Swedish-American indie-pop duo Flora Cash (made up of singer-songwriters Shpresa Lleshaj and Cole Randall) did serve up another melancholic ballad in the form of “Don’t You Look At Me That Way”. The soft, acoustic-driven piece was written from the perspective of someone experiencing a psycho-spiritual crisis. Filled with nostalgia and reflection, the song describes the individual insecurities and the need to be seen by her partner as she is, not as he wants her to be.
“’Don’t Look At Me That Way’ is written from the point of view of someone experiencing a psycho-spiritual crisis; a dark night of the soul. The only comfort she finds is in the memories she shares with the person sitting across from her; the person she loves most of all in the world. And she’s asking this person to really look at her; not a projection of what that person wants her to be, but the real Her. She doesn’t want to be saved, only seen.”Flora Cash
The track is out on Flower Money Records.
