Lead single ‘Alapathy’ is the first taste of a newly upbeat and urgent streak to Fenne's songwriting. Its insistent percussion mimics the anxious racing thoughts that Fenne deals with as an overthinker and chronicles how she “started smoking weed to switch off [her] brain.” The title is a made-up word that merges ‘apathy’ and ‘allopathic’ (as in Westernized medicine). "Western medicine generally treats the symptoms of an illness rather than the cause," explains Fenne. For Fenne, taking medication to improve her mental health didn’t solve her problems because she felt like she was only treating the effects of her discomfort, not the reason for it.
