“Emergency Use Only” is about communication breakdowns – it is about being aware when someone is projecting their experience or story onto you. It’s also about how we move through difficult conversations, and most importantly how we recover. The pandemic forced me to deepen my relationships with friends and family. Often when we go deeper with the ones we love it can stir up conflict, but if we allow it, conflict can be a difficult path forward to understanding each other in a more intimate way. My intention was to create a warm vintage sound with a Beatles inspired melodic walk down and hints of Nick Drake. I wanted it to feel like the listener was getting an auditory hug. — Abby Posner
