At the start of the month, Nashville singer-songwriter Mokita released a stunningly tender song called ‘down’. While it initially slipped under our radar, we’re so pleased to have come across this emotive piano-led song so that we could share it with you.
‘down’ is the song that you need to listen to when days aren’t looking too good and you need a reassuring voice in your ear to let you know that it will all be okay with time.
What’s great about this piano-meets-beats single, is that it comes from a place of experience, as Mokita kindly shares with us:
“I’ve had some really rough seasons in my life where my depression was just so bad and I didn’t feel like I was ever going climb out of it, but through those times I’ve had some close friends who have walked with me through those seasons; who have encouraged me and just been present. I think the theme of this song was really just a letter to those friends who are going through those things, and to anyone who is having a hard time. Everybody needs a friend to walk with them through the hard seasons and sometimes just being present, being available to listen, and being faithful, is the best way to love someone through those times.”
