Using the quarantine to hunker down and continue to write the three track EP, Ryan and Anna were inspired by a variety of genres ranging from folk to pop. Keeping in mind the balance between interesting and over-complicated, they utilized new tools such as Ryan's electronic drum pad and orchestral strings to push the sound. "The concept was to simplify our songs, but focus on using different sounds, riffs and instruments to keep them really fascinating. We wanted to get to the roots of what makes a good song," Anna commented. This gives rom coms + take out an eclectic alternative sound that is heavily mixed with fresh indie melodies and vocals."We had a lot of fun with this one. We got really deep into synths and Ryan's new Alesis electronic drum pad. This track is meant to make you smile, if the song doesn't we hope the video does. I started writing it last summer when I was touring and craving time alone at home, but eventually adjusted the lyrics to show some perspective shifts after our state's mandated quarantine. Nothing cheers me up more than rom-coms and good take-out, so I hope this song can be a bit of that for everyone who needs it right now. "With the debut of rom-coms + take-out marking a huge step in The Vaughns' career, they feel that it demonstrates a new beginning. This EP, produced by Joe Reinhart (Joyce Manor, Modern Baseball, Hop Along) follows the main theme of finding oneself as chapters close and others begin to open. "It's okay to fail, as long as you get back up," Ryan added on. The Vaughns have some very exciting chapters in store, and this EP is like reading the back cover of a compelling novel - the best is yet to come.
