Leave it to Canadian twin siblings Mercedes (she/her) and Phoenix (they/them) Arn-Horn –– aka Softcult –– to put a dark spin on falling in love. Today they share new single ‘Love Song’ which captures both the hopefulness of new love and the anxiety that often comes with it.
“This is an anxious love song,” Mercedes explains. “It’s about loving someone so intensely that you find yourself in constant fear of losing them. Sometimes love and happiness can feel like these unattainable things that are too good to be true. Once we’ve finally found something our hearts have been yearning for, it’s hard to shake the thought that we will inevitably have to let it go. But these gnawing thoughts can get in the way of us allowing ourselves to be vulnerable, or enjoying our relationships for fear that they won’t last.”
