"I wrote this song when I was 16 after smoking my first cigarette and thinking it was going to be the start of my downward spiral. It's one the few that have survived this long and I'm so excited to finally be putting it out. In the production, Howard and I tried to find a sweet spot between the inherent country vibe of the song and my own indie rock sound."

Päter (Iran-born, Toronto-based Parmida Kakavand) pulls together a larger than life persona from scraps. After grabbing the attention of listeners internationally by sharing snippets of songwriting online, Päter’s debut single ‘Dam, Damn’ racked up over 2,000,000 streams on Spotify alone. Following on the heels of that success, Päter released two EPs, the self-produced 'SOLE' (2020) and 'WHEREFORE WEEP I THEN?' (2022), an EP on unrequited love. Along with both EPs came an eclectic string of self-directed visuals. Päter describes their sound as indie pop/rock drama, a mesh of scrappy rock sounds and emotionally charged storytelling.
