Sometimes, those closest to us hurt us the most. I’ve hurt people I cared about and people I’ve cared about have hurt me. For me, it was an issue of “hurt people hurt people.” I didn’t want to be an a-hole, but I admit: I’ve had some toxic tendencies. So I had to learn how to heal from toxic relationships from the past in order to move forward in the present and future. And boy, let me tell you: it was a doozy (both realizing I was in the wrong and realizing that I’d been wronged).
Angelo David’s “Circles” finds the singer speaking on a toxic relationship, one that still feel intoxicating because of the things she does to him. However, cooler and saner heads prevail. That’s because David lets it be known that he’s done spinning in circles for his partner. I love the DIY recorded-from-home aspect of this, as it gives the track honest feelings and honest reactions to those feelings.
Check out the track below, heal from your traumas and toxicity to grow, and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
