The lyrics of Joyeur’s new song, Destroyer, really resonate with us. We’ve all experienced this at some point in our lives – we want to open up and be vulnerable, but we’re scared that if we do, we’ll get hurt. So we put up walls, and protect ourselves from getting too close to the person we’re with.
It’s human nature to want to protect ourselves from getting hurt, but sometimes we take it too far. We build barriers to intimacy that are so high, it becomes impossible for us to have a healthy and meaningful relationship.
Destroyer begins slowly, with just guitar, bass and snaps. About 20 seconds later the vocals join in, and the song takes on a more melodic tone. As soon as you pass through this moment, you’ll hear a relaxing beat and some synths that are reminiscent of the 80s.
