about

Change is one of the most daunting experiences we could go through in life. In the past few years, Melbourne-based multidisciplinary artist, Sandy Hsu has gone through major transitions in her life where she’s had to embrace significant changes – mentally, emotionally, and environmentally. In her second single, ‘Angel Energy’, Sandy continues to share the revelations she’s made by embracing change specifically through learning, growing, and loving.

Premiered via FBi Radio (AU) and Frankie Magazine (AU), Sandy’s first single, ‘Limbo’ was an invitation to listeners to move beyond their personal understanding of the self and to soak in the infinite possibilities of life as intimidating as it may feel. ‘Angel Energy’ serves as a continuation of that narrative where she shares how she has embraced change in a positive light,

“I wanted to be better and I was inspired by the people close to me. I realised that I didn’t have to know everything, but I was always certain of my emotions - and they were somewhat positive at the time, which was different for me, but exciting. That was a change in how I felt, and change can be unpredictable, therefore scary but in my case rather good.”

Composing music since she was in her teens, Sandy had no troubles employing music as an outlet for her angst and frustration. Much like the changes she has embraced, this single takes a directional shift whereby the inspiration behind this song is based on the people around her who she found inspiring and the aura they emitted, which she describes as angel energy.

“I was comfortable with writing songs about neurosis and angst… Until I realised one day that I was quite exhausted by my own neurosis. I was in awe of the people in my life, I felt love, and I was learning new things about myself every day. When you’re younger you think the world’s out to get you, so you’re clever and your guard is up. One day I just realised that I knew nothing about anything that was totally… fine. It’s so cool to not know, and to want to learn, and grow, and to love and give permission to yourself to seek joy. I’m still learning now, but it was a very cool revelation.”

Change can be an overwhelming process, but it’s part of the beauty of existence. This single is a reminder that change can be a beautiful, transformative experience if we choose to focus on love and support. ‘Angel Energy’ set for release on June 14 via Healthy Tapes.

lyrics

I, I know nothing
I, I know nothing
But I feel everything
I feel everything

I wish I could see the beauty in everything
and not find it, and not find it so overwhelming

All this angel energy
Engulfs me
All this angel energy
Engulfs me

I, I know nothing
I, I know nothing
But I feel everything
I feel everything

Yes - I’m changing
It’s a beautiful thing
Even if it scares me
Scares me, Scares me

All this angel energy
Engulfs me
All this angel energy
Engulfs me

I know nothing but I feel everything
I swear I used to know everything
