On its latest split, Amber stated the following: “The new material has gone into a much darker and heavier direction than the past two releases. Although this was not intended when we wrote it, it turned out to fit perfectly to Julian’s voice. The track on this 7” is a good example of this newfound heaviness. Both the music and the lyrics sound like someone ripped out the happy, melodic parts and replaced it with something dark and evil.” Amber’s side of the split was recorded and mixed by Lukas Wiesemüller at Raum 7 Studio and mastered by Role at Die Tonmeisterei.
On its contribution, Locktender explained the meaning behind the track: ” ‘The Piazza’ weaves themes from the Herman Melville short story of the same name with personal thoughts of wanderlust and homesickness experienced when entering enticing, yet foreign, lands. The concept of “home” always seems to be rooted in one physical stationary point; ‘The Piazza’ implies that the journey to find one’s self, and the people met therein, are equally important”
