Toronto, ON-based Chinese Canadian alt-pop singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Vicki Lovelee has unveiled her single, “On Your Knees.”
“On Your Knees” is about the back and forth battle we have when faced with a tough decision. It’s a theatrical, alt-pop song with rhythmic grooves in the verses and fun dance melodies in the chorus.
This song is about someone who doesn’t deserve you, but the head and heart are having a hard time agreeing on whether or not to leave this person.
“This year, I’m embracing a new phase of emotions. I’m ready to start a new phase — one that’s more confident, angry, and part of the healing process.” says Lovelee.
Lovelee uses orchestral instrumentation and fuses them with dramatic, pop elements, ultimately creating a dark and theatrical sound.
Lyrically, Lovelee is unafraid to dive deep into topics like religion, death, and struggle with anxiety.
“I’m a huge advocate for mental health awareness and believe in the acceptance of all cultures and identities” says Lovelee. “I take painful experiences and turn them into music and empowerment.” Lovelee frequently uses skulls, pink paint and eccentric black clothing to help tell her story. “I’m ultimately a storyteller — through music, art and fashion” she continnues.
