During these crazy times I have been listening to a lot of music. Music helps me to stay focused, inspires me to create, and always elevates my environment. Especially during quarantine when I find myself sitting in the same space every day.
London-based singer/songwriter/producer Fifi Rong’s new single Distance, a ballad about love and loss, is a beautiful escape into a world we can all relate to. With its stripped-down, acoustic production and Fifi’s ethereal vocals, it touches on themes of distance and isolation. This takes on a particularly poignant tone during this period, while many people are apart from their loved ones.
Distance is a song that offers comfort during this time. It’s a reminder that we’re all in this together. Even though we are living through an incredibly challenging time, there’s always love and there’s always hope. Eventually, this will be behind us.
None of us really know how life will be after this pandemic. One thing that’s clear is that “normal” will be different. Perhaps that’s a good thing.
In the meantime, I’m grateful for the plethora of quality music and art coming out to keep the world hopeful and inspired. Distance has been a wonderful addition to my playlist.
