Out now from Winnipeg’s bedroom popstar Lhasa Petik: ‘Here and Gone’.
“When I was writing Here and Gone, there was a point where all of my insecurities and fears were coming true. As someone who always needs change and excitement, routine is one of my biggest fears, but being stuck at home has forced me to sit with my thoughts. I’ve had to take a step back and appreciate life and relationships for what they are without all the crazy parties and travelling.
Instead of avoiding the lows or turning to vices to cope I’ve been forced to appreciate them for what they are. “Are you really living if you never think of dying” is one of the most vulnerable lyrics I’ve written, because I’ve gone through some dark times that I often try to forget, and rarely like to acknowledge. However, I’ve started to realize that you can’t appreciate the highs without the lows, the same way that we value life because it doesn’t last forever.”
