— We're speaking with you following the release of 'Yellow Blue Bus' and ahead of 'Lalai', two singles taken from your forthcoming album on Crosstown Rebels. We are very excited to hear the full project! But first, set for release on January 28th, what can you tell us about the second single, 'Laska', and what was the inspiration behind it?
— The song is sung by Iranian opera singer Ariana Vafadari and recorded in a 400 year old water well. Initially she wrote the lyrics for her son, for when she takes him to bed, but eventually we gave it a broader meaning. It became more of a 'goodbye' song, that represents the 'letting go' of a person or the 'letting go' of day into night.
