For Ananya, 24, these are a deeply personal collection of songs. In a statement, Ananya Birla said, "This EP is really authentic to me and my own experiences. It's mostly about love - the good and the bad. I wanted to cover the holistic journey, from falling in love to heartbreak to reconciliation. It took me a while to realise that life isn't all about competing to a finish line - something which I've often struggled to do. It's about enjoying every step of the journey."
