Hear Me Out is about being in a relationship, wanting to spend an eternity with someone yet sometimes you need to spend time apart to heal and reflect, so you don’t come back and start to shout.
"Hollow" is about the duality of human kind being half good and half bad. Can’t judge a book by its cover with out knowing the story within. Sometimes people have to recognize why and when we are being hollow, empty with no heart
inside. Think outside of yourself and put yourself in someone else's shoes.
Shady Beach is about getting really high, going out and being kind to people in a pay-it-forward short story style because “nobody likes a shady beach.” Our world in divided, let's start being good to one another. The energy you put into the universe could come back to you times three.
Why lie? For selfish reasons or insecurity? These people don’t know they are hurting themselves and it's about why we should learn to forgive these people. As Abraham Lincoln says “No one has a good enough memory to be a successful liar.”

“The tandem's live performances are a joy to behold. Sanchez's beats build and build on the dance floor like any good house music set, then Zimmerman joins the production, adding layers of intricate drum rhythms that both complement and contrast with the synths. The result is all of the vivacity of a live concert, with the simple euphoria of a dance floor.”
