After making huge waves with her major label debut single earlier this year, pop songwriter and TikTok star Peach PRC has returned with her follow-up, ‘Symptomatic’.
Despite the song being filled to the brim with the type of glittery electro-pop Peach infused in debut single ‘Josh’, the song is actually born out of Peach’s experience with mental illness.
“One of the features of my mental illness is I can have really low periods and then swing into an incredible high manic period,” Peach said in a press statement.
“When this happens, I feel like I’m invincible and get really excited about doing lots of stuff—like learning to speak Italian, play 5 instruments, or become a crystal healer.
“Every time, I think I’ve been cured of my depression and mental struggles forever! My therapist once compared to me to Harley Quinn while I am in this state – that kind of bothered me. Then I thought, why don’t I write a song about being on this high and thinking I’m cured and just embrace the fuck out of the Harley-Quinn-of-it-all?”
‘Symptomatic’ also marks the first song Peach PRC has released since she accused comedian Alex Williamson of “abusive” & “predatory” behaviour.
“I’m not the kind of person to do this ever but I will not be able to sleep at night or forgive myself if I don’t come out and warn people about this man,” Peach said at the time.
“He is abusive, manipulative and predatory and has done absolutely vile things to not only myself but others who i won’t mention for their privacy.”
