In their own words Harve explained,
" I'm taking more of a behind the scenes role, self-producing the entire project and inviting friends to collaborate. The production heavily features my signature sampling style - using old demos and voice notes to create something new and original. I feel like my DIY approach echos how many trans + non-binary producers and artists work; without much representation, we carve out our own unique methods of making music and existing within the scene. This release will be a celebration of so many things; collaboration, queer excellence, gender non-conformity, and uniqueness within music."
