CloudKid Presents Diana Goldberg - FOCUS...
Diana Goldberg’s latest, ‘FOCUS…’ proves once again the artist’s knack for a diverse pop sound, while using catchy hooks and lyricism specifically focused on the topic of mental health. Her previous track, ‘SAME OLD SORRY‘ was the starting point of her debut EP phase — the demise of a relationship as a result of infidelity — moving toward a downward spiral whilst navigating such an emotional rollercoaster. ‘FOCUS…’ however is characterized as a new movement, representing an upward ricochet, carrying an empowering message — with one’s own self at the forefront — and accompanied by a grander synth melody on production, representing Goldberg’s inner voice and monologue about this whirlwind feeling in time.
She says, “‘FOCUS…’ is a direct counterpart to my last single. And I wrote this one because I needed to hear a song like this, so I went and did it, and not just for myself. It basically represents the relationship with oneself growing stronger after a difficult relationship with another, and letting that inner voice shine because there wasn’t room for you to do that before, which I hint at on [‘SAME OLD SORRY‘]. ‘FOCUS…’ radiates healing energy and showed me that I can blossom on my own, which is also reflected in the grandiose nature of its production: that build up in the synth melody acting as a sonic return to oneself. The song also highlights that you are your own (and first) priority, pushing you to drop the weight off from the burden you had atop yourself before. I also just think it’s a really vibey song — perfect to have playing on a car ride, windows down, hair flowing, feeling free to bloom again.”
