Flora Cash’s You’re Somebody Else hounds and whispers that secret dark self doubt, deep within ourselves. Worse yet, the notion amplifies the doubts about others: Lover, friend, family member, others along the way – achieving little, hurting all around.
Vicious cycle, it can be.
Vindictive, heavy on the shoulders.
At that immediate moment, very satisfying and justified.
But we lose it all, if not careful.
After all, if we push people away, then we just stand on our own.
The people just fall to the way-side, victims and collateral damage to your future regrettable vexations.
“I know you’re sleeping with her. Get out of my site! Don’t want to look at you any more. You make me sick!”
“I know he’s been eyeing you. Why are you letting him close to you!”
“You told me we’d be making profit on this venture. Why’d you lie to me? Why’d you steal from me??”
“Why weren’t you there for me when I desperately needed you?”
It’s always easy to pass judgement when one isn’t in another’s ‘shoes’, knowing exactly the ‘nuances’ that precipitated to that ultimate outcome.
But it’s easy to just cut people off as well.
Sometime justified. Sometimes, just out of haste.
Landmines are a plenty in our short lives.
Should we try to enjoy it as much as, reasonably, we can?
Love and Hate, just like anything else, is an exercise of balance and introspection.
Always hard to do.
But many times needed, and needed to be reminded of.
What a life, sometimes, ‘Life’ is.
This is a nifty pop song from Flora Cash. Nifty, because it’s a deep subject and with the style of what we’ve come to expect from the duo.
Nice stuff, we’d say.
The elemental emotional travels described by FC, in ‘You’re Somebody Else’ and the other songs they’d released, come to a unique and welcomed sensibility.
Kudo, Shpresa / Cole. Kudos.
They’re rep’ed by the fab label, Icons Creating Evil Art, hailing from Stockholm Sweden.
