Amsterdam based indie singer-songwriter Borka Balogh calls for a change in the way society deals with mental health in latest release ‘Burden‘. Released on World Mental Health Day (October 10th) to raise awareness for mental health issues, ‘Burden’ is an indie-pop number dealing with a melancholic nature.
On the release, Borka stated, “I wanted to illustrate how insanely difficult it is for people to adhere to the standard of being normal and fit into society at the same time. I don’t believe in normality – I think that we are all different in how we deal with our life and some of us get ostracised from society because we are somehow too different. I want people to know that there is nothing wrong with being that. If we all realize this, maybe we can create a more inclusive crowd full of us ostracised ones.”
A heartbreaking song that deserves to be heard, Borka Balogh uses music as a sort of escapism, and it requires your full attention.
