Xondra Releases New Song “Inner Child”
- New York-based singer-songwriter Alexondra O'Connell, aka Xondra released a new song “Inner Child” on October 25, 2022.
The song is taken from her upcoming visual EP “Tedious & Brief”, following “Dead Girl” released last month.
It was written by Alexondra O'Connell and produced by Shubham Mondal.
The track delivers important message about finding the root of one's pain and lovingly embracing it.
“'Inner Child' is about how someone can have the same experience as you and come out with a completely different perspective. In this case in particular, it's about siblings who cope differently after growing up in a toxic home environment,” Xondra said of the song. “I have always been very reluctant to write about this kind of thing because it is so personal. 'Inner Child''is me validating what I went through, even if it's too difficult for the other people involved to do the same. We all heal at our own pace and in our own way. This is me giving myself permission to be honest about my experience and how it impacted me. I am still moving through it and granting myself grace as I continue to heal because healing is never linear.”
- The new visual EP comprises 6-track and is set to be released on November 4, 2022.
She said, “I wrote the songs for Tedious & Brief during a very low point in my life. I was grappling with memories of abuse while unknowingly in an abusive relationship. I felt stuck and heavy with the feeling that I'd never know what it is like to feel safe. I read the poetry book , 'Life Of The Party' by Olivia Gatwood and it touched me in a way no other piece of literature had before. I couldn't stop thinking about it. I couldn't sleep for weeks because every night I'd have nightmares about the senseless violence that women face everyday. I felt crushed under the weight of sadness I felt for women everywhere. Tedious & Brief is a story of survival. It is a scream of truth in a room of hushed voices. I wrote the songs with the visual in mind. This is my first body of work that I created a whole world for. I didn't write this story for myself, though I admit writing it helped save me in a way. I wrote this story for all of the people who have been hurt by the people who were supposed to love and keep you safe. I wrote this film for all the people learning to speak up even if their voice trembles. I've had this story in mind for you from the very beginning of this process.”
