Bitter Charm represents the turmoil and resolution of coming to terms with all transitions in life, voluntarily or involuntarily. It celebrates nostalgia for its contribution to the present, and what it takes to arrive at where we each are today. It's sentimental, equal parts melancholy and joyful, a feeling that lingers into the present.
