“’What You Are’ is about the fine line split between friendship and indifference. No matter how hard you try to salvage a relationship, sometimes you just have to walk away,” frontwoman Mimi Telmo explains.
Not only are the song and video both important to her, but the band’s collaboration with JJ Peters was a dream for Telmo, too.
“I've always been a Deez Nuts fan, and when meeting JJ (Peters) in person, I saw that he is not only a great frontman, but also a lovely person. Over the years we became good friends and we always have a great time when we share a stage together,” Telmo explains. “While writing this song, I felt it was perfect for JJ and I love how it turned out!”
