Mothica drops a heavy pop tune “Hungover”. The production on this track is huge. The massive hits on the hook are what really sealed the deal for me. The future bass elements are tastefully executed in this cinematic atmosphere. The song also has suspenseful elements leading up to hooks, it feels like a feature-presentation. Which brings us the video below.
“Hungover” is a testament to Mothica’s strength and an emotional revelation about her past. “Say goodbye to the comedown, wasted nights you only leave me hungover, hungover you.” The single comes equipped with the brilliant visual above where you watch Mothica both run from and embrace her demons.
“When I started writing songs for this album, I knew I wanted to write about my drinking problem in a way that wouldn’t alienate people who don’t have problems with addiction. I personified alcohol, because that’s what it was to me. It was my best friend, lover, confidant, hype man, all wrapped in a seductive bottle marked poison. There were countless hangovers I spent crying in the bathroom, claiming I’d never do it again, and so it felt fitting to start the project out with Hungover, rather than end with it.”
“I started writing songs when I was in the thick of my depression, self medicating with drugs and alcohol while desperately seeking a way out. I worked on myself, I started exercising, I found group therapy, and I wrote songs constantly. Something radically shifted in me, and I was given the gift of perspective. I got sober during the writing of this album. Being able to share my honest, raw emotions in the recording studio truly saved my life. I’ve never felt so connected to my purpose as I have with all the music I’m releasing next. This is my blue hour.””
