Nothing is as okay as it seems. Nothing is as hard as it turned out to be. But during the journey, nothing seems more overwhelming, and so real.
From love to hate; to contentment and anxiety – margø’s single, ‘someone else’, is a relinquishing of those stresses and addressing the issue straight on.
“Sometimes you feel as though you have to hide what you’re going through and pretend that everything is okay. Anxiety can make you feel so isolated at times – so I hope that with this song the discussion around mental health continues to be normalized, and that listeners can feel as though whatever they’re going through, they aren’t going through it alone.”
Canadian born margø (Cassidy Margolis) has always been captivated by music and its ability to provide a common ground for people of all backgrounds. From an early age, she had always wanted to create honest music with the intention of empowering those who listen to her words.
Added margø: “In this song, anxiety is personified as someone I’m in a bad relationship with – because at times, that’s really how it feels. There can be such a push and pull between good times and bad times, and “someone else” is meant to comment on how anxiety (and all of the emotions that come with it) can sometimes make me feel like I’m disconnected from my normal self.”
Thoughtful and certain her steps, margø sings for the challenges we all face – and ultimately have to conquer.
