Regarding the track Gray said, “we wrote this song in London during our last writing trip before the pandemic. The song is about losing yourself in someone, even though there might be consequences. Sometimes it seems like when you're falling in love, the only thing that matters is the moment.” Curtis adds, “this song is about holding on to the person you love and allowing the rest of the world to become secondary. It is about taking the wheel and letting go of all the fears that try to barricade us from what is most important in life. To trust that when we allow love to guide us, everything around you will work itself out in the end.”
Teaming up with Lentra was a natural fit for the duo. Lentra shares, “I'm super excited about the release of ‘Car’. To me, it's a song about just wanting to get away from it all, and it was an easy thing to write about. the driving bassline and heartfelt lyrics drew me in and I had to jump on it.”
