We were incredibly close to just releasing the original voice memo of this song. We wrote it in 10 minutes and were like “ok welp, that happened – now let’s write a real song.” Somewhere along the way, “Fuck Ohio” became a real song. It’s about everything and everybody and also about nothing and nobody. The line can sometimes be razor thin.

A ton of conversations with very big, knee slapping laughs inspired HI T LO IQ. Lyrics only make it into songs if the members of Fast Friends laugh about how ridiculous it is that it could be a lyric in a song. After having made a ton of music throughout their lives, it felt incredibly good to just say whatever they wanted to say and have it sound however they wanted it to sound with full control and also the full capacity to really make it something good.
Music for music’s sake is super boring. It only matters if you are saying something that you are desperate to say, that you are scared to say, and that you don’t think anyone else is going to say.
