In Their Words: “What we love about certain songwriters is their ability to say a lot, without an excess of wording. Writers like Fats Domino, Johnny Cash, and Hank Williams could convey a feeling or mood without having to say much at all. ‘S.O.S.’ was Brooks’ attempt at writing a ‘pop’ song using that same method. Brooks wrote this song about me, actually, which makes it sort of personal and extra sad from my perspective. But It’s about moving on from someone who you thought loved you as much as you loved them. The layered harmonies at the end are intense. I think we have 10 different vocal tracks going on there.” — Rachel Brooke
