Ouellet experienced a sudden and unexplained speech loss – causing him to refrain from speaking in near-isolation for months. What started with a thought-to-be-near-finished record, turned into many insomnia-driven nights and a lyrical blueprint resembling a Brooklyn detective’s office. During this time, both Richardson and Enders experienced sudden and dramatic losses of immediate family members, further provoking them to re-asses the previous material. After a period to re-surface, Ouellet began to court the other members in reconstructing, what had originally been, a set of coming-of-age stories into something entirely different. The result, which found much more desperation and black humour in the content, explores the darker corners of suburbia, infatuation, and forbidden love - delivered through a provocative wine-soaked rally cry. The band describes this, in contrast with their own late night fluorescent backdrop, as music for “the 2am comedown”.
