MYRA MONOKA x Seoul Station

With this song we wanted to tell people about the synergy of one’s inner conflicts and the
ways of resolving them. It’s important for us that people know that sometimes we also
struggle with our demons. Writing this song is our way of effectively dealing with these issues
and hopefully others can also relate this concept. To represent this idea in the music itself as
well, we decided to use only analog instruments and synthesizers and blend them together
seamlessly in order to display hese inner battles and their resolution.

Myra Monoka and Mongoose (Seoul Station) have been releasing music together for a
decade now. We are always more than excited to work together, because we know that at
the end of the day we are going to bring out the best from each other. Our journey began
years ago, but we feel like the end is nowhere near and there are way more songs to follow.

To follow the sonic concept of this duality, we wanted to make sure that it is represented
visually as well. The blurred contours of Myra on the artwork is in contrast with the sharp
moment that was captured with the help of a flashlight. The artwork is one picture that still
feels like two separate images.
