Since stumbling on her song “History” (and the subsequent version featuring Lostboycrow), we’ve kept a tab on alt-pop singer Beren Olivia. The newcomer’s newest offering is a darker song named “Hurt Again”. This is the follow-up to her “Is That What You Like Now” cut and the second single taken from her upcoming debut EP produced by Dylan Bauld.
“Hurt Again” reflects on the contradictory nature of personal growth. Olivia explains, “In the past I’d dive head first into relationships I knew weren’t good for me. But to be honest, those were also the ones that started out the most fun. My mum could always somehow predict the outcome of the relationship, whether I wanted to believe it or not at the time. ‘Hurt Again’ was written from the perspective of starting a new relationship knowing that it will go wrong, but being naive enough to hope that they will prove otherwise.”
