The first strxwberrymilk track I heard was surprisingly not My Head Hurts, but Life of an Ordinary Schoolgirl. When I first heard this track, I saw strxw’s potential as an artist. As the time passed, and we spent more time together, me and strxw talked frequently. I think to this day, he is one of my closest friends.
Me and strxwberrymilk had a fairly strong artistic vision for GAIA, it was a pleasure working with Pushopian on the album art.
I think GAIA shows perfectly how strxw’s sound had evolved throughout his first year as a musician. The improvement between blue marble and GAIA was definitely quite noticeable.
