Portland bedroom pop artist Maria DeHart is releasing a new four-song EP, Quarantunes, Friday (1/22) via Strawberry Moon Records. She recently released opening track "In My Head," and we're now premiering a second track from it, the bewitchingly dreamy "Obsessions."
"'Obsessions' is a song about struggling to gain some semblance of control in impossible circumstances," Maria says. "Through the lyrics I explore my experiences with mental illness, specifically obsessive compulsive disorder; addiction; and releasing control in pursuit of serenity. This track tells a story of suffering, but also of the beginning of a journey towards balance, healthy boundary-setting in interpersonal relationships and, ultimately, emotional stability."
