A lot of my songs have double meanings and I love writing about the weather as an allegory. The month of March can be really awful—it's cold and blustery and grey, and you're just so ready for Spring to come. The Hardest March is also about that transition time between the ending of a relationship and the beginning of a new chapter. That sort of bleak space in between can be kind of tough.
Hill Baker on percussion and Kyle Zender on electric guitar and bass were really brilliant in creating a mood, along with cool harmonies by Chris Woods and Thom Flora. I love the texture and the stormy atmosphere of the song.
