Norwich indie / emo quintet Marigolds are pleased to reveal their new single ‘Nerves’. The latter is indeed out now via Beth Shalom Records, their second for the label.
As songwriter Joe Maguire explains:
“The new single ‘Nerves is all about the pangs of being homesick and missing interactions you used to have—how simple everything used to be.” However, in the same breath, ‘Nerves’ deals with the realisation that situations can change over time, and as people, so do we.
“It was written from an existential place of worry,” continues Maguire. “I just felt extremely irrelevant and everything that used to define my identity had worn away. I wanted to tackle longing to be remembered and perceived in a certain way, and the realisation that that is such an unhealthy way to live.”
If there’s a key takeaway from ‘Nerves’ then, it’s that we should always try to live our lives with an internal focus on self-evaluation. “From personal experience, if your internal dialogue is shaped around other people having to think of you in a particular light, this can be a pathway to low self-esteem.”
