Song of the Day: 9 Deep Breaths – Fabian Secon

FABIAN SECON‘s self-written single, ‘9 Deep Breaths’ is probably his most honest work to date. The track encapsulates his lo-fi, genre-spanning sound with Fabian revealing his battle with anxiety on a daily basis:

“Anxiety’s the villain to my brain / Looks to kill me anytime of day / My guilty thoughts rain on my parade / And 9 deep breaths to get me through the day”, he sings. But there’s also a sense of determination and hopefulness in the lyrics too: “But I’m strong as an ox or tiger teeth / No I won’t let this defeat me / Screaming out, how hard can it be? / Facing myself the enemy”.

Fabian has built up an impressive fanbase organically over the last couple of years, with over 30 million streams globally across all platforms – a huge feat as an independent DIY artist. On Spotify alone, he currently has close to 250,000 monthly listeners and several tracks that have crossed the one million barrier.

So if you’re currently suffering from depression or anxiety, remember you’re not alone as this guy has been through it all, despite his impressive record in the industry. Check out the Lyric video for ‘9 Deep Breaths’ below…
