Song Information: This song is diverse from the other songs because of its theme. Anxiety and depression is a very crucial health problem that requires urgent help and should never be neglected. However we still consider mental health as something trivial and are not aware about the seriousness it poses. But this powerful duo has brilliantly brought out these facts and the impacts and effects of isolation and disquietude through this track. The song has a flavour of self-deprecating humour and the experience and the feeling of anxiety. The beat of this track is intensely snappy and feet tapping. The use of just the guitars with the dulcet and mellow vocals imparts that unplugged sensation to this track. Julia and Selena are beyond praise. Selena as usual keeps us hooked onto this song with her mellifluous voice. Julia’s performance is stellar and spell binding. The plucky rhythm, the thought provoking lyrics and the mesmerising crooning compel us to listen to this song on loop.

More about the song: Anxiety is a song that will set a new trend. Unlike other pop stars who sing about parties and unlimited booze and crazy chicks, Anxiety deals with serious issues like a fragile and vulnerable state of mind. This song is a bit autobiographical because Selena herself was undergoing depression and was seeking for help from it. Therefore her struggles and the experiences she was facing have been penned down in this melody. The song is also emblematic of women empowerment as two women here talk about significant topics and do not just fight over a man for his time or attention. The melody is quite soulful and every person who is in trauma or some agony can relate to this song. The message that Anxiety tries to convey to us is that it is okay to face psychological issues and we should not keep it hidden. We should speak up and ask for immediate help and also help those in distress. Overall, this song is poppy and quite addictive and will make you hum the chorus all through the day. The number is sure to keep us glued to it in the future as well and will always remind us of one thing- that everything is and will be alright.
