Describing the origins of the project, Baldi told Exclaim!, "I woke up one morning hungover in Paris, which is where I usually live, and I just had a text on my phone that was like, 'Yo, wanna make a record together?'

There's good news and the bad news. We've been quite quiet for a short while but not slacking. The last few months have been spent writing, recording, then rewriting and rerecording demos for a load of new songs. This brings us onto the good news.
