“My first album,” van Dijck says, “was me being in love, and the second album definitely has an after-love vibe. Not to say a bad vibe, but more like an ‘Okay, what happens after that relationship and how do you deal with it, how do you move on?’ The bitter-sweetness of that, the beautiful memories yet the sad fact that it didn’t work out, for example.”
