Introducing: Someone - 'Forget Forgive'
Dutch singer-songwriter Someone sheds her former self to explore new levels to her music, in new single 'Forget Forgive', which has a fragile and delicate vibe to it.
'Playing the song to other people actually always feels a bit icky’ Someone, AKA Tessa Rose Jackson, explains ‘like reading an excerpt from my diary out in public. It’s super naked, about battling some pretty nasty demons and, in overcoming them, figuring out the kind of person you want to be. I wrote and recorded it all in one night (between the hours of 11PM and 4AM). Some songs take ages to fine-tune and hone, but this one felt like I was just solidifying a strain of thought that had been flowing around inside my head for ages."
It has been four years since her last release, and Tessa was feeling the struggles of writing the 'album number two', and she noticed that the previous youthful self that she once was, is now gone, and has been replaced someone wiser. So decided to have a complete regeneration as an artist.
“I wanted a name that meant: Don’t worry about who I am. Just check out what I make. I make a lot. Some you may like, some you may not. But I’ll like it. And you know what, I’m someone too.”
This is allowing Tessa to brew up a creative storm with her new music, which sees a more abstract approach to her previous releases.
