After the success of her self titled debut EP, pop singer-songwriter Lulu Simon is back with her newest track, “Strangers.”
Cathartic exploration, relatable lyrics detailing identity loss, combined with Simon signature 80’s synth ‘sensitive pop’ sound, result in an empowering anthem.
“I wanted this guy to like me so I drove myself absolutely insane trying to fit into an environment that just ended up being so inhospitable to me and my sensitive ass. Eventually I had to admit to myself that I was becoming insecure and miserable when I’m not meant to be either of those things. I had to do major damage control and remove myself from the situation. I decided ‘I don’t want to be friends with you, I’ve never been just friends with you, I don’t know how to be and I don’t want to learn.’” She continues, “Lesson of the story is love yourself and don’t settle, especially for something that is unhealthy for you or for someone who wants to change you,” Simon shared.
Simon is the daughter of Paul Simon (Simon & Garfunkel) and Edie Brickell (Edie Brickell & New Bohemians).
