Femi Tahiru Is Fighting Separation Anxiety On Soulful New Outing "The Weekend"


July 16, 2020

Manchester's music scene continues to reach new heights and Femi Tahiru's new single, "The Weekend", is a welcome addition.

On this new track, Femi displays the soulful sound that's been emanating from his hometown over the past few years. Producers Luke Mac and Baga created the mesmerising instrumental and their flawless use of chords creates a sweet, lilting melody for Femi to glide over.

Delving deep into his fears, he speaks on the anxiety that he feels when he's away from his partner. The visuals reflect the calming vibe of the track, with shots of Femi isolated amongst nature as he washes away his worries, giving the viewer plenty of space to take in the soothing ambiance.

Speaking about the track, Femi said: "It takes you through the journey of being at a gathering or a social event with your partner and feeling quite alone and distant from everything and everyone once your partner leaves — leaving you in a world of confusion and anxiousness. Of course, you may find yourself intoxicated in these situations — and that's what I am, which makes the whole scenario bigger than it already is — like I'm having a bad trip, and she's not there to calm me down."
