From ‘Holy Moly & the Crackers’
“Wow, its been a long time now since we’ve been touring. What a strange world we find ourselves in.”
“So, BIG NEWS! Ruth, our lead singer, has launched herself as a solo artist with her new single, ‘Sink Or Swim’ out now! Don’t worry she hasn’t flown the nest, but taken this time out to work on her own music. And it’s a beauty. Please listen, watch, love and share”
Ruth states that she lives with mental instability and her battle to keep her head above water.
“I’ve written about a panic attack I had last year and I really felt like I was drowning … the loss of control, disappearing reality, not knowing when it will end. Mental health problems are very prominent in my family and, growing up, it’s something that we were always able to talk about. I am very fortunate to see my mental health as ‘normal’. We are all a little bit nuts and I think it’s part of being human. Being super sensitive, I feel everything around me in a really intense way: emotions, feelings, weather, sounds. Experiencing life in high definition can be wonderful but also destructive. At times, it can feel like an electrical storm in my head.”
“I guess this song is me sharing my own experiences and hopefully it will connect with other people that maybe feel the same way. It seems that with everything that’s going on, the whole world is living in a state of anxiety. We’ve all lost a sense of control as our reality is so rapidly changing. Now, more than ever, we need to have these conversations.”
