Here’s Jo Whitby, aka Laurence Made Me Cry, with a track of such fragile beauty and brutal honesty it fair takes away your breath.
In the notes alongside the release, Whitby says “I’ve been struggling significantly with my mental health in recent months.I’m no stranger to depression and anxiety but this particular episode is being particularly brutal. I wanted to express musically how I’ve been feeling and this is the result. Something a little different.”
Anyone who has been struggling in the same way will relate and while the depths are plumbed, it ends on a positive. You are stronger than the sickness and you have to believe that.
