Anonymous Canadian electronic duo P'aris are back with a brand new track featuring vocals from WILLA. The track is based on the coping mechanisms we use together when dealing with loss and grief. In the bands' own words:
"It’s a song about two people experiencing the loss of a pregnancy. There’s a very particular type of gentle empathy that both partners must offer each other when going through a miscarriage. It’s a strange type of loss, especially from a pragmatic standpoint – you haven’t so much lost something as you have lost the idea of something.
So in a way you’re mourning the loss of control over your own future, control over your body, your biology. And you’re also faced with the fact that you have failed at the one thing humans exist on earth to do. ‘Focus’ is about making sure the relationship doesn’t suffer while you’re each processing things in your own way…"
The track itself has the brittle sense of emotional fragility that you can only imagine if you haven't been through such an experience, but it combines it with a sense of positive determination to work together to keep on loving. Together with WILLA, P'aris have managed to create a song as catchy as it is emotionally charged. Love this.
