Now she sings about a hunger for love and intimacy - all kinds of, in friendship, with strangers, with yourself, gained and lost, forever and fleeting. Hearing Vaarin sing and seeing her perform is uncomfortable. She touches something in you that you thought you had tightly tucked away so you wouldn’t have to deal with it. “Sometimes I try not to do it, because it is emotionally draining, but I can’t repress it.” Vaarin can crack you wide open and she will.
And the weirdest thing is: although it feels so horrible, so vulnerable - it is good, cleansing and honest.
