In Their Words: “‘Sandpaper Hymn’ was written during a time of massive loss. At the time, it felt as if the universe was grinding away at me, taking little bits of material off of my heart and body with every stroke. But with every loss, I feel like I have a choice to stretch and grow, or otherwise allow bitterness to overshadow the narrative. If loss is a great ‘sanding,’ perhaps my edges can be made smooth, less jagged, less likely to snag people. I recorded the studio version during the early phases of the 2020 lockdown, giving the themes of loss and isolation a greater meaning during the recording process.” — Chris DuPont
