Few things hurt more than those early days after a break-up when feelings are dark and emotions are raw.
This song is a perfect encapsulation of those vibes, and provides a stunning introduction to a British talent who has already worked alongside the likes of Nina Nesbitt and Kwassa, and had support from the likes of BBC Radio 1.
“I was in the beginning of a pretty heavy break up. We knew it had finished but it was hard to sink in. The song is about anger, betrayal and the explosive emotional expression of ‘F*CK YOU’ to both your ‘friend’ and your ex who you feel betrayed you. The release of the chorus in the song mirrors the release of emotion I was feeling after I saw my ex and a friend leave a bar together – ‘Are you going for afters? I know you’re going for afters.’ I tried to mask my upset and dismiss my anger by putting on a brave, sarcastic face, and followed an adrenaline fuelled pursuit to get absolutely wasted alone. Hoping drink by drink it would soften the blow. It did…but the elephant never left the room.”
