Check out a quote from Slow Shudder below and under that stream her new single “Just As You Are”, enjoy!
“I wrote “Just As You Are” when I was falling in love with someone who struggles with confidence. However, the more I developed it, the more I realized that it was for anyone who has difficulties with self-doubt, including myself. We live in a world where the comparison trap can often feel unavoidable. It’s hard to escape the effects of constantly seeing everyone else’s perfectly crafted performative selves through a screen. I often have to remind myself and others that what’s on that screen is almost always carefully curated and edited, and that it’s hard to avoid feeling inadequate when holding yourself up to an unrealistic standard.”
