Ilithios captures a moment ahead, when we’ll all gather outside and see each other after being apart for so long. Surely, people will have changed, but they’ll still be some version of those we knew before. The weight of the unattended and constant grief that we’ve all carried through the rolling catastrophe is hard to characterize, but the song creates an illusion of hopefulness via the music, while the words contrast that hope with some doubt.
Along with this single are three remixes from artists associated with Ilithios, Stereoactive Media, and Totally Real Records — old man of the woods, Slalomville, and theJLM
