Cheryl Craigie delivers an expressive cry against pain in new single 'Migraine'

  • 2 min read

Pulling no punches, Cheryl Craigie's newest single, 'Migraine' offers a brutally honest and deeply personal exploration of a condition that plagues millions. The track was born from her own struggle with chronic migraines. Craigie's intention is twofold, fostering understanding for those unfamiliar with the severity of the disease, and giving a voice of solidarity to fellow sufferers.

A song that grabs you from the very start, 'Migraine' revels in shimmering synth melodies that mimic the piercing pain of a migraine, while suspenseful loops and surging beats create a sense of mounting intensity. Backed by the instrumentals, Craigie's raw lyrics and assertive tone cut through the soundscape, vividly illustrating the harrowing reality of life under the shadow of chronic migraines.

Her words convey the sense of inescapable claustrophobia brought about by attacks, delivering lines like, "Draw the drapes/Shut the lights/There's no escape/And you've lost the fight." The relentless nature of migraines seeps into her writing as she describes how minutes bleed into hours and days.

A dynamic shift arrives as Craigie incorporates rap into the song. This adds a raw, energetic element to the narrative, heightening the visceral impact. 'Migraine' boldly showcases Craigie's artistic versatility. Her vocals, brimming with sincerity, create a powerful connection with the listener, fostering a deep well of empathy for her experiences.

Speaking about the new release, Cheryl shared, "This has been a very personal and exciting project for me. Millions of people all over the world are migraine sufferers. This song was written for all who live with this agonizing disease and to also bring awareness to those who do not."

More than just a song, 'Migraine' is a poignant outcry against the debilitating effects of a condition frequently trivialized or misunderstood. Cheryl Craigie has bravely laid bare her struggles, giving a voice and a sonic landscape to the shared experiences of migraine sufferers worldwide.
