In an age where we’re more connected than ever thanks to technology, it’s creating some complex issues by weakening the interpersonal connection between people through these surface-level digital relationships.
Confronting this modern taboo head-on is Irish alt-pop songstress Rebekah Fitch with her aptly titled new single Need To Feel. Incorporating wonky pop aesthetics, she fuses both electronic and organic elements for a darkly sublime delivery of her emotive message. It’s important for artists to keep these perhaps difficult conversations going, turning monologues into dialogues and shedding light on what’s going in people’s minds.
“Need to Feel is a song written from a place of isolation with a desperation for more. 16-25s are now the loneliest group in the country. Why have we reached a stage where we struggle to let even the closest to us know what is really going on in our heads?”
