Rotterdam-based singer and songwriter Daimy Lotus has released her new single, “Pathetic” via Amsterdam-based independent record label New Ams. The pop-punk influenced track takes aim at fuckboys with grungy hues in hopes to become an anthem for anyone who has ever felt manipulated. The song arrives alongside a self-directed video, which can be seen now below.
“There wasn’t a specific person that came to mind while writing this song,” explains Daimy. “I just had this kinda aggressive and disgusted feeling coming up while hearing the chords that were played, so I knew I had to tap into that and the fuckboy-theme is what came out of it. The fact that I couldn’t link it to one specific person is because I’ve had many messed up experiences where guys would just walk all over me, pushing my limits to get what they want and never even consider once what I wanted.”
Writing about themes of heartbreak, mental health and self growth, Daimy Lotus’ punchy sounds and powerful hooks make for an addictive listen. An advocate of inclusion sees Daimy’s music accommodating and connecting with people who experience life in a variety of ways, ensuring that everyone feels both seen and heard. Settling easily into the ears of any pop lover, Daimy’s crashing pop tunes are a force to be reckoned with.
