No longer just blue but delving to new depths in a cathartic luster of midnight, Warren Wolfe emerges as our next obsession with his newest track.

Warren Wolfe is undaunted to speak about this sense of hollowness invoked by the snowballing of synthetic self-projections, alluding to insecurities in the realm of social media.
