Candy has a propensity for literate lyrics, and an aptitude for catchy, dense songwriting.
“‘Clean’ stems from my scared and defeatist mindset,” Candy explains. ”My mother texted me awhile back saying she was packed and ready to go if the fires found their way to her farm. I’ve never really known of collective anxiety and found myself, along with many others I know, really overwhelmed with the whole situation"
