When we last heard from electro-pop artist Cassie Marin, she was reminiscing about her childhood on “Every Time I See The Ocean.” The nostalgic track contained pensive beats and dreamy lyrics, best reflecting the sense of wonder Cassie feels whenever she visits her watery friend. The single upheld Cassie’s reputation as an innovative singer and songwriter and maintained the hype for her upcoming debut album. Due out later this year, Cassie’s album will explore some of her innermost thoughts and take a look at the way she finds empowerment through her downfalls. This concept comes through on her latest single, “Push Me.”
An impeccable mix of bouncing beats and animated synth, “Push Me” is a sleek piece of electro-pop. On top of its undeniable energy are lyrics that encourage listeners to be confident. Convincingly, Cassie sings, “Oh, did you think I was gonna grow up to be / Somebody that was gonna let you push me down?” She will not let anyone stop her from going after what she wants, what she deserves. You can check it out below.
Telling us the inspiration behind the single, Cassie shares,
“When I originally wrote and produced ‘Push Me,’ I was in a headspace where I felt as if the outside world was telling me ‘no’ all the time. I was abused by people in my life, then judged for my sexuality and for who I was inside. I was surrounding myself with friendships that weren’t allowing me to express the full essence of who I am, and felt like I was constantly being asked to change who I was in order to make others more comfortable. ‘Push Me’ became my medicinal message and constant reminder that the more I welcome every unique part of myself, the more complete I will feel all on my own.”
You can listen to “Push Me” on platforms like Spotify, SoundCloud, and Apple Music.
