If You Go
From Fighter EP
Eighteen years young and with five long years of performance experience behind her already, India Newland was made for the stage. Since playing at the world famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival, India Newland has worked on producing a fantastic EP. With a message that illuminates the issues around mental health trouble, the record is an exploration of the psyche and the human spirit in musical form.
Synthesiser and blues guitar open the track on a smooth and relaxing beat. Tampered down drums and distortion warm up the composition, allowing India Newland to place her voice neatly over the top. A jazzy element in her melody brings out an emotional depth while pitch perfect placement of her notes ring true with subtle harmony. The song wants to remind us that we all feel down and sometimes we feel hopeless, yet we rely on each other to keep each other above water. A deep sense of attachment reveals that self-worth is often largely based on the presence of others in our lives.
