“This song is about one of the most intense feelings I’ve ever had for another person and everything that became of it, written as a ballad within a confession within a dream within a ballad. An ode to R&B from the 80s, 90s, 00s, and 10s, All The Sweet Tattooed Girls… is a foliar, synthy, vapor-infused crossroads of the sensuality, smoothness, and romance of these eras, bathed in moonlight and a eucalypts aroma, drawn out to an explosive, euphoric conclusion.” — Venator

“I Don’t Want To Go Home” by Loud Forest
“Entitled “I Don’t Want To Go Home”, the track is an anthem for those of us who didn’t always feel like we belonged. The song is a confrontation of two emotions; one can be heard in the verses – it’s anger, anger for feeling trapped, controlled, and hurt. The other emotion is a sparkling exuberance that can be heard in the choruses. There is a release and excitement that comes in finding your youthful identity with friends and freedom.” — Loud Forest
