Holly Humberstone – “Falling Asleep at the Wheel” Vevo DSCVR performance
“I wrote this song a while ago while still unsure of who I wanted to be and where I wanted to head musically. Writing this song was probably the first time I felt like I knew who I was within the music I was making.” – Holly Humberstone

Holly Humberstone – “Falling Asleep at the Wheel” music video
“The track is about losing momentum and feeling like your emotions will slowly destroy the relationship you’re in and you altogether. I think the dark, wonky sonics define who I am musically. Which is why ‘Falling Asleep at the Wheel’ is such a milestone track for me. And it has taught me so much about myself as a musician. We created the song at the house I grew up in, which is very old and falling apart, in the middle of the countryside. You can almost hear the weird sounds of the house within the track. It’s where I feel the most me and love that this is all coming from that one place.” – Holly Humberstone
