I wrote this song after a long bike ride. I had outlined a snazzy piano riff earlier that day and believed it could sustain an entire song. So I poured myself a glass of wine, snuggled down into the piano bench, and developed what eventually evolved into “Platform.”
I needed to write this to let go of the last few flecks of heartbreak. I needed to write it to avenge my own personal injustices of love maintained; to plant some glimmer in the rubble left behind. As the title suggests “Platform” is about raising someone up. Lifting them and supporting them while they walk all over you. Metaphors.
