South East London singer Laolu is back after stepping away from music for three years with her new single All In Me. A candid song which discusses the artists reasons for stepping away from music. Which was unfortunately due to depression. “it is based on a conversation I would have with depression if it were a person. Realising that I cannot give power to it and expect myself to move forward, it’s a conversation I have with myself also to try and let go, and be free of all the darkness. Writing this song was one of the hardest things I have had to do, but it was also really cathartic for me.
Depression is something that will never be easy to talk about, but hopefully with artists creating honest songs like All In Me the conversation can because easier.
