For a generation of overthinkers, romance feels like a colossal risk. Every time you plunge into love’s uncharted waters you risk a broken heart. Even worse, you risk losing yourself. Some relationships can strip us of our autonomy, leaving us dazed, wondering if we really deserve true love; or what that even looks like. Luckily, we have someone like STORRY to show us. The contemporary Canadian artist’s latest single, Intimate Abuse was inspired by her own survival from an abusive relationship.
No stranger to a wounded heart or broken self-esteem, STORRY’s track details how past trauma can still influence current romantic pursuits. It can be frustrating to be capable of so much healing, and yet still find yourself being amazed that someone else can and will love you despite your past. Rich warm vocals guide you through, while explosions of strength punch you in the face. Why in the hell do you love me? she wails. To be seen and loved despite yourself can truly transform your entire life. A healthy relationship can put the madness into perspective and the insecurities to rest. With a magnitude of power only a survivor can muster, STORRY shatters her walls with Intimate Abuse, and we are forever grateful.
