For his third solo LP, Nicolay worked with producer oktopus,
of the innovative New Jersey industrial/hip-hop group dälek,
to move beyond the singer-songwriter soundworld to create a dark, explosive, and cinematic opus of personal and political anger, and about balancing the impulse to run away from trouble and the reality that it is the terrible things that happen to us that shape our personalities.
