Leading man Jordy Lane  from Sydney outfit Shady Lane, has revealed to theMusic that writing the album proved to be a 'huge mental struggle'.

In a recent interview, Lane explained, "After I wrote the first album I got into some dark headspaces, which was pretty unhealthy, and writing the whole thing proved to be a huge mental struggle."

"I felt at times that I didn't enjoy writing whatsoever, and I had to push myself to keep going. I'm really glad with the way things turned out, and that perseverance really brought out some things that I may not have been able to achieve normally. The process left me feeling positive and healthy, and allowed me to see that dark hole for what it was. I don't think I'll be heading back down there any time soon.”

The trio's second LP, Built Guilt, explores darker realms of the human consciousness, all the while mainting a breezy nature of instrumentation.
