"5pm, sleepy was recorded after long sessions of unsuccessful attempts to record the third song 'TheKiteThatFled' and a few sleepless nights, when I came home pretty much unable to move from exhaustion, but somehow, for some reason, suddenly felt the urge to record a one-take of the song. I turned on my microphone, grabbed my guitar and started playing. I liked the outcome so I recorded another song, 'TheTidesSwallowedUsWhole'. Then I realized I had created something of a mood, so I recorded a cover of one of my all time favorite songs, "Anchor". That's when I realized I may as well make an EP out of it, so I recorded two more songs. One of them later didn't make it on the EP, the other one was one of the first songs I ever learned on guitar, "Ocean"." - Homes
