This is Stray Fossa’s return to the spotlight after 6 months with one of their bounciest and most energetic tracks yet. The standalone track is a departure from their typical dreamy sound as the band explores a more up-tempo, bouncy, and energetic performance.
The band describes the making of “For What Was” as a burst of creative energy that all came out at once.
Will came up with the lyrics and melody for the chorus “something I could be the first to know…” etc. in one breath. “Normally, we wouldn’t hold onto scratch lyrics, but it’s hard to shy away from rare moments like that when it all kind of comes together at once.” In the verse transitions you can hear the sound of bicycle spokes that were recorded with a phone.
