“…In these arms, I can dance
But your heartbeats are cold, rhythm
Got a little freedom in these arms
In these arms, I feel love
I’m survivin’ this ain’t livin’
It’s a prison, got no freedom…”

“In these arms” by JP Cooper

UK based indie singer/songwriter JP Cooper comes to us with a reflective and honest soundscape with “In these arms”. With this powerful and intoxicating blend of melodies and lyrics he speaks of addiction from the perspective of a love that is no good for you. He knows that the story he paints is one that we can all connect with because most of us have suffered through it and the rest know someone who was. The track flows with ease through the airwaves painting itself to be romantic but in reality serves us with a vivid bittersweet tale that is near impossible to look away from. JP Cooper understands people and each one of his track delivers a vivid and mesmerizing reflection of the human experience, from the good to the bad. So listen carefully and enjoy the ride!

“ ‘In These Arms’ is a song about addiction…through the perspective of being addicted to a person, knowing they’re not right for you and being in a prison by your own choice. It’s about constantly making excuses for the addiction and projecting romance on to it but ultimately knowing that it’s wrong. I think it’s something that most people would have been through at some point in their lives.. if not, it’s probably gonna happen…unless you’re one of the lucky ones. These are the relationships where you learn a hell of a lot about what is good for you, what you deserve and in turn, if we’re talking in the context of human relationships, what your partner deserves.” – JP Cooper
