Friday is here once more and that means new releases!
Oh Fuck, It’s Saturday Already and I’m Probably Gonna Do It All over Again- Girlsgirlsgirls
Kicking of with loud guitars and pounding drums, the first verse takes to song a slower pace and adds synths to the mix. Taking the vocals to a higher level on the chorus, as well as the instrumentation contrast with the dreamy tone that is set on the verses. The second verse keeps with this theme and flows back into the chorus. Going slower and with a different instrumentation on the bridge, gives the last chorus its hit.
Lyrically the song talks about heartbreak, mistakes and being stuck in the same motions even through you know that you need to change.
What I like about this song is the use of synths and the hook that is featured on the chorus.
Britannia Mills – Downcast
Opening with haunting guitars combined with slow drum and bass, the first verse adds emotional vocals into the mix. The chorus keeps its haunting energy but does add more energy behind the vocals. Going with different vocals on the second verse the instrumentation stays the same. The chorus keeps the same as the first. Bringing the song to its emotional edge on the bridge, which flows into the ending of the song.
Lyrically the song talks about dealing with demons of the past
What I like about this song is the emotional feel and the hook on the chorus.
Brighter Days (are Before Us)- Meet Me @ The Altar
Slowly opening with the sounds of guitars in the distance and pounding drums, the first verse adds the guitars and vocals into the mix. The chorus takes thing to a high point, keeping with the songs overall energy. The bridge is filled with guitars and breakdowns keeping with MM@TA style. The song ends with one last chorus.
Lyrically the song talks about leaving the past behind and looking at the future
What I like about this song is mostly the instrumentation, which is bouncy and energetic. On top of that there is the earworm of a chorus that is featured on the song.
I Think I Hate Myself- Hot Milk
Starting of with Jim his vocals sounding far away and electronic effects, the song adds Han her vocals as well as pounding drums. Going with louder guitars on the chorus brings a contrast with the synth driven verse. The second verse features Jim his vocals again and adds Han’s on the second half of the verse. Following the same blue print on the second chorus, the bridge switches things up with an instrumental high point. The song ends with one last chorus.
Lyrically the song talks about anxiety, overthinking and as the title suggests is hating yourself.
What I like about this song are the pop hooks, and the use of synthesizers.
PMA – All Time Low Ft Palewaves
Opening with a lone guitar and Alex his vocals, the song has an instrumental break, before introducing the first verse. The chorus flows over from the verse and ends with a new instrumental break. Going to Heather her vocals on the second verse, the next chorus is also sung by her. The song goes to its slower side on the bridge giving the last chorus its extra push.
Lyrically the song talks about the mental strain of the pandemic lockdowns and adjusting to social live again.
What I like about this song is the sing-along feel the chorus has.
