“Phony Oxygen” largely consists of hypnotic vocal lines reminiscent of Deftones, only to then explode into a pulsating bass and a guitar riff inspired by Staind's early albums. As the band stated, the song “expresses the feeling we have when we try to breathe, but it’s like nothing’s coming in. A child, rationally, tries to analyze the origin of that feeling. A passion, as a force, that bears another feeling: anger. For this reason there’s a compulsive/corrosive riff, a flow of ambient sounds, a delicate crescendo voice and a final explosion.

Anger and the need to fight for one's life are represented in the video by Martina Righi, who in 2022 won the title of Italian lightweight boxing champion.

ATTEMPT TO SOMEBODY’S LIFE is an anthem of radical change to a vital reset. It arises from the survival instinct of 4 individuals who had set aside music and are now grabbed by the hair and pulled back into it. Because passion is a flame that cannot be tamed; it may dwindle almost to extinction, lie dormant, but ultimately, it reignites and burns again!

“Phony Oxygen” was recorded and mixed at Grs. Mastered by Tommy Bianchi at White Sound studios.
