Fusing old school with the new, Irish alt-pop singer-songwriter Rebekah Fitch takes an iconic songwriting aesthetics and sharpens them up with modern production concepts with an inimitable finesse. While the execution of the song on its own stands out as something fresh, and undoubtedly she has one hell of a voice, what truly makes this track shine is the emotively moving motivations behind it.
“Need to Feel is a song written from a place of isolation with a desperation for more. 16-25s are now the loneliest group in the country. Why have we reached a stage where we struggle to let even the closest to us know what is really going on in our heads?”
Listening intently you can hear the passion that propels her message with each word, putting this complex situation in the mouths of people that need to talk about it.
