“Tiny Raindrop is about wanting someone,” says singer/guitarist Jon Simmons.  “It’s a vision of being with someone you are infatuated with but eventually letting them down. You know when you’re driving on a really nice day and everything is great and then you see that first raindrop on your windshield and it instantly ruins your day because you know what’s coming? That’s me in a relationship.  The line “I’ll be your tiny raindrop” is me giving a warning that while everything is great at first, I will be the first to ruin things. I don’t like this about myself but I felt I needed to be honest and say that. The song does have a positive outlook though. I want to be in love and stay in it so badly but this song is me battling with that.”


Produced by Will Yip (Title Fight, Man Overboard, Circa Survive), mixed by Brad Wood (Sunny Day Real Estate, Smashing Pumpkins) and mastered by Emily Lazar (Foo Fighters, Against Me!), The Things We Think We’re Missing is Balance and Composure’s second full-length album and follow-up to 2011’s critically heralded release Separation.
