su i think – leave

South East London royalty su i think drops their most poignant track yet with ‘leave’.

Soaking in a pool of melancholy, su i think‘s ‘leave’ is probably one of the saddest songs you’ll hear this year. A façade of soft electro-pop and glistening synth blankets Su’s buried feelings of aching and regret as they mourn the loss of young 20s love – the kind of passionate, twisted love that bears grieving months after the damage is done.

In an age where communication couldn’t be any easier, often face to face confrontation is the hardest thing to do. Realising what you want, and more importantly, what you deserve, is everything that young love encapsulates. Experimenting with each other’s souls and seeking compatibility. At the same time that miracles happen and true love is found, there’s also the other end of the spectrum where breaking up leaves you in one big distorted void.

“‘Leave’ is a track written about being in a relationship that you know isn’t working. After trying to communicate; you still can’t make it work. It’s knowing you love this person truly whilst also knowing they are having a negative effect on your life. It’s about accepting the fact that they cannot offer what your soul needs.”

“Basically an ex was unable to hold me the way I kept telling them to. We all know how that turns out. You start looking inwards and seeing all the ugly that you were ignoring at the beginning. You start seeing how they really are; You then feel them pull away into the arms of someone else and all you can do is hold on to the idea of them. It’s best to just leave,” – su i think

‘leave’ accurately represents the notion of calling it off as ultimately, it’s the right thing to do, albeit is what the heart is trying so desperately to avoid. A completely devastating turn of events which is perfectly captured in aural form; Su nails it yet again.
