Speaking about the song, kav said,

The core of ‘dissolve’ is about processing feelings of shame and the frustrations that come in underachieving. I through-wrote it on an acoustic guitar on a Summers evening in May over lockdown, and only changed one or two lyrics since, so I guess it’s is a pretty good indication of how I was feeling at the time. The recording process was pretty smooth really, half of it was recorded in various studios and my sister, Poppy’s flat in London; and then bass and drums were tracked in Brooklyn.
