Bayleigh Cheek shares “Release Me” via Red Zeppelin Records
This song is about what it means to realize you’ve believed a lie, or false identity of yourself, and the process of becoming free from it and knowing the truth.
Growing up listening to a range of genres, from psychedelic and folk to progressive rock and new wave, “Release Me” opened my eyes to the world of synths and everything electronics can provide to create a whole new universe of sound. Taking something seemingly fun and cheerful on the outside, and revealing something deeper on the inside.
Before I started writing my upcoming debut album, I decided to be more vulnerable, honest and raw. I’ve hidden behind surrealism, which is still a big part of my art and always will be, but in light of the pandemic, I felt I needed to really let myself be open and not hide anymore. I’m becoming the person I’ve always wanted to become, and art will always be there as gentle reminders.
Thank you for your time,
We’ve all been given wounds
Just to take it on
And we’ve all been given truth
Just to carry it on
