Aiko (pronounced eye-ko) has released a video for her new single Pedestal, taken from her upcoming sophomore album Fortune’s child.
“Pedestal was the first song where I allowed myself to truly express the emotions of anger and it was the song to kickstart the rock direction of the album,” she explains. “We worked on the song together with Brighton-based producer Steven Ansell, with whom we have been working for a long time. The song is built on distorted, rockier guitars and drums, combined with a shouty vocal.
“The song talks about negative emotions and situations that a person experiences towards the end of a relationship – when a person keeps apologising to you, but nothing changes, you just keep hearing a lot of empty words. At some point, everything falls into place and you realise that it’s time to put yourself first and make yourself the priority. It’s a process and it can take a while before one learns to be nice to themselves.”
