Brey shares, “having hit some of my lowest moments in life with these mental health issues, I really wanted to capture those raw emotions of what it’s like living with these issues through lyrics such as, ‘I’m dodging daggers through my mind’s minefield.’ By sharing ‘Getaway Car’ with people, I wanted to give the message of hope and escape. That where you may be, isn’t where you have to stay”.
BLAZAR comments on the remix, “I love dichotomies in music. I wanted it to be this laid back kind of organic lounge-ish type of vibe; more “in your head” than the hit the pavement driven and linear path of the original. This song really has a special place in my heart being the co-writer with Aubrey on the track. It was a ton of fun to re-imagine”.
