“I wrote this song as a coping mechanism for a breakup. Lemons are, taste-wise, a rather sour fruit. But they actually have a very high sugar content, which makes them sweeter- I would say that the word bittersweet is a perfect way to sum up what grief is: it’s bitter because it hurts, but it’s sweet because it opens the door to something. I wrote this song the night I got dumped, and it was almost impossible for me to play the song without sobbing hysterically on the third verse.
A few days after writing this song, my parents told me that as a graduation present, they had coordinated a recording session with Van Plating. They weren’t going to tell me until Christmas (I got home mid-December) but they wanted to give me something to look forward to, and I was pretty depressed after not having the best four months. I quickly shared this song with Van in all its tearful, incomprehensible glory (I’m pretty sure the voice memo I sent him made me gasp to hold back the tears). – book. Explain
“You Squeezed All the Juice Out of Me”, book. sings on “Lemon,” a perfect way to describe a “It’s not you, it’s me” breakup. The moving tune features a heartfelt narrative and lovely vocals that will resonate well with fans of Brennan Leigh, Rachel Yamagata and Fiona Apple. Additionally, “Lemon” boasts guitar-laden instrumentation flavored with indie-rock, alternative country, and Americana/folk elements.
“When I arrived at Van’s studio in Lakeland, Florida, Van offered to turn this song into something a little faster and indie-rock than I had originally written it. This idea of changing the tone of the song made me realize that the song itself is actually something that could arguably be described as denial. This song also inspired me to cultivate work that explores the stages of grief and growth in a relationship.
Turning this once gory story into an indie-rock anthem, Van thought it would be cool to find a male voice to accompany mine. I remember staying in her kitchen and browsing through her Spotify listening to her friend’s song. When we heard Nathan Kalish, it was an instant “this is him” moment. Nathan’s voice is super unique, and I feel like his voice on this song ties everything I wanted to convey together with a nice arc. – book. Explain
