Salem Native Rocker’Anne Bennett’ releases a surprising track ‘Heavy Hand’ ready to debut in Formula Indie the 30th of October
My name is Anne Bennett, and I would love for you to write a piece about my new song “Heavy Hand.”
I wrote this song during a road trip down south in the middle of the pandemic. I was on my way to a memorial service for a family member who was killed in a hit-and-run motorcycle accident. This trip was a sort of escape for me, because all year I felt like I was losing my mind, having no choice but to stay in one place…It pushed my depression to places it had never been. I was feeling so angry and defeated, not only about my cousin’s death but about the pandemic, and the lyrics just started to pour into my head on the road. ‘I am the almighty figure who owns this broken town,’ as if I was in fact the virus. Heavy Hand is a ‘you can run but you can’t escape’ type of song. I (the virus, depression, death) will always get you in the end.
Thank you so much for taking the time to listen!
