“When we all met for the first time, our energy just clicked– and that synergy manifested itself into this record.”
Tablo of EPIK HIGH adds, “Feelin’ blessed to be a part of this beautiful song. With my verse, I wanted to talk about the inherent double-bladed nature of love. As the title of the song implies, love is often simultaneously gentle and violent. Hope it hits close to home for ya.”
