"Manic Pixie Dream Boy" by Ray Laurél

Written in 2021 during a time of introspection, the group shares: "In our minds that year was a year where we had a lot of questions. Like, what is freedom, what should one fight for, how should one fight for something, how do we move forward as a society and also, how do we judge our past behaviour? We believe questions are the biggest inspirator."
