"'be kind' Musically speaking, it's heavily inspired by 90s rock and contemporary music that pulls from that era (Alvvays, George Clanton, etc). As far as theme goes, it's our farewell to the people we never got a chance to get closure with. "be kind" is our first track to come out since we dropped our EP Garden in June, and it serves as a bridge into our next musical chapter. We went back to our DIY roots for this one and did everything (recording, producing, mixing, etc) on our own. Hope you enjoy, and if you do, we'd love to work together". -Wotts

third single on her musical career. This track is, in many ways, the most raw and revealing of the 5-songs on Green’s upcoming debut EP, ‘Outrunning The Animal,’ both musically and in terms of letting listeners feel her ache. “Thief” is an Americana ballad that calls on elements of Jazz, Folk, and Pop, resulting in a track that feels timeless and emotionally stirring.
"Thief" is for anyone who has ever been abandoned. It's about the experience of being betrayed or rejected by the person you love the most, but it's also about the realization that two things can be true. I think this is realization many of us don't come to until later in life". - Emily Nicole Green.

I always strive for honesty in my writing, but this has the kind of honesty that I think I had never dared to have with myself.” -Chloé Sauterreau
