‘Walk Me Home’ is the massive new track from alt-pop newcomer, Vissia – with the looks and talent to go the whole way.
Her latest track is a celebration of vulnerability, set to a tugging-on-heartstrings piano part and an emotive instrumentation. The Canadian singer is someone whose talent truly speaks for itself, with impressive vocals and songwriting ability to rival that of Taylor Swift and Adele – those names who truly bring human emotion into every facet of their songs.
Drawing from the power she finds in nature and in the earth, as well as the empowerment which is inarguably found in the capability to admit her own vulnerability, VISSIA’s music takes on otherworldly properties. ‘Walk Me Home’ is no different; VISSIA’s production is dreamlike, with an ethereal yet powerful vocal floating over the top, with as much warmth and depth as her eyes.
It is clear that in writing ‘Walk Me Home’, VISSIA found a sense of solace, of arriving at the person she was supposed to be all along. Speaking of the song, she says, “It wasn’t until a couple of months later that I realized that the song I’d just written shared the same sentiment as a beloved Ram Dass quote; we’re all just walking each other home. Maybe I had forgotten about reading it before? I don’t believe in coincidence, so however it found its way from my subconscious and onto the page is not really all that important to me. ‘Walk Me Home’ is a reflection on what vulnerability means to me. It’s not a weakness to need someone to lean on. It’s okay to be kind to the messiest parts of myself. It’s taken me a long time to forgive my past selves. Choosing my emotions over chaotic escapism really is a practice, and it does get easier the more I do it.”
