Quote from TiKA about new song Walking Disaster

Walking Disaster is a song that I wrote about a really abusive relationship I was in when I was 19. This person just didn’t like me very much and he also didn’t like himself, so we were in this really toxic exchange. I had really poor self-esteem and no clear guidance or direction in terms of how to actually be in a relationship. He only liked my music and he liked when I would be praised by other people but he didn’t actually like me. It took me a while to detach myself because there would be times when he would love-bomb me and it would confuse me.

I wrote Walking Disaster a few years after I escaped from that relationship. I was living in an apartment and it just so happened to have a guitar and I taught myself how to play and wrote this record. When it was finished, I kind of just left the song alone and was very afraid of it. Similarly to my fear of him. Eventually, I asked Desiire to be on the record because at the time I didn’t even have the emotional capacity or the strength to sing it by myself. I was terrified of the song and what it represented. I realized I needed some kind of support. So, it turned into a call and response. That’s what made me feel safer about singing it. It’s a really powerful track and a cathartic one for me because I feel like I’m releasing something that may hopefully heal someone else.

Walking Disaster ft. Desiire
