Bessie Turner – “Down 2” single
“‘Down 2’ is a kind of angry love song. It’s about wanting someone to give a sh*t but also wanting the opposite of that. The conflict of greedy emotions; you’re totally down and miserable when they’re around, but you also want them there because you realize that the problem might be a bit more deep-rooted. And maybe, you’re just totally f**king miserable when you’re on your own. It’s about internal feelings more than anything, the juxtaposition of knowing your worth but also not having enough self-respect to even make your bed when you get out of it. It’s about the fear of being on your own. It’s about using people for own gain. Also, it’s about distractions. It’s about that whole bodily feeling you get when you think you’ve done something wrong, and you feel like you’re about to be sick.” – Bessie Turner
Not too long ago, Bessie Turner was rushed to the hospital with sepsis and nearly died.
Her “Down 2” single, delivered straight from the heart, serves as her return to health and music.
The heart-breaking tune, filled with ear-welcoming vocals, is a refreshing ode to the messy realities of unrequited love.
