Artist Statement: "John Stuart Mill was written for moments spent on the verge of affirming a belief with action, when you've realized that your conviction must move you to change. It takes its name from a nineteenth century English philosopher who, with the support of his long time friend and wife, wrote at length about social and civil liberty (among other things) and fought to express a new idea - to create the potential for change. This recording was tracked live in a beautiful studio above the blistering streets of Williamsburg, Brooklyn in the dead heat of the summer less than a week before I LOW's departure for the opposite coast. I LOW has undergone many changes - locational, musical, existential, and so on. This song was made for those times of fear and veracity."
