Alternative indie folk singer Rory Taillon (pronounced Tay-lawn) just released his new single "Hatchet" and to celebrate we asked him to tell us about the track. Here is the story:

Hatchet was born out of my frustrations with the social obligation to accept toxic behaviour from people in your life and the crushing anxiety of having to spend time with said people. I struggle with the expectation to accept abuse from someone or their patterns of destructive, toxic actions simply because they are family or because the onus is placed on everyone else due to the offending individual refusing to work on their issues. I grew tired of "burying the hatchet" over and over again and what the anticipation for the behaviour to happen again was doing to my own happiness and struggles with mental health. Letting go of the obligation to someone who causes anguish and misery can be incredibly freeing while also being really difficult because it is not what is expected in most cases, especially in a family dynamic.
