Beside the Pool – Love Is a Religion (Spotify)

“Bold title and explosive chorus, which can increase your heartbeat in a blink of an eye. This new release comes with plenty of Electro Pop energy, passionate lyrics and professional performance.”

Artist said about this song:

"'Love Is a Religion' not only refers to the fact that love shouldn't have any boundaries, race or gender (love is free!) but also the importance of the connection you have with your loved ones (friends, family, you lover). This connection can really help you heal. This track is more about being down because of all the pressure society tends to kind of build these days. Especially the pressure that comes from social media, or just worrying about our futures, breaking up with someone, hectic lifestyles, all the rush, triggers and not having enough time to kind of reconnect with yourself.

The 'storms' I'm referring to in the song are the downs I was going through at the time. But what helped me go through that period is my family and my friends, I've always felt loved and blessed to have these people in my life, it's always been very important to me.

I feel like a lot of young people are going through these things and a lot of us kind of push them deeper and deeper inside. We let these things pile up until they explode in worst possible ways."
