Uncovering more of her story by exploring personal battles and triumphs through honest lyrics and infectious dark melodies, 'Trigger Heavy' is the third and arguably most powerful release from Sammi Constantine in 2020 so far.
"'Trigger Heavy' is a hard-hitting reality check for people who continuously self-project their insecurities and bitterness onto those around them. It is about finally standing up for myself, after a toxic whirlwind of emotional manipulation - taking back what I rightfully own and what I made for myself, without the fear of being able to say no."
This release sees the second collaboration with Cyrus (Client Liaison, Rory Adams, CXLOE, GRAACE) as co-write and producer following the release of 'See What You See' last month. The track was also co-written by Janeva Burrill (Starley, Glades, Allday) and mastered by Chris Gehringer (Halsey, Rhianna, Dua Lipa, Lady Gaga).
The single will be accompanied by a self-directed cinematic style music video, co-directed and filmed by Trystin Sinnott. Set to be released Tuesday 26th May, the video takes a more playful approach to her trademark dark edge, portraying a tongue and cheek style story of Constantine's endurance in relationships where she is being disrespected or manipulated. "I wanted to show a strong women taking a stand in situations where she is being taken advantage of, or not getting the respect she deserves. It is up to you to play with the outcome – you can be your own superhero in your story."
