Rise Above Your “Demons” with Qerenne in Live Session with Chilling Acoustics
In her first release since her previously-released EP, Midnight Harmony, Tel-Aviv-based songstress, composer, and producer Qerenne returns with a chilling acoustic live session of her song “Demons.” Qerenne once again puts her vocal chops on display, now backed by two other vocalists (Michal Guberman and Chen B. Holzman), while delivering an uplifting message inspired by a moment in her career that she experienced and is now reflecting on. She explains,
“Demons” was written back at a time when i was writing a new song every couple of days. I was composing non-stop, recording new songs like crazy. Ironically that’s when my inner demons really started to chant with self doubts, judgments, insecurities and fears, and this song is about trying to rise above them. trying to “break the spell that has been cast”. I think anyone could identify with the feeling of having this dark, cold cave deep within you, where your self sabotaging demons lie, sit around their green fireplace and cast their spells on you.
The enchanting soundscape brings listeners into a world filled with rich and honey-soaked harmonies that float above the methodic finger snaps and delicate guitar plucks. As we heard in Midnight Harmony, Qerenne loves to combine her appreciation for the 60s and 70s with her modern light and point of view. We hear this again in “Demons.” From the acoustic production to the gentle and sweet musings of the vocals, there is a pleasant and smooth soulfulness that is inescapable within the track. Even though Qerenne sings to her younger self, the one that she references as inspiration for this song, the message is underpinned by a theme that a larger audience can easily relate to – fighting your inner demons, sometimes silently, to continue to grow.
