Hyperreality is a collection of songs i worked on for five years, through loss, through deepest depression, through escape, through return. up until recently, there was a full album surrounding these songs. i'm not the same person i was when i started writing these - i realized that in order to close the book on that part of my life i needed to move on and get my babies out there in the world. i can't say that i'm not terrified to put these out, but i feel these are the four songs that can best explain where i've been for so long.
i really hope you enjoy these. i'll see you soon.
