You know those climaxes at the end of a romantic movie where the couple are running in slow motion towards each other on a beach for that final embrace that ends film? Well Heather Mae’s latest single I’m Still Here belongs in one of those scenes because this track builds exquisitely throughout until the end where you’re left begging for more.
However, this track is so much more than that, this is a voice or even just an anthem for all the marginalised people out there who’ve experienced hardships or felt beaten down throughout life. It’s a rally cry with the ‘I’m Still Here’ chant being ever present along with the poignant lyrics that feel like an emotional sucker punch with her passionate and enthralling vocal delivering each note perfectly. It’s an emphatic track that will have you reaching for the tissues and make you feel empowered.
