SHY Martin is back with a brand new single called ‘Out Of My Hands’.
Produced by Freddy Alexander, ‘Out Of My Hands’ is a delicious slice of mid-tempo pop which showcases SHY’s breathy vocals as she tries to move on from a toxic relationship. Armed with poignant lyricism, the track will resonate with anyone who’s ever experienced an unhealthy relationship.
Speaking about the track, SHY stated in a press release: “I wrote ‘Out Of My Hands’ last summer together with three of my favourite songwriters: Freddy Alexander, SHY Nodi and Madison Love. The song is about leaving behind a destructive relationship that you’ve become addicted to.
“When you’ve been in a relationship for a long time it’s easier and less painful to stay in it, rather than leave it behind, as it’s so hard at the time to know who you are without the other person. I think that’s the reason why people tend to romanticise destructive relationships, and why it’s so easy to fall right back into them.”
