Title track ‘i think i wanna text u’ is a reflective and tender response to missing someone. Navigating matters of the heart with his masterful songwriting and assured vocals, vaultboy explained further: I was alone in my room one night and missing this girl I don’t really talk to anymore. I wanted to text her, but instead of actually doing it, I put the feeling into this song. I think most of us, if not all, have someone who we miss and would love to reach out to (whether it’s a good idea or not). I hope that those people can relate to this song, and feel a little bit less alone.
Channeling life’s ups and downs into his music, vaultboy has quickly grown a reputation for making music that resonates with the masses. The second new track on the EP ‘feel anything’ touches on the feelings of life on hold, something the majority of the world got a taste of thanks to the pandemic. Digging deeper, vaultboy shares: The pandemic has kept a lot of us at home, but one thing I realized during quarantine: I felt the same type of cabin fever you get from staying inside for too long, but for being stuck in your hometown. I think a lot of people who’ve lived in one place for a long time have a tendency to feel trapped, and that’s where this song comes from. The feeling of desperation and dissatisfaction with the life you have, and wanting to feel more, bigger, and deeper!
