It's a beautiful moment of self-reflection and an understated production style made possible with an effervescent lead vocal and a straight Pop arrangement. It's an an exercise in double-speak, with the main lyrical theme stressing the need to get out, and the warm and fuzzy mix keeping us in.
Willemijn was born and raised in a small village, and here she brings years of life experience together to craft a simple Electronic-inspired confection. It's a message about what happens when we are left alone for too long, and the tangled webs we weave around ourselves. Suddenly we have the feeling we are someone we did not plan to be.
Willemijn May is a singer-songwriter from the Netherlands.
