According to the press release, The new single from the 24-year-old musician explores themes of loss and recovery, with deryk’s stirring vocals journeying us through this unsettling and trying landscape.
She explains: “Loss & betrayal can stop time, I swear. The moment you find out it’s like your whole body deflates and while you’re trying to come to terms with it, the rest of your world carries on, judging you for not recovering in 2 minutes. It can be very isolating, and, in that headspace, I wrote One Star.”
