Lucifena, aka Stephanie Sanson (ex-You Only Live Once), has premiered a new video for her new song “Depression.” This track features Myke Terry (Volumes) and Lucifena’s frequent collaborator Morgoth Beatz, aka Michael Montoya (Winds Of Plague).
“This type of song is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while. It’s not a trap-metal beat — it’s real instruments and it brings me back to my roots.
This song is about when you can’t help but feel like you’re descending and trying to defeat the low. The world is in a state where it’s economically collapsing and it’s also mentally affecting everyone. Depression is something everyone goes through and it can destroy you, if you let it. This song is a reflection of that external and internal struggle.”
“I wanted us to make a song that had the vibe of a full band instead of doing a hip-hop metal-kinda blend. I wrote the instrumental for this song awhile ago and even recorded Myke‘s guest vocal first. I showed Lucifena the song and she loved it. Just because you’re a solo artist does mean you can’t make music that sounds like a band. My guess is a lot more solo artists from the alternative hip-hop world are going to be doing this more and more.”
