The vocals, delivered with an effortlessly cool demeanor, provide an earworm central hook that's impossible to ignore.
The song delves into the profound pain of grappling with mental health issues and the toll it can take on one's relationships. The lyrics depict the feeling of letting down a partner in a relationship due to the overwhelming struggle with mental health. It's a topic that often remains unexplored in music, making Depression, Baby's decision to address it all the more commendable.
The band members explain, "Seeing yourself lose the battle with mental health and it affecting people you love is a pain like no other. You’re already suffering, and now you feel like you’re dragging them down with you." This candid exploration of such a challenging theme adds depth and authenticity to their music.
Depression, Baby's approach to songwriting is unique; they balance their heavy lyrical themes with high-energy instrumentals. This juxtaposition, akin to the two-house meme (one pink for the vibe of the song and one black for the subject matter), provides listeners with a sense of solidarity in dealing with these themes without exacerbating those feelings. It's a refreshing approach, offering solace while acknowledging the gravity of the subject matter.
