A buoyant synth-pop tune that’s laced with bittersweet realisations about heartbreak, London-based songwriter ACTRESE has shared her latest single ‘It Might Be About You’. Following on from her previous single ‘LOLA’, this latest track sees the songwriter release the tension of holding her tongue via heady beats, direct lyrics and clear vocals.
“After my last single, which felt very thought through, planned and executed in the same way, I needed a change,” ACTRESE explains. “‘It Might Be About You’ feels like something that was on my mind and needed to get out of my system. It is personal. It is candid to the point, it is impossible to describe as anything else than the truth. It comes from a place of anger and frustration of coming to conclusions in the aftermath of heartbreak when I didn’t even realize there was something to be broken. And then the anxiety. The anxiety of not being able to speak my mind and heart for various reasons.”
Pushing through her uneasy feelings and finding confidence in her new sound thanks to producer William Baxter, ACTRESE is letting go of the pain that held her back, embracing a new way of writing and creating her alt-pop sounds.
