“I’ve always loved anime art and I was ecstatic when I got to write a song for an anime game that revolved around female empowerment,” shares¬†Stirling. “It was also perfect because I wrote this song at an all-female writing camp. It’s about how even when you feel broken, you are so incredibly powerful. It’s in the moments of near defeat that you chart your truest fate because the way you react when you’re at the bottom really shows what you’re made of.”
