KRISTEN MAY tells Yahoo!, "we explored the idea of the attraction or magnetism you can feel with someone you love; how incredibly powerful that force of nature can be. Even if you're apart, you still feel them as if they are right by your side. They can fill up the dark parts in you. They remind you why you're living, make you happier than anyone else and inspire you with a glance. It's pretty incredible when you realize the power we have to love and be loved as humans and how we can feel so drawn or attracted to that object of our affection. It's a gift." SAMEER BHATTACHARYA adds, "the creation of Between The Stars was exhilarating and emotional. We delved uninhibited into the music and lyrics realizing the awesome empowerment and releasing the heavy burdens that lie hidden in deep corners of our hearts."
