Inspired by the COVID-19 pandemic and quarantine, Nadia Vaeh’s “Never Leave The Basement” reveals how many individuals cannot cope with society when experiencing social anxiety, like herself. This lively track is a must add to your work-from-home playlists.
“I am naturally an introverted person…the world can be kinda intimidating. I am a very sensitive and empathic person, and I just get overwhelmed,” explains Nadia Vaeh. The thought-provoking and introspective upbeat single talks about how every day feels the same, like you’re stuck in a basement with life on repeat and the toll that can take on your mental health.
This past year has been extremely stressful and challenging for everyone. Too often we don’t vocalize the vulnerability we feel inside. “Never Leave The Basement,” sheds light on the feeling of loneliness that most of us are experiencing physically and emotionally. In keeping with that message, Vaeh is donating proceeds of the song to AKFSA – Andrew Kukes Foundation for Social Anxiety, an organization dedicated to educating people who struggle with social anxiety.
Although recent times have been difficult and seemingly confusing, songs like this remind us all we are never truly alone. Help is out there, and support is closer than we think. “Never Leave The Basement” is sure to get you up and moving and on to better days.
