Dublin-based electro-pop artist Fí has released her new single today, “Over You”, produced by Matt Weir (Ryan Mack, Robert Grace), tackling the difficulty of letting go while getting out of a toxic relationship and knowing that when we lose in our lives, we end up gaining a lot more than we anticipated.
Discussing “Over You”, Fi explains, ““The track is about the ending of a relationship and the redirection to something better. It about being with somebody who I thought I actually never really knew and the realisation that what we think we want isn’t always what we need. That intense and exhilarating start of something new can be a red flag for something more toxic, as the idealisation phase wears off it was about seeing a whole other side to somebody. It was only a few months but I’m in such a different place in my life since it ended; it’s taught me to trust myself more and realise that relationships ending are teaching us more about ourselves, what we need to heal to find ourselves and reclaim our own power again.”
