Nashville-based songwriter Madi Diaz shares the new single “Nervous”, written about unhealthy coping mechanisms. With lush guitar rhythms, the single is an excited piece of guitar-pop that holds a microscope over human behaviour. “I’m not really looking to get healthy”, Diaz sings. A haunting lyric that looks at our obsessiveness wanting to be perceived as getting help, but continuing the circle of unhealthy choices.
“You know when you hold a mirror up to a mirror and you get an infinite amount of reflections from every angle? That’s what ‘Nervous’ is about,” says Diaz. “It’s when you’re in a loop of looking at yourself from every vantage point until you’re caught up in your own tangled web of bullshit. It’s about catching yourself acting out your crazy and you’re finally self-aware enough to see it, but you’re still out of your body enough and curious enough to watch yourself do it.”
