Kim about 'Solstice'

Ricky, Scarlett and myself wrote  'Solstice' after some really tragic stories that we were hearing about a few years back, dealing with teenage suicide. We wrote this really hard-hitting ballad as a response to that. It's the way it made me feel emotionally. It was very powerful. We used my love of Elton John to inspire the backing vocals which run throughout the song, sung by Ricky. A very personal song, and a little bit sad. (Track by track video, YouTube, March 23, 2018)
