Hayley Williams released this track back in January 2020 or what I like to call January BC (Before COVID), and this was the hit I needed to hear this morning. I would describe it as an Indie-Pop slightly alternative track which Hayley takes us lyrically through her experience with abuse. The music video is of Haley running through a forest late at night being chased by someone. She finds herself in a house and when the person arrives she knocks them out with a bowl. The person ends up being herself .. and if that doesn’t give you a mind fuck around how we all are chased by our own internal demons then I don’t know what will.
I’ve loved Hayley’s voice way back to her Paramore Only Exception days. I am looking forward to seeing her solo career grow as well as what Paramore does next.
