Admittedly this isn’t something I usually feature on the site but it’s such a pop banger that I had to share it with you. Specially in these grim times, a bop like this could lift the spirits a little.
The song features KEiiNO – who placed first with the public vote at Eurovision 2019 with ‘Spirit In The Sky’ while Electric Fields are an ARIA-nominated outfit who merge Aboriginal culture with electro sounds.
“This song, like the whole EP, is very introspective. it revolves around the feeling of not being in a healthy state. it switches back and forth between singing to myself in third person, and from myself in first person – which symbolises a certain duality and disorientation. self love and self criticism.”
The debut EP ‘Echo Emotions’ is set to drop on May 8th.
“In a way this song is about the process of confessing to oneself that you’re a bit of coward in some situations, and maybe specifically when it comes to relationships. It’s not exactly a happy song. But not that sad either really. I guess it’s also about realising that you have some unrealistic expectations when it comes to relationships, and the frustration that comes with it.”
This is by far the most liberating song I’ve ever written! It’s a big f*** you anthem to anxiety! Like many others I’ve been struggling with it for a long time… hopefully this can lift people’s spirit and I hope people will connect with it and scream out the lyrics!! I really want it to reach as many as possible and help create a big “f*** you” wave towards anxiety!! I know it won’t solve any deep issues people might have, but hopefully it can make someone feel less lonely.”
