ELIO "Hurts 2 Hate Somebody"

ELIO, writes and produces songs from her bedroom, which speak to her generation and their shared experience of loneliness. Today, she has released “hurts 2 hate somebody”, the latest single from her forthcoming EP Can You Hear Me Now. The track follows her previous single “jackie onassis.”

Speaking about ‘hurts 2 hate somebody’, ELIO says “hurts 2 hate somebody is a track about moving on from resenting someone or even a situation. I’m naturally a very pessimistic person, I’ve really had to train my mind to not jump to the worst thing that could possibly happen or just assume someone hates me right off the bat. It gets to a point where you get so tired of being miserable that it’s more harmful to yourself than to the person you hate. It’s really not worth the energy, and when you realize that, you begin to recognize it in other people. I feel like it’s so trendy to have a bad attitude, or to be too cool to care for people but hate is so toxic for yourself and everyone around you, go be happy, put the good energy out and it’ll come back.”

“The video for hurts 2 hate somebody is set at a high school because it’s the clearest place and time of everyone’s life to depict how hate really looks, immature and thoughtless. Our world is filled with resentful and hateful adults, just as immature as a high school student. People think we grow out of spitefulness, we become wiser as we get older but it’s simply not true. I look back on my time in high school, all the fights and drama, the bullies, the gossiping. It was trivial but it caused me so much stress at the time, I can’t imagine how much more I could’ve done with that time if I just let people be, what goes around comes around.”
