The song is about a relationship that didn't really work out, mixed with a wave of depression that clouded my horizon for a while. It's about power, weakness, manipulation and ego in relationships. When I wrote it, I felt very alone but at the same time too proud to show it or to ask for attention. I felt like nobody could understand me because I was stuck in a reality that I knew was tinged with darkness because of my state of mind.
Writing about love is a way for me to understand and connect with my inner beliefs, to take some intuitive thoughts seriously and it's also a space to be a little dramatic. Writing about your feelings always seems like a very intimate process, but at the same time, love is the most global feeling there is. Everyone can identify with love stories. I remember singing Angel Olsen's "Unfucktheworld" over and over again feeling like she was speaking for me. I think there's something very comforting about realising that we're not alone with our dark thoughts and that the emotions triggered by a break-up don't have to isolate us, they're just part of a perfectly normal process.
