Abby London Anxiety
Singer/Songwriter HyperLink

 















Do consumer choices, toxic food, relentless advertising and poor communication contribute to anxiety? If we decided to acquire food, products and other items ethically, would anyone notice or care? Can we hold ourselves accountable? Those are the questions Abby London explores in her upcoming single release “Anxiety.”

The song opens with the line “Maybe I have anxiety because I ruin other people and the planet.” It’s a forlorn ruminative question Abby London contemplates as she considers the affects her purchases have on the people who manufacture the products she buys, as well as the destructive path those items may take to get to her. Does the tension and stress of the creation and the journey transfer to her body and mind? Is that why pills seem needed to control dismay and dejection?

This song is a poignant look at how our own choices contribute to our anxiety and depression what we choose to buy, what we choose to eat and how we choose to communicate. It’s honest about being lazy, inhumane, intermittently motivated and of having a lack of self-discipline. Some may think the song is about relying on rules and regulations when, in reality, it’s about changing oneself.

Experience these introspective ponderings set to catchy electric sounds, soothing vocals and unexpected moments.

Writing this song, for me, has been a journey in taking personal responsibility for my consumer choices.
Maybe I have anxiety because I ruin other people and the planet
Maybe it’s why I’m so upset why I always feel outside of my element
Maybe I feel the butterfly effect of the people I affect by what I own
I know that it’s wrong but I keep buying
The products the chain is supplying
I reach for the pills because my heart has had too much
I know that it’s wrong but I keep buying
The products the chain is supplying
I reach for the pills because my head has had too much
Maybe I got depression because everything I eat is toxic
Maybe I feel the pressure of the war that’s so far from where I call home
Maybe I have depression because I buy everything that I am sold
I wanna get up and quit watching TV I can’t press off on the remote
I know that it’s wrong but I keep buying
The products the chain is supplying
I reach for the pills because my heart has had too much
I know that it’s wrong but I keep buying
The products the chain is supplying
I reach for the pills because my head has had too much
I think it’s not that important
I act like it doesn’t even matter
There’s so much I don’t wanna feel responsible for
I have the choice to ignore it
I don’t have to explore it
Ultimately it is out of my control
Why should I even try I cannot change the world
Maybe I have anxiety because I’m horrible at communication
Maybe I should of said something instead of letting it all blow up
Maybe I have a right to be just as upset as I really am
Advertisers are so tricky they started targeting me before I was born
They poison me with their diapers and powder and oil
I know that it’s wrong but I keep buying
The products the chain is supplying
I reach for the pills because my heart has had too much
I know that it’s wrong but I can’t help it
However goods get to me I will put up with it
I reach for the pills because my head has had too much
Maybe I got anxiety because everything I love is plastic
If there’s ever a fire everything I love would melt away

Abby drops a quirky unique and interesting tunage ,this one has some terrific fx nicely placed that capture your ears , tasty and fun. Big soundscape rich with tones and craziness that will grab your attention and perhaps lift your spirits and make even laugh, Abby tackles a lot in this release, and keeps it interesting throughout the song. And Abby has a wonderful voice too. A song with lots of sparkle and shiny parts that is both a lesson in life she shares her own experiences of consumerism and perhaps buyers remorse. Something to think about folks. Take a lesson now and listen up, it has good insight throughout..review by bryon tosoff 5 time station manager of the year 2015-2019


RISING STAR- Voodoohead Productions
I think perhaps a rising start at indiemusicpeople is likely. This lady can sing, has the chops for sure. really fun song with lots of fx here and there, nice arrangement and well produced too. Very insightful and circumspect about Anxiety situation and how we can get caught up in consumerism and how our choices can affect our lives and others . great subject matter ,we could see more like this that has meaning and purpose and how we cope with situations like Anxiety regret ,
