Didirri är en artist från Melbourne i Australien. Han är här aktuell med singeln Raw stuff, en stillsam och fin pianoballad om två människor som inte klarar av att öppna upp för varandra, trots är de är varandra väldigt nära. För dig som gillar artister som Elton John eller Rufus Wainwright, så kan detta definitivt vara värt att kolla in.
Didirri berättar om singeln för bloggen.
“For the first time in my life, I was skipping Christmas.
I was feeling very, very guilty about it. My passion for creative work had taken over too much of my life, so there I was, on the other side of the planet.
Though I was pursuing my creative goals, I was far from my family and friends. It was difficult to open up to someone I cared about back home. I couldn’t explain the mixed bag of emotions that was weighing me down so I gave up on the song quickly. It didn’t feel finished.
Two years later I’m in the studio… the phone rings and it’s the person I had felt cut off from that year I skipped Christmas. They said they had felt the same, and had found it hard to open up as well. And that they were skipping Christmas this year.
I instantly remembered the half-written song I never finished, and suddenly it all made sense. Part two.
Raw stuff instantly falls into two parts. The first half is my side of miscommunication, and the second my reaction to hearing they felt the same.”
