“With ‘The Almost’ we wanted to dive into the dangers of comparing yourself and your achievements to the people around you,” comment the band. “It is all too easy to see the often manipulated, idyllic versions of people’s lives on social media and come to the conclusion that you’re missing out, that you’re not living life to the fullest. To be stuck in a place where you feel like your life has not begun is a horrible and unnecessary feeling, and we wanted to put a name to it. That’s where ‘The Almost’ comes in. 

“Our version of this place, ‘The Almost’, is a sort of limbo. It serves as an allegory for these comparisons, trapping us and getting in the way of self fulfilment and happiness. The results of this process are seen in this darker, more corrupted reflection of Cherry that has taken over in the visuals, serving as a personification of the dangers of being trapped in vicious cycles like this one.”

‘The Almost’ follows previous singles ‘The Curse‘ s and ‘Gold In The Dark‘.
