Toronto-based alt-rock and indie band Madame Psychosis welcomed the New Year with the release of “Hopeless”, a compelling ballad that covers the journey of overcoming heartbreak and embracing fresh freedom. "Hopeless" was recorded at Union Sound Company and Raventape Music Room.

The song combines the band's alt-pop and indie rock roots with elements of soul and gospel. What begins as a raw, stripped-down first verse evolves into a passionate, multilayered crescendo that serves as the song's emotional high point. The song features great vocal harmonies and a forceful chorus.

“I wanted to delve deep into heartbreak but I also wanted it to be a redemption song that speaks to the ability to grow from wrenching pain and the disheartening moments we all inevitably experience in life”, says Michelle Mondesir, the band’s lead singer and lyricist. “The idea of loss runs throughout the song, including the loss of the person you loved, loss of parts of yourself, and loss of hopes and dreams for a future that seemed irreversibly attached to a now failed relationship.”
