this track was originally half of a track titled "trapped in a shell."
it was one of the first tracks i wrote, shortly after i came to terms with dysphoria...
it's a live recording of me playing on a keyboard i had,
i believe i played this around 4am that night. wasn't supposed to be up.
years later i'm putting it here because i feel i finally realize what the context of this track should have been- originally coming after a meandering 6 minutes of keyboard strolling, this half of that previously depressing track represents to me now finding positivity in the darkest situations, holding on to light when under the dark blankets of hopelessness. i felt inconsolably sad when i played this, yet years later i feel so different about it.
i retitled it to "breaking free" as a statement that i found way from that shell, i feel a completely different relationship to my mind and body as it were- it's not a shell as i conceived it then. my body and my mind are a singular. the body is me. the mind is me. i have broken free from what felt a shell and into a fully realized self.
bangers. it's just pure, unadulterated, dreamy, breakbeat bangers. I'd die if got to see these played at a show. and the pairing is incredible; Ivy an amazing vocalist, Kate an amazing producer. somasis

When I listened to this for the first time a few days ago I thought it was terrible at first, but it quickly grew on me, becoming one of my favourite albums of all time. I like pony music in general, but I never expected it to be so groundbreaking. quantum_menace
