CHET had this to say about the record:

"I recorded the album at my home studio. I rent a small converted cooling room in the heritage listed North Melbourne meat market.  Honesty is a big part of the record.  I recorded with easily affordable equipment, the budget was tiny.  It’s the first time I’ve ever worked on a full length and I felt like hi-fidelity wasn't something to strive for working in a room on my own.  Lyrically, I wanted to explore how my life directly affected my music - that’s the glass, I guess.'
