"Want More" is the culmination of frustration about life, the overwhelming feeling of Wanting More from life but struggling to see the way up and out of the situation you're in. Written from a very dark place with an upbeat RnB'esque vibe "Want More" combines the singers lack of emotion with the sweeping instrumentals of the band to create a sonic juxtaposition for the ears. "Want More" was Recorded at RYP Recordings in 2018.
