VogueDots (1)

The relaxed synth melody of Vogue Dot‘s latest dream pop master piece masks the tortured, soul wrenching core of “If You Stay”. The band explains the message of the emotional track:

“When we first wrote ‘If You Stay’, the melody and song structure were written on piano, along with the first line,’Hey, If you stay, I won’t judge you, I won’t play.’ The rest of the lyrics were written a few years later when going through a tumultuous relationship. The main idea behind the song is witnessing self-destructive behaviour in someone you love, that ultimately affects the people they care about the most.”
