The tracks on Among the Wolves EP Love Letter to the Broken include, “Runaway”, “Oh Well”, and “Tonight”. The opening track on the EP (“Runaway”) focuses on the pain that we often encounter throughout life and the fact that we will always have one another to lean on through those difficult times. “Oh Well” is about getting older and letting go of relationships that hold you back. The chorus of “Oh Well” is a reminder that life is too short to cling to toxic people, and that it’s the people who are always there for us that we should cherish. “Tonight” is the final rallying cry of the EP. It’s meant as an anthem for those who feel beaten down by life, those who are told their dreams aren’t realistic and those who just don’t quite fit in. The song echoes “tonight’s the night we show the world” to remind us that you should always stand up for who you are and never be ashamed of that.
