SINGLE REVIEW: Didirri – Don’t Fight With What You’re Fighting For

With the heavy string of cancellations and rescheduling of concerts and festivals during the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, we still have music to uplift, inspire and console us at the end of the day. And that is what music fans should be embracing in the middle of this darkness. And while Didirri has had to reschedule his upcoming Australian tour to November, he has given fans a new single that appropriately resonates with this current moment.

‘Don’t Fight With What You’re Fighting For’ is a reminder to people that positive change starts through your own actions, and at a time where we should all be self-isolating and practicing social distancing, this couldn’t be more relevant. We have the opportunity to come together by doing this and helping each other be safe, but it’s something that can only be done if we take the individual initiative first.

“And honey, just don’t fight with what you’re fighting for” he sings during the refrain before later pleading “Don’t go losing heart. And don’t tear us apart” during the chorus.

Keeping the production minimal to allow the message of the song to take centre stage, he croons through the verses while playing a piano and adds some dreamy harmonies in there to build the sound.

As the song continually grows he adds a simple drum beat and atmospheric synths to build it up even more, and ends up creating a really beautiful moment of reflection.

His relaxed softness and vulnerable delivery is similar to Harry Styles, and this song really highlights that. He’s an artist that continues to deliver raw moments that evoke a lot of emotion and self reflection, and that’s the sort of artist we need in the world right now.
