Songwriter, satirist, and self-proclaimed "love explorer,” Evie Joy encourages listeners to rise above toxic patterns and co-dependency on new single “Heroin(e),” which serves as a precursor to her new album, Love Letters.
A deep dive into the systemic issues that cause cycles of unhealthy dynamics, the empowering anthem ruminates on how love doesn’t mean losing your individualism and identity, but growing as individuals together.
She explains, “If we’re loyal, sacrificial, within the bounds of “comfort”, and loving someone without any conditions for how they treat themselves or us, we can end up merging in a way where neither of us is helping the other grow, and that isn’t love. Love isn’t “merging” in a way that you are no longer whole on your own but the ability to grow closer together, even as you grow.”
Inviting us to discover ourselves and become our own “heroine,” Joy leads us away from the co-dependent path that she and many women fall into, rooted in her signature approach of unfolding deeply personal stories behind catchy melodies and engaging lyricism.
Taking us along on a healing and recovery journey, Joy’s artistry is one that’s brimming with love and mystery as she weaves through an intricate labyrinth of relatable questions and emotions.
With this latest track being the first step to a jam-packed November ahead, Joy will be sprinkling love notes all over New York City, turning it into a real-life treasure hunt just in time for Halloween.
She has also teased the arrival of a new track and video, which promises to be an introspective exploration of intimacy and self, ahead of her album release, she will drop next single “When the Love is Dead," and a music video featuring a chair-dance that flips between the masculine and feminine energies we balance within ourselves and is a call to assess the hats we wear in society and the roles we take on without question.
