Adrian Conner releases hard-hitting EP “Hiss Kiss Hiss”

The leading track Worship is an instrumental track. “This would be probably my first track that isn’t super fast. That has some space and some atmosphere. I love Heartless Bastards song Arrow and the Beast. So it’s probably taken from that and Good Bad and the Ugly.” The second track No Collusion is specially crafted, as the lyrical content of this song is to point out how our macro problems are reflections of our micro problems. This is also about the disintegration of a relationship. And choosing to accept it. Choosing to be thankful for the painful lesson. And to walk away from a transgression with love towards the transgressor. The third track Butterfly is choosing to learn and grow from people who have harmed you. It may or may not be easy to let them go, but it’s the self-realization that you’re better off without their unnecessary stress that leads the decision.
