This future garage-inspired remix of Selah Sue's "Pills" is just the vibey tune you needed today.

Taken off Selah Sue’s upcoming album Persona due in March, "Pills" tells about her state of mind on the antidepressants she has been prescribed since the age of 16.“That’s the pathetic me, lost at sea,” says Selah. “For a long time, I’d sensed that I wasn’t feeling enough, as though I was numb to the world.”

Polar Youth (aka Elisabeth Verstraete) decided to wrap these deep and serious lyrics in a summery UK garage track. The self-taught producer, beatmaker and multi-instrumentalist from Ghent, Belgium, granted us a simmery tune, hard not to have on repeat. Polar Youth shares:

People shouldn’t be afraid to talk about anti-depressants, despite them being labelled a
'taboo'. I wanted to put this serious subject out in a light and danceable matter. So it can
get played on the dance floor and get more attention in a fun way. I’m a very positive
minded person and really think that we can dance off the problems we face in life.
