The Vastness is a concerted effort to listen inwardly and write what emerged over the course of three weeks this June. Each track features relatively sparse instrumentation that grows more dense with dynamic emotional swells. While writing city curfews were enforced, violence and destruction sparked, peaceful protests formed, and my mother received life-saving emergency surgery. This EP juxtaposes heaviness with resolute hope because that is what I have felt and what I feel now.
