FM Premiere: IRJA’s HEAVY STATE OF MIND

"'Heavy State of Mind' is about the inner paradox you might feel every now and then when you feel insecure. The song is romanticizing that feeling in a warm way and is about committing to it. The aim was to encourage embracing those moments and not hiding them. Taking a minute for yourself and uncovering the good things again can lead to a beautiful and bright euphoria. It was really important to us to musically show this towards the end of the song when the song slowly falls apart."

IRJA premiere with FM their single Heavy State of Mind, out on 14th May. A smoothly reflective pop gem, that explores the tribulations of a broken relationship and the impact it can have upon us.

The duo explains: “‘Heavy State of Mind’ is about the inner paradox you might feel every now and then when you feel insecure.
