Being in your twenties is an exhilarating yet confusing time, and “No Ends” displays the personal strife of having to figure that out. Horst explores how to set boundaries, learn and maybe unlearn life habits, and simply understand how to let things be in his newest single.
“No Ends” is a reflection of introspective thinking, learning about yourself and the people around you, and the feelings those actions evoke. The song is now available to stream worldwide on all music platforms. Stay tuned for a music video, set to be released April 7th, followed by his upcoming EP, First Dose, due later this year.
