Indeed, it’s the category of music that relaxes the body form all kind of tensions. Also, the most interesting thing about the composition is the inclusion of different sounds variation, and the fluid blend of Mark’s husky vocals.
On the song Mark shared:
“‘Road’ was one that just needed to come out. The day before it was written, we decided to call it an early night at the studio and left 11pm. I tried to go meet up with friends but was having a hard time switching back to “reality” after spending so much time in the studio. I went into the studio the next day slightly on edge, so I laid on the ground behind the board and wrote this song. Immediately I felt better — like I had just explained to myself that this is my life now. I needed to realize that it was my choice, and it’s absolutely beautiful to live this way. Hope is important to me these days. I think the world could always use more of it.”
