“Pretty In The Dark refers to the honeymoon period of a relationship where you think it’s going perfectly, until you realise you’ve completely lost sight of who you really are. I’ve been in the position in the past where I subconsciously created a sort of alter ego because I thought that’s who the other person would want to be with. Looking back now, I don’t see it as a negative, it felt empowering, more so because it turns out they didn’t deserve the real me.” – Jemma Johnson
