What did the band say?
From the members of the band there have been two crucial opinions about the process of the album and what they wanted to leave embodied in it. These are Ashton Irwing and Luke Hemmings.
Ashton Irwin a Wonderland Magazine: “It’s absolutely diverse in every way, and the band has been on its way to building a rock and pop identity. We have made progress on both lanes. We’ve worked on pop writing and love to melodically write unique choruses and concepts. On the other hand, the rock side of the band has improved in terms of recording.”
luke hemmings a Apple Music: “The album is definitely very introspective. Lyrically, looking at everything that has happened to us, it has been a great theme. For me, the whole album is the most introspective and the most lyrically beautiful we’ve ever done. There’s a lot of heart in it.”
