Amy Studt has released not long ago her single Overdose, a wonderful piece of music. I adore the piano-driven melodies which are unique and create an innovative soundscape. Moreover, the vocal performance is grandiose, Amy has such a powerful voice. Furthermore, I am also a big fan of the dynamic musical elements!
The story behind the track is just like the sound very impressive. Amy says about it: ”I think this may be the only song I didn’t record with Toby. I wrote it after a few overdose attempts and when I was finally placed in a psychiatric facility, which happened to have a piano in it, I wrote this song there during my recovery. Straight after Ieft hospital I flew back to New York and recorded it with Matt Boynton in Brooklyn. It’s about isolation, being haunted by the past and the present, and being at the end. The “life in me” line was because when I made the last attempt I felt the life seeping out of me and out of the back door of my house up into the air and the night sky: that back door where I would sit and smoke and look at the night sky every night. I wanted to erase it all, everything that connected me to anyone. Every memory, every picture, and just disappear. It’s also about in that moment of finality: remembering the simplicity and beauty of the beginning of falling in love; feeling very alone and wishing you could go back and some small hope pulls you back.”
