New single from Fallstar! Chris Ratzlaf gives some insight into “SSRI Feel Better Already.”
This song is about humanity’s will to live despite hopeless circumstances, and how those of us who struggle with depression lose that will. From indigenous people during their colonization, to kids born today into a world suffering irreparable climate change, there is a resilience in humanity to continue and press on. The song muses at this phenomena, while contrasting with my crippling depression, and how SSRI medicine gave me back that will and drive to keep living.
The single is from their upcoming album “Sunbreather,” out February 2021.
