"She said 'what you want to be?' I said 'Alive'"

This is my favorite song on the Ep.

Side touches on art vs day job, art vs relationship, tells stories, explains himself without apology, and even almost sings a little bit, right?

If you know me, you know I can go on endlessly about day jobs draining one's soul. Especially after a few beers. Haha. So I definitely relate to Side's words on this.

Marco Hill has been playing guitar with Dumhi pretty steady for the last year or so. I think his additions, along with MicheleQJ's subtle vocal touches really give the 2 bar loop some life.

This has been one of our favorite songs to do live this summer too.

Marco kills this live.

This is my favorite song on the Ep.
