“Thought I’d give you a spooky lil song for Halloween! I wrote it about a real fear I have of being taken in the night by someone outside my room…I’ve been loving a bunch of Arabic music lately, and in the studio when we were working on “Monsta” I suggested we find a line which follows a similar double harmonic scale—which you don’t usually hear in western music! I love the way that part has come out in the song.” – BENEE
