Today’s track of the day is ‘High Diving’, a sultry dream-rock ballad just dropped by Brooklyn NYC’s Abby Ahmad. One for a blanket in the park.

Abby say the song began as a commentary on the emphasis placed on failure and accomplishment:

“For many years, I’ve struggled with perceiving achievement and outward recognition as a symbol of success. When you are seeking external validation as a means of professional worth, it starts to bleed into your concept of personal identity, as well. I am now actively making strides to prioritize creativity, connection, craft, and community. It makes me healthier and happier as a human and my work more authentic, risky, and ultimately viable.”
