I wrote this song earlier this year. I wasn’t sure what to record for the Tiny Desk Contest, so I did a couple of takes of this before submitting Louis.

Brittany and I were in Arizona in December 2012, 5 months after the Aurora theater shooting. We took a cab (it was 2012) to the zoo and I told the driver that we were from Aurora. We confirmed that, yes, it was the same Aurora, and he said something like “so, how was that?”
