Further Info on “Let You In” from the band:
“I never felt this way before but my dreams were so much more”…
“When we are young, love is a concept we don’t fully understand and is often driven by impulses, physical attraction, ego and other things that are not conducive to a lasting relationship. So as we get older and mature, we can grow apart from a person because the relationship you had with that person was not built on a secure foundation.”
“couldn’t tell a soul; what lies within, but somehow I can only let you in” refers to the fear of opening up to someone and never fully being able to let them truly know you but somehow still letting that person into your life and becoming a part of your story for such a significant amount of time.”
“so i walk this endless land, leave my footprints in the sand until I return again.”
“The endless land could be a metaphor for love and the uncertainty while you’re in it. But as I’m on my way out of that place, all I can do is leave a mark or change on that person whether it be good or bad, hence “leave my footprints” and you take with you whatever lessons you’ve learned from the experience, until the next time you return to that place, hopefully, wiser than you were before. I think the ambient and tranquil vibe of the music is an expression of the way I feel about letting go and moving on. Although it may be a bit sad, I’m not distressed, angry, or putting up a fight or longing for things to be what they were. There is a sense of acceptance as I move on. I am at peace with it.”

STARVEYA is a psychedelic, alternative rock band from the fringes of Los Angeles, California. https://www.starveyamusic.com. Originating around the turn of the millennium, their music can be described as a fusion between the classic studio recordings of the late 1960’s and that of the heavier grunge movement of the early 1990’s. The band exemplifies both of these elements in their 2013 EP ‘Stellar Womb,’ coming together to showcase its own fresh, modern sound. The band released “Moontide” on May 29, 2020, their first new single since 2018’s “Olde Crow.” STARVEYA’s full-length album ‘Abandon All Muses’ is slated for a 2021 release.
