They find inspiration from acts like King Krule, High Club, and Mk.Gee. “That sort of slacker jazz chordy stuff really inspires me to make the dumb songs I make,” Miller says.

Miller says, about “walk through the snow”: “The song was written about someone I was dating at the time, you know how songs are, and i just wanted to talk about some of the real sorta grounded things you do for folk you’re into, sometimes the kinda things that are a little bit of a pain, like walking through the snow for a long time.”
