Watching someone who did you wrong thrive and prosper can sometimes be to swallow. Idman faces these feelings in her new song, “Good Life.”
Coupling somber and tranquil sounds, Idman, using a galled tone, loathes at the idea of her ex living their best life after looking back at the wickedness they put her through.
In a statement, Idman said the single is the “breakup song I was almost too embarrassed to write.”
She added, “It’s okay to not want to root on the people who hurt us. It’s okay to feel bitter and pathetic. It’s also not okay to just stay there either. Both things can be true. I stand behind how I was feeling when I wrote it and even though a couple of lines still make me cringe knowing I’m sharing this with the world, I know that I’m not alone in feeling these feelings.”
Idman later said, “This song was instrumental in my healing, and I truly hope that it finds the people who it can hold in the same ways it has held me.”
“Good Life” is paired with an accompanying video. Directed by Jinsun Lee, the visual honors the perseverance and strength of the late Ronnie Spector, a member of The Ronettes and a victim of reported domestic abuse by her ex-husband Phil Spector. Watch it below.
Idman’s new track is her first release of the year. In 2021, she released her debut song “Down For It” and its supporting visual as well as “Polytics.”
All tracks are expected to appear on her forthcoming EP, Risk, arriving later this year via Artista Records.
