A faltering, introverted, vocal carries this delicate song of social anxiety and an inability to connect with others.  Alienation and anxiety and a tense swell of fear building within her “there’s a storm in my chest / I can’t catch my breath/…/ I can’t spit it out – don’t mind me”.  The only downside is that Maria Kelley drew on her own experiences on ‘Small Talk’.
