Originally part of South-East London collective Reservoir, Theodor Black thrives within the grooves of his rumbling, smoky soundscapes. His voice rising from the murky depths, “Anxiety” is an eerie sonic cut - warped electronics spinning feverishly out of control.
Theodor Black's intimate approach to songwriting delicately articulates the all-consuming feeling of anxiety - a dead weight pushing down on your chest. Opening with choppy rap beats and distorted lyrical composition, Black's husky drawl feels like a soothing antidote against the sharp, static production. It's a cathartic middle finger to those growing feelings of unease.
“‘Anxiety’ speaks on my first time experiencing it,” says Black candidly, “that feeling when your heart starts racing and the room starts to spin I thought I was going to die. In the song I'm telling it to go away and leave me alone.”
