FLØRE – “I’m okay, I’m just a little depressed” single
“I can’t even hate you, I’m busy hating myself. Nothing kills you like your mind. Am I fine when I’m not scared to die? I can never love you if I can’t love myself. I found a system in this mess. Don’t you worry ‘bout me, I’m okay, I’m just a little depressed. I miss myself.” – lyrics
‘I’m okay, I’m just a little depressed’ tells an emotional tale about a young woman who suffers from severe depression. Apparently, she feels she’s a loser, a bad-news-baby who is tired of the skin that she is wearing. Oftentimes, dark thoughts of death trickle into her vulnerable mind. And shortly afterward, her life that was just enjoyably happy becomes sad and depressing.
‘I’m okay, I’m just a little depressed’ contains a sentimental narrative, pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies that are sure to pull on your heartstring. Also, the unhappy tune possesses moody instrumentation flavored with a dark emo-pop aroma. Furthermore, “I’m okay, I’m just a little depressed” serves as another stellar offering from an earmarked artist who consistently draws listeners into her world with each release.
“I can never love you if I can’t love myself.”
“Being depressed comes with not knowing why you feel like that. A lot of times even when I’m with friends, I feel the darkness creeping up on me again. And sometimes you can’t hide it and I remember that one day where I was like, ‘I’m okay, I’m just a little depressed.’ Like, I know how to handle it, don’t you worry about me”. – FLØRE stated
FLØRE writes songs “to give this weird existence a meaning”. Feeling like an alien for most of her life, she spent her childhood playing guitar, singing and dreaming of the universe. She’s inspired by the darkness of growing up, the beautifully broken, and the feeling of what it must be like when life begins. Or what it must be like when it ends. Or what it is at all. FLØRE calls herself a “moonlover”, who expresses the loneliness in her songs, revealing her touching voice telling stories about her own fragileness, devotion for unusual human beings, and broken love.
“Depression is a serious disease which needs to be normalized and talked about ‘cause nothing kills you like your own mind. And I’m so proud and feel so strong writing about mental health. For me, it feels like you will never get rid of major depression. It’s about handling the demons and maybe even becoming friends with them. My music always has a hopeful feeling to it. It’s the outro for me in this song. And the voice memo of someone really special. Someone who is a survivor of his dark demons.”
“I can’t even hate you, I’m busy hating myself.”
‘I’m okay, I’m just a little depressed’ is the title track of FLØRE’s debut EP, entitled, “Superbloom”. The seven-track project features FLØRE’s previously released single with NOVAA, entitled, “Rich Kids”.
