Daniella Mason Dances Her Way Through Over thinking with “Get Me Out Of My Head”
“When I’m stressed, it’s honestly comical how quickly I can spiral, and those who know me well can see it coming,” Daniella Mason admits. “‘Get Me Out Of My Head’ is a cry for help to somehow get back into my body and back into reality. It outlines the extremes my mind can go to, but then it also highlights the glimpses of light that work their way in and show me the way out again.”
The Nashville-based singer-songwriter premiered her new single with Just Jared yesterday, heralding the release of her forthcoming EP, Mental State, out later this spring.
While Daniella Mason is no stranger to pop commerciality, earning millions of streams on Spotify and praise from the likes of Popjustice, V Magazine, and Refinery 29, it’s her left-of-center musicianship and distinct powerhouse vocals that afford her credit in tastemaker and alternative spaces, as well. Mason’s material is pop for pop’s sake— no flashy aesthetics or overhyped production— just a knife-edge balance between club banger and emotional gut punch that blurs genre lines to convert fans of all musical sensibilities.
Her forthcoming record is the second of four EPs that she’ll be releasing over the course of the next year as part of her State of Mine sound series. Each album— Emotional State, Mental State, Physical State, and Spiritual State— will explore the different parts of our humanity that we tend to suppress and have difficulty embracing.
“Story-wise, Mental State was the obvious next EP for me,” Mason explains. “My journey through my emotional state and past pain lead me straight to my brain where all of my memories were stored, causing me to have to face some things up there. Previously, my mind had been a place I had only gotten lost in, essentially making me afraid to go there… It’s been a new experience for me, and I hope these EPs continue to reveal more and more of what’s been hidden.”
