Our Track of the Day today comes from Jenn Vix.
The mercurial singer/songwriter’s new single “PTSD” is a stirring meditation on the effects of trauma and how it alters one’s life.
Recorded with Grammy-nominated mastering engineer Chris Gehringer (Dua Lipa, Lady Gaga), “PTSD” is a haunting slice of trap pop and although it mines rather dark terrain, it also offers tremendous comfort to those living with trauma. It’s a moving and soulful reminder that you are not alone.
Always unflinchingly honest, The Rhode Island-based Vix says of the song: “This new track was primarily written about my experience of being diagnosed with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and what it is like to live with it. I’ve survived SA, homelessness, DV, attempted homicide, and two near fatal illnesses. Though I’ve written about what I’ve gone through, this song is for everyone who has experienced or is experiencing trauma. I deeply empathize with anyone dealing with it.”
