Today’s Featured Artists:
Abby Lane – Over you
I would consider my sound to be indie pop – depending on the sonic direction of each song. Over You is a song I wrote about my ex that I had a hard time getting over. I seemed to be in a cyclical pattern of both missing him and hating him, and wrote it as a reminder to myself that I was OK and better of not being with someone who wasn’t equally as crazy about me. It’s the kind of break up song where you throw sprinkles in the air and wave goodbye without looking back.
