In Their Words: “‘Shipwrecks was just fun [to write]. We had some melody ideas… We have this little phrasebook we sometimes use to get ideas, and we found these phrases that revolved around shipwrecks and realized that kind of lyric was just right. We’re all bothered, we’re all struggling, we’re all just a wreck trying to figure out how to get to shore safely. This song is about the empowering knowledge that our imperfections and mistakes make us who we are. Our flaws, turbulence, and strife are all things that help shape us into the people we are, the people we are becoming, and the people we want to ultimately be. We’re all messed up…but we’re all in it together, and there is something beautiful about that. The video was shot in Austin, Texas around late July 2021 in a storm. The idea was to illustrate that we are all ‘shipwrecks,’ and by the end of the video we make it out alive and ready for what’s ahead.” — The Sweeplings
