The Four chambers in the song are the four chambers of the heart. It’s about how we sometimes fight the feelings we feel in order to protect ourselves because we don’t want to seem weak or vulnerable.

My music style can be quite eclectic. It’s mainly pop but it has elements of R&B and I also feel very drawn to dark sad songs.
