Following on from his triumphant comeback single earlier this year (‘Running’), acclaimed UK artist VC Pines returns with a powerful new track entitled ‘Dangling’.
The song was inspired by the pain that comes from keeping too many thoughts locked in our minds, and serves as a reminder to be more open and accepting of help from others.
“’Dangling’ is a culmination of bad habits, late nights and broken relationships. BUT. The fact that these are exacerbated by things that are all in your head. I was put on lamotrigine after my epilepsy diagnosis and my moods would swing like Newton’s cradle. I thought that people were thinking things or saying things or that they were acting a certain way towards me due to reasons I’d made up in my head and eventually this tore down some strong relationships I had. Late nights and alcohol didn’t fix anything when I thought they would. Really, if I’d just asked questions, things could have been different. So ‘Dangling’ is a reminder to be open, and not fester in your own assumptions.“
‘Dangling’ was created alongside London-based producer Hoost, who is noted for his work with artists like Rina Sawayama, Olivia Nelson and Louis III.
After selling out Camden’s MAP Studio Cafe in January, VC Pines has now announced a headline show at London’s iconic Lafayette on the 15th September – tickets can be found here.
