Veridia has recently released a brand new visual for their latest Pulse single, “Still Breathing.” Veridia’s front woman, Deena Jakoub, also explained the song in more detail in an interview with MERGE. You can read the explanation and watch the new music video below:
“I don’t write because I have all the answers or because I want everyone to think I’m in this really good place. In fact, I am struggling, I am still healing, I am human. ‘Still Breathing’ was written to say, I feel you, we’re all struggling through something, and though there are some things we may solely have to endure on our own, we don’t have to process it alone.
This song was birthed out of fear and grew into an anthem of strength and conquering for me. I have a chronic illness that takes fear to the next level, and when I am over-stressed, anxiety and panic chase me down no matter how fast I run. What I’ve recently learned and keeps me going, is to actually slow down and find something to be grateful for in that day, in that moment. When I wrote this song, my gratitude was literally focused on being alive, having been given a chance to breathe another breath into the day. Sometimes all you need is a shift in perspective.
Vulnerability can be painful, but I think it’s worth it if someone else can be empowered by what you’ve endured. I share because I hope that someone finds strength through what I’ve learned in my weakness.”
