unsure how the album could be finished. With Stoehr leading production duties, the band managed to continue recording in an isolated, post-COVID world. Thankfully most instrumentals were already written. As Massey's father Michael recovered from his injuries, the two worked on completing her vocal takes from his home studio, sending them to Stoehr for mixing.
The made-up word “moveys” is multi-faceted. It's an invitation to dance. It's a wink at the cross-country nature of the album’s writing process, while the bandmates were literally on the move touring, sheltering in place, and going through major life changes. But, mostly, it’s an inside joke. Listening to these dynamic and welcoming songs, it's easy to feel like you're a part of it too.
