“I wrote ‘Givin Up’ as an anthem of how dating is so mistreated,” Jane Decker says of her song, premiering here today. “The song is talking about how I think we all struggle with dating out of boredom, and dating because we are looking for someone to share our life with. I think it’s important to learn from bad relationships, but not to make the same mistake again. We learn, we move on, and we get closer to finding the person who was made to be ours.”
That’s a lot of subtext packed into a a song that feels like three minutes of fun on the surface, a throwback synth pop track that exudes neon charm.
