Filiah – In a Haunted House (Spotify)

“At a low tempo, you can feel the melodic guitar, soft drums and the fabulous atmosphere of Indie Folk. Nice intro, magical vocal line, smooth transitions and solid outro. It looks like an ancient lyric poem, which has been endowed with a peculiar twist.”

“В низком темпе чувствуются мелодичная гитара, мягкие барабанные партии и сказочная атмосфера Indie Folk. Приятное интро, магическая вокальная линия, плавные переходы и не менее добротное аутро. Похоже на древнюю лирическую поэму, которую наделили своеобразной изюминкой.”

In a Haunted House is the third single of Filiah’s upcoming concept album For Someone and also the last song of the album, reflecting one more time on everything she processes in the previous songs but ending on a much lighter note.

She talks about letting go of old patterns, people and ghosts once and for all and opening herself up to new possibilities again.

Filiah in her own words:

"For me, this song feels like a trip through my diary entries. Seeing this whole past toxic relationship of mine pass by me again just made me realize that fighting for this one person had me ending up really tired. I'm saying one final „Goodbye“ and making peace with a ghost I’ve held on to for a long time. It's the last song on my upcoming album and ends on a much lighter note than the rest, reminding me that trusting in people again is the hardest yet bravest thing you can do after trauma."

It is the third and last single before the release of her upcoming concept album For someone- a raw and honest exploration of love, grief, nostalgia and all feelings in between. All the songs on her upcoming album are lyrically intertwined, telling the songwriter's honest and very personal story of pain, distorted perception, finding strength and choosing herself again after the ending of a very toxic past relationship with someone.

In a Haunted House, as well as the whole album were recorded and produced by Filiah herself in her living room.

Filiah – Goodbye (Spotify)

“Against the backdrop of gentle orchestration & a repeating guitar note Filiah’s sweet & pure vocal harmonies reach out to tug at your heart. Goodbye is a song that describes the deep sense of abandonment, loss & heartache one feels when someone you love ends the relationship.”

Goodbye is an unfiltered insight into Filiah's mind.

The song deals with the feeling of abandonment after the sudden ending of a deep love. It's about how the process of choosing to love yourself and saying goodbye can feel like both the best and most painful choice at the same time.

"This song is about me realizing that sometimes it doesn’t matter how great and infatuating a love is, if the people involved just end up in these toxic patterns again and again. I found myself getting caught up in nostalgia and memories on purpose just to still feel close to this person after they left. It felt as though I was literally carrying that ghost with me everywhere. And it was crushing. That was not how I wanted to remember it. So I wrote this song as a reminder for myself that saying goodbye sometimes is the only right choice."

It is the first single of an upcoming concept album- a raw and honest exploration of love, grief, nostalgia and all feelings in between.

Goodbye, as well as the album was recorded and produced by Filiah in her living room.
