Miguel Plante on “nrvs again:”
“I wrote the chorus for this song 2018, before dad sports was even a thing. I had just met Keith, Alex had just picked up the bass, and I was just beginning to write music. I was still finding myself as an artist and was pretty (nrvs) about what others would think of my songs. These insecurities are what shaped the lyrics. For the next few years, we re-wrote the song over and over and over until we were finally happy with it. To us, the lyrics and the long songwriting process represent the time we spent learning how to do the whole music thing together. I realized that you’re always gonna be insecure in some way about your art, but that’s just part of the process of improving 🙂 🙂 Also I have Alex and Keith to tell me if my lyrics are shit now LOL.”
