Glasgow-born artist Luchi shares the radiant new single ‘Fix This Love’. The track, laden with poignant emotion and momentous writing, takes listeners on a journey through heartbreak and resilience.
A melancholic piano melody sets the scene, accompanied by flowing string arrangements that intertwine seamlessly with Luchi’s ever-passionate vocal performance. As the song progresses, additional instruments join the ensemble, creating bittersweet soundscapes through the inclusion of bass and acoustic guitar. Luchi’s vocals, steadfast in their delivery, soar through heartbreaking melodies, leaving an indelible mark on the listener.
The hook, repeated one last time, features the powerful line, “Can’t say I didn’t try to fix this love” a haunting reminder of the song’s emotional depth. The lingering impact of these lyrics showcases the profound songwriting prowess of Luchi.
He explains the track:“’Fix This Love’ is the sister song to my last single ‘Mountain’ and shows the other side of the pain and destruction caused by addiction; whereas ‘Mountain’ shows the struggle of the addict trying to find the strength to get help, ‘Fix This Love’ tells the story of the people around the addict who have their lives thrown into turmoil too. I really wanted to release these back to back as I felt it was important to represent both sides of the journey and as someone who has had someone extremely close to them fight addiction, I know all too well the pain of being on the other side. Out of respect for the person’s privacy, I am keeping their identity anonymous as that’s not my story to tell but they gave me their blessing to tell the story from my perspective in the hope that it can help others so that is why I have been vague in my description of them through both single releases.
It was probably one of the hardest times of my life, I wasn’t sleeping, eating, couldn’t work to my full potential, waiting by the phone for news, my whole life became consumed with trying to help this person and I wrote this song to get out the anger and hurt I was feeling at the time. While I am fully aware that addiction is a debilitating illness, watching someone you love destroy their life is utterly heartbreaking and you feel a whole wide range of emotions, from anger, to hurt, to frustration. While I tried to remain calm and positive when interacting with this person, I wrote this song to get out the other emotions I was feeling. I never intended to release this song if I’m honest as it’s really upsetting for me to sing and takes me back to that devastatingly sad time but I feel that it is important to tell the whole story of how addiction steals more than just the addict’s life.
There are some fantastic organisations out there to support people through having a loved one with addiction problems like AL-ANON and other support groups. I would actively encourage anyone in that position to reach out to get help for themselves on how to navigate this often excruciatingly difficult road. While some addiction stories have a recovery at the end of it, sadly this isn’t always the case. I remember going to a friend’s and family meeting, in my hometown of Glasgow, with this person and they said that only 1 in 10 people recover and this utterly shocked me. I’m sure the stats are different in every country but I think it’s about time that we have help more readily available for all people battling addiction and it’s something I am passionate about helping change.”
