Song of the Day: Secret Shame – Zero

Zero is the final single and music video from the North Carolina band Secret Shame, ahead of their sophomore album, Autonomy. The track exposes the fragility and insecurity underlying in mental illness, and it is a direct connection into the personal battle and thoughts of Secret Shame vocalist Lena. Here’s how they introduce it: “Confronting the fragility and vulnerability that’s inherent to mental illness, the compelling track is a direct channel into the mind of Secret Shame vocalist Lena’s history of struggle. On Autonomy, there’s a sonic tension between rage and melancholy — the beautiful and the bleak — that finds resolution in the way the music reflects the mood of the lyrics. Lena’s previously-obscure lyrics now directly confront the realities of addiction, body dysmorphia, abuse, and mental illness.” Enjoy the tune!
