Part 2 of the Futuristically Botanical Blog Series highlights the flagship track of our album. “Trip the Light” has been the anchor of our live sets for three years. It’s up-beat, simple, and catchy.

Our process of writing the song was not deliberate. It was a dance that started with a slight shrug and a sway of the hip. With no intention of writing anything specific or exact, we continued to dance adding move after move until we felt something. Then we continued to add complexities to the routine until it was all too much. From that point we extracted, out of the chaos, what was to become:
