Geryon

 [ARTIST STATEMENT]I wanted to create something that sounded like I felt reading the poem for the first time, but I also wanted to let the track be what it needed to be in its own right. I felt really drawn to this idea of intersecting vulnerability and strength, and focused heavily on vocal manipulation and transformation to create an almost self protective energy between me and everyone else. The track felt really fragile to me at the start, which didn't feel totally accurate, so anyway, somehow it kind of turned into a moody dance track.
