Take It Slow exemplifies this distinctive sound, as the track seamlessly navigates through a sonic soundscape of synth and guitar lines, complemented by Ana’s hypnotic vocal performance.

The inspiration for Take It Slow stems from a profound moment in Père Lachaise cemetery, where Ana, surrounded by the history-laden gravestones, paid a visit to the resting place of a young Jim Morrison. The experience served as a poignant muse for crafting the reflective lyrics that intertwine seamlessly with the melodic harmonies throughout the track.

Speaking about the track, Ana Galeli reflects, “I think time is something we take for granted, especially in a future-focused society. None of us are guaranteed tomorrow, but an end is certain. So while we have this moment, now – why not spend time with time.”
