Irish songwriter Luz returns with new single ‘i shouldn’t be here’.
The rising talent made her name during lockdown, recording music in private and sharing it with the world. Uncovering a deeply felt sense of connection, the intimacy of those recordings struck a chord with newfound fans.
Recently selling out her debut shows, Luz has now confirmed a trio of 2024 dates, including a show at London’s Lafayette on March 21st.
New single ‘i shouldn’t be here’ is utterly beautiful, the work of an artist who seems to feel each and every note. A song about mental health, informed by some of darkest moments, the single finds Luz yearning to see the light.
“This track was written during a time where I was experiencing really bad depression. I thought that the people close to me would be better off if I wasn’t in their lives anymore because of everything I put them through. For two years, I suffered with these thoughts constantly.”
“As the song progresses, the lyrics and mood starts to shift as I begin to work on my mental health. I started therapy and accepted help from the people who love and care about me. This song is really special to me and I hope that anyone who listens to it and relates to it can also feel hope that it will be okay in the end.”
Tune in now.
