My new single, “End of the Night,” was inspired by many long nights out in the Toronto music scene, having fun at shows and forgetting about whatever happened that week. I’ve got social anxiety – so I’ve always been a bit averse about going to parties, but finding the music community provided me with a bedrock of cool people that I had a lot in common with and was excited to see all the time.
Shows became a place where I took the pressure off myself to always say the right thing because the music was so loud (ha). I could fully immerse myself in the moment, the art, the people, and not overthink anything – a lovely privilege.
On this song, I aimed to evoke the brimming energy that live music makes me feel through an upbeat melody and fuzzy, near triumphant guitar lines.
Party of One, my new EP which “End of the Night” features on, is about the human need for community. People, including myself at times, falsely think it’s cooler to be stoic, completely independent, and removed from feeling anything real. I believe it’s far braver to ask for help when you need it, lean on your friends, and try to forge meaningful connections.
Thank you for spending time with this track! I am excited to share Party of One with you in full.
