A frantic, grungy guitar tune that confronts the feeling of being uncomfortable in your own skin, Francis of Delirium have shared their new single ‘Let It All Go’. Taken from the duo’s upcoming EP Wading, which is set for release via Dalliance Recordings, the track is a cathartic burst of energy that sees songwriter Jana Bahrich shake off the self doubt that starts to creep in when you feel inferior in a large social group.
“’Let It All Go’ chronicles a full commitment to isolation. It imagines me on a night out, drunk and babbling on about how sad I am,” Bahrich candidly explains. “Nobody wants to be around that person. At the heart of this song, away from all the craziness, is a desire to accept change and find acceptance within myself, letting go of holding onto any pain or hurt.” Through her commanding mix of loud-and-quiet vocals and her melodic guitar riffs, Bahrich pushes through these anxieties and purges her feelings of unease with gritty flair.
The track is accompanied by a superb claymation video which Bahrich created herself. It’s cut-and-paste style and fast-past editing reflect the feelings of angst and apprehension she sings about.
