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, it ends up we gain a lot more than we anticipated.
Discussing ‘Over You’, Fi explains, “the track is about the ending of a relationship, the redirection to something better. I do believe everything happens for a reason and sometimes we need something bad to happen to shake us and realise what’s really important. I made excuses, ignored the red flags and didn’t prioritise my needs and although was a shock to the system when it all ended, it also gave me a new lease of life. It taught me to put myself first and to always trust myself with choices in the future.”
