His tender vocal delivery and the restrained production style paint a vivid picture of the loneliness that can creep up on you. The brooding synth washes and looming bassline tower ominously like the cold, endless sprawl while his sweetly sung vocals worry with increasing intensity about the toll that heartless city life is taking on him.
Speaking with Complex via email, Connolly explained: "I wrote 'Scared To Go Home' after a night out in NYC. There are times when nightlife feels incredibly depressing and lonely — everyone desperately reaching out for one another, getting way too drunk, trying to make a connection. I wanted to capture that feeling in a song that's just as much a party song as a moment of self-reflection. I felt this was the perfect introduction to my full-length project releasing on Mind Of A Genius later this year. The project will explore these inner dialogues of searching for connection and meaning."
