“I was inspired by the Greek mythology of Sisyphus: endlessly rolling a giant boulder uphill, only to see it roll down in the end. It’s a metaphor for life: you keep building projects, but in the end, everything falls apart in life. This comes up mainly in the song Back To The Start, but the theme also returns in the song Old Town Cinema, where the focus is more on the nostalgic side of things falling apart. In this case: an old movie theatre stands for adolescence which inevitably ends for everyone.”
