Some more 1-minute dumbpop songs.
A few of these songs I have been sitting on for a few years and some were made during the pandemic. They traverse thoughts, emotions, and difficulties I have experienced at numerous times in my life. I like to imagine releasing these songs out into the world may be a way to release myself from some of these personal afflictions – at least for a minute.
Please listen with headphones.
