Following the release of 'Dust' earlier this year, Rebekah Fitch returns with her new single, 'Game Over'.
Working with her brother to create the impressive visuals, Fitch wrote the song about dealing with the new pressures of adult life as we grow up.
This constant cycle of striving to keep up is reflected in the video game itself.
"I designed the video game with my 17-year-old brother - it was our first time doing anything like this!" said Fitch.
"I’m always trying to think of new ways to engage with people through my music and creativity, so instead of doing another music video, I wanted to create something interactive, that people could be involved in. In a time when we can’t engage with audiences at live gigs, I felt a strong need to find a new way to maintain a tangible connection."
Exploring themes of despondency and disillusionment, the release finds the alt-pop artist, tipped as one of the Hot Press 'Hot for 2019' Irish acts, delving into her electronic influences.
“You’ve lost your youthful ignorance," she said of 'Game Over'. "You’re facing the realisation that nothing in life is working out as you imagined it would, and you can’t fight the overwhelming sense that you're falling behind, doing everything wrong.
"Somewhere within you that childlike hope and magic and lust for life is fighting to survive, despite the weight of responsibility and endless cycle of bad news about the state of the world.”
