Words: ROBIN MUMFORD
Whether we are introverts, extroverts, or a mix of both and thus ambiverts, there is no denial among anyone that the human psyche demands social interaction.
By nature, we are always desperate to be good enough in all walks of life. To search for happiness, and to feel like we belong.
This, for many of us, isn’t a reality that seems, well, realistic, however.
It is for this reason, Clare Easdown felt the urge to create a song to not only take us on a journey through the hearts of the depressed, vulnerable, and the ‘absolutely hopeless’, but to also give those who feel there is no light at the end of the tunnel an outlet – to be felt, heard, and seen.
She does so through the electronic palpitations of “I Break” – her newest release that allows her to let loose pent-up frustration from a period of depression.
Inspired by Grimes, FKA Twigs, CHVRCHES, among other multifaceted musicians, the dark elements of man’s blossoming relationship with machines are palpable in Clare’s latest clamber out from the shadows.
Together with Jeremy Burns, she shows off her ability to compose electronic sound with free-flowing melodies and meaningful lyricism to successfully pull off a well-balanced end product.
Although an outlet for her struggling listeners, “I Break” is far more than just a cry for help or a platform for others to reach out – it acts as a precursor to a musician’s limitless ceiling. Clare Easdown is brimming with raw talent, and upon each release, she proves so.
