Raven Numan Releases Video For New Single 'Going Down'

The emergence of Raven Numan as the next crossover hope from the gothic scene gathered traction with her recent single ‘Here For Me’.


‘Going Down’ adds a thrillingly more visceral twist on Raven’s recent singles. Appealing to fans of the current dark pop scene, its grittier edge, razorblade riffs and clattering rhythms also echoes the greats of the ‘90s industrial scene such as Nine Inch Nails and Front 242. Yet for all its forceful angst and vehement influences, Raven brings a beguiling femininity that gives the track its own distinct identity. Her lyrics further encapsulate her heart of darkness, recognising - and warning against - the temptation to  surrender to the one impulsion that you can’t reverse.


‘Going Down’ was written solely by Raven, with production from her regular collaborator Ade Fenton.


Raven says,

“I wrote ‘Going Down’ during an extremely dark period of my life. I was incredibly suicidal and it was very difficult for me to control my emotions and I ended up hurting a lot of the people close to me. I felt this immense amount of guilt and writing was the only way I could express my frustrations and sadness since it was hard for me to actually talk about it. So that’s what I did, I sat down and wrote exactly what I was feeling. It was a very intense and upsetting process but I felt this relief after I wrote this song, like weight had been lifted off of my shoulders. I pray that no one relates to this song but if you do, just know that you’re not alone and these feelings are temporary, life’s an incredible gift.”
