Influenced by her move to Olympia from Nebraska, the soothing production comes to life with a full, orchestral feel that swells with pride and passion that Magnuson feels for her music. A song which “encapsulates a lot of the vibe for the whole album,” the track strikes a balance between vibrance and tranquillity.
The track is accompanied by a music video which admires the beauty of Kelsey’s new home, celebrating the electrifying connection she feels to her surroundings, as poetic lyrics like “I just want a day off/ And I just want a clear sky,” paint a picture of seeking freedom after taking too much on.
