Delyn Grey from Toronto, Ontario has released a new Alternative Rock single that made her dig down deep inside herself. “This one hurt,” she says earnestly. “The craziest part was discovering how much pain I was ignoring, and how I had accepted that as a norm. I couldn’t package this one up in pop chords and upbeat shit. It had to sound how I felt.” She continues to say, “Battle is me acknowledging that I was happily drowning in my self-deprecation. It filled this twisted void that ran deeper and deeper the more I gave in to it, but there was always this voice that fought against the heaviness. I eventually let it get louder, and I fought. Fighting gave me purpose, and this song granted me control of the uncontrollable. I wrote this song in the throes of it all. It helped me process all that was happening, and still happens, up in here “she says pointing to her head. As you can see, doing a song about depression can be hard, yet beautiful as well.
With the piano leading off the track and taking it by its throat, the song just gets deeper and more melancholy, yet beautiful due to the amazing voice of Grey. You can hear the rawness of her emotions come through loud and clear. The rest of the band comes in and just pushes the song into greatness as the vocals just overwhelm you. A very deep and sombre song that the pain just gets into your soul and as beautiful as it all is, it’s just so sad at the same time that people have to go through things this tough.
A fantastic track that the more that you listen to it, the better it gets and it just draws you in and sticks with you. I can’t wait to hear more from Grey and hopefully, this will help get some of the depression sorted for her.
