Seattle, June 11, 2021 -- 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.
“Anxiety” will be available on major platforms and abbylondonmusic.com June 11th. The music video will be available June 22th. In the music video, London wears a dress made with trash, goes grocery shopping, sings next to a big hole in the ground, binge watches ‘The Office’ next to a mountain of pills and hangs out in a hot tub in a trash bikini.
