Feeling stuck in life can mean different things to different people, but there are some common themes. Often, people feel stuck when they feel like they’re not moving forward. They may feel like they’re in a dead-end job, in a bad relationship, or living in a place they don’t want to be. They may feel like they’re not fulfilling their potential or like they’re just going through the motions day-by-day. If this sounds like you, know that you’re not the only one. Many people feel stuck at some point in their lives.
I Care by UK singer-songwriter Maddie Ashman explores the anxieties and uncertainties that come with being a young adult in today’s world. It reflects the confusion of not knowing where to go next. The song is written as a conversation with herself, as Maddie tries to make sense of what she sees around her.
When it comes to contemporary pop music, guitar-led convention tends to reign supreme. So when an song like I Care comes along and flips the script, placing the cello at the forefront of the mix, it’s a breath of fresh air.
