Niels Bacher tells a very 2021 love story through his latest single, Too Sick to Love

Too Sick to Love is the latest single to be released by the alt-pop artist Niels Bacher whose lyrical candour knows very few bounds; in the best possible way. The single starts with muttered lyrics atop of lo-fi trappy beats and faint piano melody; as the momentum picks up, the dissonance starts to slip away until you’re in the midst of a raw whirlwind of emotion that carries reminiscence to The King Blues and Linkin Park.

With lyrics such as “I’ve never been this close to the edge before” “I’m scared I can’t do anything right anymore”, Bacher acted as a confidant to everyone who knows the scars that come through a mental health battle. Especially for anyone who knows how it feels to be romantically ostracised by your own mind.

Too Sick to Love is now available to stream via Spotify.
