Ishan and I finished “Gut Feeling” and the interlude “Spiral” during the first week of the quarantine for COVID19. It was created true to its name-- it took me about fifteen minutes to write. I had been making decisions based on my instinct lately, and I wanted to illustrate the momentary freedom that comes from acting on your gut feeling. After months of turmoil and feeling out of touch with myself, I wanted to get my hands on the wheel again. It felt good to trust myself.
“Gut Feeling” came quickly to me as well -- it happened during the early days of quarantine. Juletta and I were visiting my parents at the time, and while we were recording in my childhood bedroom we made this impromptu dance party.
