Castlebeat: East Coast
“The song is about spending the past 2 years living in NYC being away from home, it's unique because it's the first Castlebeat song that doesn't rely heavily on guitar. The past year I've gone through a sort of writer's block & have been trying to come up with different sounds. I hope to eventually put together an album that melds my old sound with something fresh. This is my attempt at a more synth-based sound.” - Josh Hwang (CASTLEBEAT)
