“If I Knew I wrote about my relationship with time but written as if time is a person. I know I’m still young but as I go through life and things start changing around me, it becomes evident that some things happen for the last time and you often don’t realise that at the time, so it’s really about making the most of the time you have.” – Riley Pearce
“Unintentionally all of the songs on Eastbound ended up being about a series of different relationships I have in my life. Some with friends, some with my family, my partner, and the passing of my youth. I recorded the EP with Hayden Calnin & Andy Lawson at Debaser Studios and there’s a noticeably and more definite focus to the production this time. That was a huge part of bringing Hayden on board, I wanted to really bring people into the songs and make them visualise, reflect and daydream about their own relationships and what they meant.” – Riley Pearce
