Rising songwriter IAKO has come a long way. Relocating from his native Venice to London, he experienced a lot along the route, continually absorbing new information at every turn.

Born from a period of reflection, the song dwells on the two aspects of his personality, and wonders where he will end up. IAKO explains:
"Contrary to what most people think, Bloodbath isn’t about the end of a relationship; it’s an open letter to myself regarding the internal changes I’ve felt since rapidly having to adapt to so different an environment as London. I wrote it at some point last year when I was missing the ‘old me’. I tried to get outside of myself and write about what seemed like an irreconcilable split within my personality - London and Venice..."
