Folk singer Lisa Canny shares the stripped-back new single "Medicine". A lush, soothing instrumentation that flows through your veins with such delicacy, the track is a calming nod to staying true to ourselves despite having people use your own energy for their own benefit.
Hailing from Ireland, Canny's tender vocals hook you in with their almost eery quality. A heartbreaking single built with traditional folk sounds, “Medicine" draws on the feelings of using your strength to heal others by moving your own needs to the sidelines. Weaving a tapestry of acoustic and organic sounds, the track lulls listeners into a cushioned, gentle experience of whispering harmonies and beautiful melodies.
"‘Medicine’ is about when somebody comes into your life and uses your healing energy to heal themselves, in turn leaving you depleted and without enough for yourself," she explains of the track's origins. "Because of the caring nature of women, we often get used by men in this way, particularly vulnerable men. But it can happen to all openhearted people. It's sad, but should remind the openhearted to stay true to themselves – as they deserve, and will find, better."
Lisa Canny's enchanting sounds are effortlessly ethereal. Capturing such a heightened emotion in such a short amount of time renders Canny an impeccable songwriter and most enthralling artist. Like its name, "Medicine" offers a medicinal quality, the opportunity to recuperate your own strength, ready to move on in life feeling empowered and more guarded.
