Having been raised as part of the Seventh-day Adventist church, devotion intermingles with scepticism around the religious industrial complex as SIPHO. reconciles his own relationship with God throughout his early tracks. Running alongside that is an exploration of another kind of duality – Black male identity – which is continued on the new EP. Across six songs, ‘SHE MIGHT BLEED’ dives further into themes of hyper-masculinity – “how that affects me, and how that affects some of my friends,” SIPHO. explains. “The things I've seen happen as a result of how a lot of boys can [become] what we’re expected to be, and how we end up being because of circumstance.”
