Jess Nolan - Sweet Like A Peach
About Sweet Like A Peach, Jess Nolan writes "I finished writing “Sweet Like A Peach” on the day we tracked it. It was a seedling of a song that sprouted a couple weeks before we went into the studio, and when I strummed it on guitar for the band, they all agreed we should record it. I was chewing on this idea of attraction as a drug. When we connect with someone quickly, it can feel euphoric - we also run the risk of leaving the present and building up a story about who the person is based on assumptions. At its core, this song is a compassionate look at the self-indulgence of falling for a stranger. Joni Mitchell once said in an interview, “What happens when you date is you run all your best moves and tell all your best stories — and in a way, that routine is a method for falling in love with yourself over and over.” The goal was to make the track feel sonically warm and textured like a big hug. I hope that listeners can extend a moment of self-love to themselves while indulging!"
