“At the heart of our artistic journey lies the constant pursuit of versatility. Our constant desire to push the boundaries, not only for ourselves but also for those who support us, is deeply embedded in our approach. When we decided to tackle Billie Eilish’s “You Should See Me in a Crown,” we knew we were walking in the shadows of a really dark song. Billy’s unique vocal delivery presented a challenge we couldn’t replicate, which inspired us to embrace the darkness and create our own version. As a result, this version became our most intense song ever released. Collaborating with our good friend and labelmate Jody Black was an absolute pleasure, and her contributions enriched the entire experience, making it a moment of collaborative togetherness we’ll always cherish. -Veer Sangh
