Lauren Curtius has been through a lot in the last few years, and her latest track "Enough" is a testament to the resilience that has helped her along the way. In the journey through Complex PTSD and the aftermath of an abusive relationship, to the catharsis that triggered this song, Lauren has learned that communication is an important tool in the processing of trauma. The lyrics and the timing of this song—the soul of it—emanates the kind of hesitancy and inner confusion that can plague anyone in the deleterious grip of CPTSD.
Lauren wrote "Enough" on a fortunate day at the height of the pandemic in 2020, subsequently kicking off a cycle of events that would lead to her finding the courage and determination to begin healing. Over the next two years, this song was produced and mixed and mastered between weekly therapy sessions, and became a very tangible and positive symbol of Lauren's recovery from more than a decade of an ex-partner's emotional and sexual abuse.
"Enough" is a 'shimmering indie pop confessional with a folk spirit'—recalling the lazy roots-rock chops of Sharon Van Etten, along with a welcome theme of self-empowerment and some gorgeous vocal work from Curtius. By bearing witness to the moment that she, as a survivor, made the decision to take her power back, Lauren hopes that other survivors of emotional and sexual abuse will feel seen by her work.
