Guitarist Malady Jane comments:

“Outside of heavy music and harder genres of electronic music, we all share a love of various styles of pop music. Last year we experimented with writing a PC Music-style pop song, ‘High On Data’, and the positive reception to that made us eager to try that approach again and see if we could integrate it with our usual ‘cybergrind’ sound. The frenetic energy and shifts in pacing help to convey the wide range of emotions that one experiences after a difficult breakup.”

On the collaboration with diana starshine, Malady adds:

“Collaborations have been an important part of this project since our very first record, and we had been eager to feature someone from the wider pop/electronica sphere for some time. Working with diana starshine seemed like an obvious choice – she’s an admirer of the more pop-leaning production we’ve done and Hayley and I are big fans of her work. Projects like Digifae and solo tracks like ‘cantbreathe’ have the same exciting, genre-pushing feel that early PC Music did, and I feel this track is a worthy addition to that canon.”
