"What could it mean to really slow down the mind? Or life? And to actually value the space that occurs when you do? To take a pause, take a nap, take a bath? Could it mean some break? Some moment of peace? Some moment of something.... I don't know. That's the question that the song asks, in the end. That's the question that comes to me when I listen to the song and when I wrote the song and when I think about it now." - INCONNIA

"It talks about slowing down. Reminding yourself, and myself... of the world around us. And that the world has so much to offer beyond what we am afraid of and what our fears are... The world doesn't have to just be about fear and anxiety, and stress, and difficult experiences... It can also be about joy and love and laughter, and I don't think I'd really realised that... I kind of had, but I that I also really kind of hadn't." - INCONNIA

 ETHOS: "My music highlights mental health, in particular raising awareness about OCD and relationship PTSD. I feel it is imperative to bring support and understanding to (including myself) those who have been through are currently living with these conditions as they can be incredibly lonely and misunderstood, as well as to raise general awareness amongst those who don't to help reduce stigma.<3"

my audience do not need to feel helpless or alone <3 

[mental health is really important <3]

Information about relationship abuse:

[strong mental health/

mindfulness focus]

*hey-ey-eey*

"Slow Down is about the space between your thoughts. Allowing that space to exist and understanding the begininngs of how to slow down the racing mind. It is about finding any sense of freedom in the darkest moments. By kneeling down, by breathing, by touching down. By just allowing the time and place to exist"  - INCONNIA
