It is currently number 3 on the roots chart for Triple J Unearthed and number 16 on the overall chart.

Lou was thrilled that the radio station hit101.9 Fraser Coast  played her song.

Currently living in Brisbane, she said she was thrilled but "pretty shocked" by the song's success when the Chronicle spoke to her about rocketing up the Unearthed charts.

Lou will release an album later this year, with another single to be uploaded online in the next couple of months.

She said the song was inspired by a dark time in her life.

"I was in a place that was not great, but I put the negative energy from a bad experience, from a bad part of my life, into this song."
