Knyves Escobar Recollects a Past Version of Herself on “Phantom Limbs”

“Your memory feels like home to me.
So whenever my mind wanders, it always finds its way back to you.” – Ranata Suzuki

The fond memory of love gone astray — now lacking parts of you — now here’s the transition into a new version of yourself. It’s not a task of ease, but Maryland native, Knyves Escobar, does her best as she opens wounds.

“I miss who I was when I was with you,” she sings on the hook of the short but sweet song, a song that finds Knyves reminiscing about past parts of her, now lost in an old relationship. It’s less about the actual relationship and more about who she was in the relationship.

“With “Phantom Limb” and all my other songs, I take my past relationship problems and spin them into something that’s like a time capsule, in a way,” Knyves mentioned in her interview with Capital Sounds. “I’m distilling all of that emotion and anguish into one song and trying to summarize what I went through with that one situation.”
