(Ethan) Our approach to songwriting basically is start with something. Anything. A riff, a good line, a title, whatever we have in the moment. We start working around that until we come up with a melody. We play with that until we get an absolute skeleton of a song, and then we shift into poetry mode and write the finalized lyrics. Sometimes we rework the format of the song, switch around verse order stuff like that, but that’s the gist of it. As for themes, we like to write about what’s on our mind. What we’re thinking about at any given moment. Be it political, personal, or just an attempt to tell a story. Writing about how you feel gives the music a more genuine and personal feel, so we try to write what we think.
