With an ever-increasing awareness of mental health throughout society, education, culture and of course music, Ruben Dawnson joins the conversation to say, or rather shout, “fuck you anxiety, leave me alone.” These words bounce along intricate guitar melodies and driving percussion in Dawnson’s pop perfect vocals, which while derived from a place of liberation, still retain an honest melancholia.
Speaking about this new-found freedom, Dawnson says:
“This is by far the most liberating song I’ve ever written! It’s a big fuck you anthem to anxiety! Like many others I’ve been struggling with it for a long time… hopefully this can lift people’s spirit and I hope people will connect with it and scream out the lyrics!! I really want it to reach as many as possible and help create a big “fuck you” wave towards anxiety!! I know it won’t solve any deep issues people might have, but hopefully it can make someone feel less lonely.”
We certainly feel less lonely listening to ‘FYALMA’ and we’re looking forward to hearing more from this young Norwegian musician and producer.
