Astraea returns with a mystical challenge to her inner demons with haunting piano ballad, ‘My Own Worst Enemy’
It’s a tough thing to face up to your innermost fears. But what if the thing you are most afraid of… is yourself? In this haunting piano ballad, Astraea addresses her inner critic and self-saboteur, with no holds barred…
“She clings to my sanity…” Astraea separates the person she is from her own worst enemy in this remarkably relatable tale of imposter syndrome and self-sabotage. It’s been made clear through her own personality and actions as a public figure that Astraea wants to do her part to stamp out gender inequality and patriarchal microaggressions which lead to female self-doubt in society, and with this song, we begin to see why.
The track is haunting, making use of echoed vocals and minor piano chords to support Astraea’s ethereal vocals. It’s a truly affecting track in which Astraea puts into words and music the vulnerability of a generation of people trying to make their way in the world, doing so with honesty and humility.
