“I started playing ‘white noise’ every time we bumped into a piano on tour earlier this year. I wanted to dive even deeper into the vulnerability and emotion in this song, and the piano was the perfect instrument to convey those feelings,” shared flor’s Zach Grace. “When we dove into ‘unsaid’, I wanted to be transported back to high school when we were just cluelessly writing songs in McKinley’s garage. We limited ourselves to just the instruments we had on hand to capture the joy and excitement of new found creativity and exploration.”
