22-year-old Melbourne-based singer-songwriter will hyde releases his latest single and video ‘addicted‘ anticipating upcoming EP
The new single “addicted.” sees will yearn after a lost love, while continuing to paint a vivid picture of his own struggles throughout, singing “it rips me to pieces to know that I’m peaceless. I’m scared of the feeling of healing, I’m sleepless.”
will hyde shares “it shows how that same affection & deep love for someone can turn the other way and start to cause you real pain. I started writing & the words came to me as I went”.
His chapter 5 of the visual album sees will explore the outside world once more, just as his hometown of Melbourne/Naarm opens up to life again following lockdown, succinctly following on from the isolation portrayed throughout the previous video ‘fukced up.’
will says, “to me the song is about being in a stage where you would rather feel pain than love. It’s too hard to let that person go so I start to hold onto everything about them that I did have. All the little memories. That only drives me more crazy. I think it shows how the brain can use the same thing that made you love, cause pain. Pain & happiness live on the same coin and through my self exploration I have learned that I want to sit somewhere in between. A feeling of contentment, not feeling the need to hold onto relationships for a sense of self or purpose. It’s a realization that I have to start living a life where I am at the centre, not at the whim of what other people expect and give me.”
