”The same love can take many shapes over time. The verses are quiet and near-acoustic (only voice and guitar), for when the feeling was internalised. Losing myself in her expert critiques of various teas, or in the way she’d geek out about science. The choruses (with their higher vocals, drum grooves and vox-samples) reminds me of times when that feeling was expressed and celebrated.” ~ Shaan Kambli

“I wanted the lead vocal to switch rapidly between legato and staccato phrasing. For the staccato sections, I chose lyrics which emphasise consonance, allowing the phrasing to break more sharply (i.e. too good to be true – the staccato section, as compared to sixteen, our love seemed – the legato section).” ~ Shaan Kambli
