Nuutti tells the story behind the single:
“Valtameri speaks about how difficult it is to confront old traumas face to face, and how, despite the fear, facing them can be the best thing a person can do for themselves.
The lyrics of the song ask: can I let go of this battle against the past? What happens if I let this part of myself die?
The inspiration for the lyrics came from my personal exploration of the shadow self introduced by Carl Jung, as well as the merging of these analytical thoughts into my own meditation practice, which has acted as a catalyst between the unconscious and conscious mind.
The lyrics also address the nature of the human self. Is there a permanent self, or is it an optical illusion that disappears upon closer examination? However, we cannot act without our own personality, and in every moment, we choose consciously or unconsciously a perspective through which we view the world. This labyrinth of perspectives is the foundation upon which humanity is built, and it has no beginning or end.
The composition of the song came about when I discovered an interesting chord on my guitar and combined it with a pattern that follows a 23/8 time signature. This pattern, which appears at the beginning of the song, evoked a unique marine atmosphere that complemented the composition.
The structure of the song is meandering and reflects the ocean, which is sometimes calm, but at other times is caught in a violent storm. After the storm, however, the ocean returns to tranquility.”
In addition to the band leader Nuutti Hannula, the band includes keyboardist Ilari Hannula and guitarist Matias Lehtoranta, who also handles the band’s mixing and mastering.
