“How I” began as an instrumental after Sirken watched a plethora of 80’s films (Cocktail, Lost Boys etc) that influenced a dark and gloomy deep sub synth feel, and while being gloomy at the time, he entitled the original song “This Is How I Feel.” Belle Jewel shuffled through a myriad of Sirken’s tracks, taking a liking to “This Is How I Feel.” They held a couple of sessions where melodies and lyrics were finalized, and what naturally came out from her was exactly what the track needed; a deep sense of desire for purpose.
h2the liked what he heard, but wanted to make it bigger and more dynamic, so he re-worked it for the Alt Version (a.k.a. Remix) with REV-ENG. The collaboration came together when h2the reached out to James Chul Rim (REV-ENG) after hearing Willow’s “Wait A Minute” come on Spotify, which he produced, on Spotify. He was blown away by the style and the two connected on their own sonic synergies. “How I” combines Belle’s ethereal voice and retro-inspired vocal style, with a mix of soul, dream-pop, and hip-hop sonics.
