Alex Lahey's 'I Haven't Been Taking Care Of Myself' Is An Honest, Essential Anthem For The Young

Written By Sam Murphy on 09/15/2017

Alex Lahey's songwriting has always been vivid and personal but I Haven't Been Taking Care Of Myself may be her most honest yet.

The track a reminder to herself to make sure that she doesn't lose sight of her own mental and physical health while in a relationship with someone else.

It's a huge pop/rock song but the lyrics are sure to resonate with plenty of young people who struggle to find that balance between caring for themselves and for others. It also comes that day after R U OK? day, serving as another pertinent reminder to be aware of and talk about your own mental headspace.

It's taken from Lahey's forthcoming album I Love You Brother out next month.
