When asked about the inspiration behind his latest EP, Gallowayyys delved into the complexness of gender and identity, saying, "Lately, I’ve been exploring the complexities between feminine nature and the masculine frame. With each new song, I try to add to the universe I’m building. For too long, I felt mentally stuck.

All of which I’ve been pouring into my music."
