In Dec 2021 we flew to Austin to record a track with The Song Confessional who gave us a hotel and a selection of stories from people who came to confess their sins, desires, confusions and much much more. We picked a confession and made it into a song over the course of 3 days. The entire track ended up being recorded from our hotel room after we had to cancel our studio time and live performance because of a Covid exposure. Ted had a mysterious fever but somehow managed to write lyrics and a melody in a day and then passed it to me (Adam) to flush out the instrumentals and production. It was a blurry ride fueled by constant room service and random scooter rides in the middle of the night. We called it ‘Trippy Luv’ because the story we based it on is a real fear and loathing style bender following a couple who knows how to have a good time and doesn’t mind sharing their fun or their love.


I’ve been moving how I want
And way too lit to function
While we’re at the function
We met in the Summer House
Feeling pretty out there
Is anybody out there?

Taking another shot
Just enough to feel a lot
I try tasting on lunar rocks
Don't look down or you might get caught
Inside the wave
I’ve got to twist the knife
Just enough to save my life
Now we’re standing in the restaurant
Like anybody out there

This piston is pumping
My ripple reflection
And this hotel is jello
The echo of my ego

Getting lost inside the walls
And shaky in the transport
I think I need an escort

We go to find our room
Melting into the groove
This time the lights seem to guide us through
I know just what I want to do
And the stars above
Seem closer now
We all can’t help
But move in circles
You make it alright
It’s trippy luv
