Award-winning singer, songwriter, and producer Anthony Rubery is twenty-four-year-old based in Essex with dreams of making it big on the scene… and he’s not too far from it. Experiencing success since his debut EP, Rough Sketch, up to his last release, the one and a half million view Tiktok hit, Dance With Me, Rubery has been marking hearts with his honest lyrics and gritty productions.
Working alongside new and full of potential London-based production duo, Homebodi, to start 2022 on a good note, Anthony brings forth a feel-good track that will make you feel as though you’re on the beach, enjoying a nice sunbath with your eyes closed and a drink in your hand.
The track is meant to work as a feel-good piece that will make you stop thinking for a little while to instead prioritize relaxing and feeling at ease again, yet is it not substanceless. Though its lyrics are easy to follow and there is a certain repetition, the words being sung never get tiring, as they carry with them a message of reassurance and comfort. While listeners close their eyes and let the music take over, this soulful beat will slowly engrain themselves in their minds as a positive message that, over time, might automatically come to mind during times of stress.
Giving more intel on the inspiration behind the track, Rubery brought up the same situation that’s caused millions of people to feel out of touch with others. The artist said: “I specifically wrote it about my fiancée who, at the time, had just graduated in Effects for Performing Arts, only to enter an industry that was on its knees due to COVID. The song is written as a pick-me-up, offering reassurance to believe in yourself and your journey. I think a lot of people would benefit from that right now.”
While written to help one specific person feel less alone, Pressure has the ability to provide that same support to millions of people now that the song is out on all streaming platforms. It is even a crutch for Rubery himself, who had taken a break from releasing music last year, and is now back with a better understanding of the music industry and a newfound determination to make himself known by even more people, whether it be just the UK scene or all over the world.
