Knowing that she needs to progress in her life while currently feeling like she is stuck like there is glue on her shoes, Siobhan Cotchin is at her honest best as she navigates this voyage that has no training manual with her new single, ‘Growing Pains‘.
Siobhan Cotchin is a 21-year-old Perth, Western Australia-based indie singer-songwriter who performs with the kid of vocal dreaminess that will spark your imagination alive.
“‘Growing Pains’ is a super personal song about the realities of growing up. It’s about wanting to avoid all responsibilities of adulthood and the anxieties I think we’ve all faced at some point about who we are and where we fit in the world. It’s kind of an ode to my anxiety and the way it makes me act by ‘ghosting my friends’ and just generally avoiding people. I hope with ‘Growing Pains’, people can find solace and comfort in the lyrics and know it’s completely okay to be scared of the future and not know who you are. It’s all part of being human!” ~ Siobhan Cotchin
Mirroring the feelings of so many of us who have felt the wrath of the world bite through the walls of our precious hope, Siobhan Cotchin is rather outstanding here with a marvellous creation that will have you thinker deeper about current predicaments that are affecting us all right now.
‘Growing Pains‘ from Perth, Western Australia-based indie singer-songwriter Siobhan Cotchin is such a superbly introspective song from a young woman who is taking time out to work out who she really is. Her vocals are pleasing on the earlobes and her lyrics are sharp and bring you deep inside her life, as she tells us exactly what is going on.
With a tremendously understandable outlook from someone who feels deeper than most – this is a reflective release of the highest standard – from a gifted artist who knows what she needs to do next after this time to build up her armour for the battles ahead.
