Love as beautiful at it is, has a dark side it when done wrong. As the music icon Pat Benatar once said “Love Is Battlefield” and it becomes a blood bath when you’re with the wrong person. A sunny day interrupted by dark clouds, loving the wrong one causes tragedies beyond compare. Endless tears, sleepless nights, self doubt and a distorted world view show up at your door unwanted all because you fell for someone who wasn’t worth it. What’s heartbreaking is that there’s no exact cure for it. As a result, there are those who reach the end of the tunnel a new being while others are still under repair or under construction. Tsk tsk.
Shedding light on this gloomy aspect of love, fast rising artist Emma Viivaca comes to us with a gut wrenching song entitled ‘Free Therapy’. Released last September 21st in all major streaming platforms via DistroKid. Emma Viivaca’s ‘Free Therapy’ is an electro pop tune that tries to smile amidst the shards of a dysfunctional relationship. Razor sharp in more ways than one, it’s a declaration of freedom and a middle finger to the oppressor. “That’s it. I’ve had it with being gas lit and getting yelled at even on Christmas and yeah. I’ve had it with being guilt – tripped til I take your shit…” as the track divulges.
Beyond the strength it displays, it can also be seen as cry for help. Wounded warrior, Emma Viivaca with her sultry and heart wrenching vocals call out into the wild for reinforcements. Strong yet vulnerable, she openly admits that she can’t accomplish it on her own. It takes a village to conquer this mess and needs it now – before it’s too late. This sense of urgency is felt through it’s pumping beats and fast paced instrumentals. It’s a race through time to stop the bleeding and breaking even further because “I’m not your baby. Done giving free therapy. Got daddy issues, got an issue with you too.”. So demons beware, no scratch that lovers with ill wills beware. You’ve found yourself a formidable match in Emma Viivaca.
Happy October folks!
