Indie pop duo Highway Flowers consists of California/New York Producer Retrograded (Jackson Klarsfeld) and Milwaukee singer/songwriter Ryan Gorski. The two met through an instagram ad and soon began passing music back and forth over the internet. Having never met in person, they wrote their music over facetime calls, texted videos, and voice notes. Slice is their debut single, of which they say:
Slice is about a relationship that you know isn’t working out, but you still hold on because you can’t let go of that perfect image of what it could be. You know you shouldn’t reach out, but you just can’t resist, pretending it’s all fine when really its time to let go.
