Speaking of the single, Felix Cartal tells us, “In ‘Mine’ each verse is about a different kind of love. In Verse 1 we have been sixteen and your childhood, Verse 2 a post-college adult and, The Bridge is a more mature adult looking back. We wanted it to be folk-ish in melody and in production to emphasize the focus on it being a narrative, really story-driven. Finally, the drop melody is Sophie singing a clean sweet melody and it being distorted kind of like what happens when one looks back on memories. We often remember them differently as time passes”
