Michel Villares, singer, producer and also responsible for the lyrics of “My Demons”, was initially influenced by the conflict in Ukraine and Russia, creating an anti-war theme trying, in some way, to show solidarity with the people of these countries, but as the theme developed other forms of war were being addressed. “Not only the war for territory, which is already something unacceptable in today’s world, but the fight against the ghosts of depression and suicide were incorporated into the story”, Michel comments. “Life is already like a battlefield, an inner war, so it was a way to achieve catharsis. The tip is always to forgive yourself for those you couldn’t save, as there are situations that the outcomes are not up to us”, he concludes.
