In Their Words: “This is the first song I wrote after I learned I was going to be a mother. I was in the middle of the blurry dream world that comes along with that and also making major life decisions about where our family was going to live, how we wanted our futures to look. Fast-forward two years, and my friend and director, Tim Gehling, came to visit our new home in Los Angeles. He and my husband, Mikael Kennedy, shot a bunch of super8 film around California. We wanted it to feel non-linear and dream-like, so we found some old animation and vintage material that Tim wove that into his original footage. The grainy, overlapping images really echo this luminous haze I was in when I wrote the song.” — Melaena Cadiz
