instead of an end-of-the-year single this year, i chose 10 sketches + b-sides and compiled them into a collection. the track order has everything to do with feeling and nothing to do with when i wrote them. two of these songs even pre-date any marine eyes releases.

written between 2020-2023, these songs never found a home until now. i would re-open the sessions from time to time, being brought back to where i was when i sat down to write— variations in processing my days, experimenting in my bedroom studio + diving deeper into production.

i appreciate all your support this year, and for helping guide me to keep sharing my music. i believe deeply that music is therapy and hope these songs in their raw forms remind you to feel what you need to feel, and always lean into love a little more.

ps. the official marine eyes #3 is coming next year to past inside the present! i’ll start sharing more on that within the first few months of the year.
