“In early 2018, I saw the documentary that started my journey to write this record. It’s an HBO doc called “heroine: cape god”. Though I’ve never done junk and don’t plan on trying it, in an abstract way I found myself relating to the film’s young interviewee’s. I’ve never spoken much publicly about this, but during high school, I was in and out of the hospital with physical illness. Often debilitatingly sick. To say it shaped my adolescence is an understatement. In multiple ways I related to the characters I saw in the documentary.Going into these feelings I had as a teenager was the perspective I chose to write this album from. It happened very naturally and without much thought – it became “Cape God”. I would say Cape God is a liminal space I created to explore my repressed feelings and perhaps create a different outcome. While in cape god, you are in limbo. you stay there until you die or come to life and while you are there you are somewhere in between…..”
