Hey Our Basement,

When things end, my tendency is to zero in on regret and the things that I feel I’ve missed out on. I wanted “Sainte Something” to focus instead on the hope and possibility that can come from endings. This is a song about looking beyond endings and appreciating the time that comes before them. It’s about enjoying the ride rather than worrying about what needs doing before you’re even done.

At the time that I wrote “Sainte Something,” I was fresh out of a relationship and just a few months away from finishing school and leaving Montreal, my home for the previous four years. I was thinking a lot about endings – how we cope with them, what they look like in retrospect, and whether they really measure up to the importance that I so often ascribe to them.

Thank you so much for listening! Our forthcoming self-titled EP is out on July 13th.
