About Anyone Else, Zach says: "In Anyone Else, I consider the unexpected feeling of self-shame that ensues once you have been broken up with. It is a retrospective comparison of the sentiment felt by both parties in the aftermath, with a focus on the bitterness and resentment that I had to deal with. This resentment is not, as some may presume, towards her new partner, but instead is directed towards how seamless the transition was for her. It describes my struggle to come to terms with how quickly she was capable of moving on and meeting someone new, while to this day, I still struggle to engage in a conversation with a woman without feeling an insurmountable sense of guilt, shame and sadness."

Rest Stop is the latest single to come from New York-based singer-songwriter Mae Krell, and the perfect song to convey the complex emotions surrounding a loss of a friendship. The lyrics feel raw and sentimental, painful but comforting, embodying the reality of such an emotional time.
Mae says on the song: "In writing rest stop, I was learning that sometimes getting healthier and becoming more independent can end in a loss of a relationship. And, as this specific friendship ended, I started to realize that maybe it wasn't as good for me as I thought it was.”
