Halsey - Without Me | Song Review

Halsey is an American singer, songwriter and actress. She was born Ashley Nicolette Frangipane and her professional name (Halsey) is an anagram of her first name. She has released 2 studio albums called ‘Badlands’ in 2015 and ‘Hopeless Fountain Kingdom’ in 2017. I have been a fan of Halsey for a while – she creates some really good music and she has a very distinct voice as well as amazing songwriting abilities.

She has released a new single called ‘Without Me’ and it is her first solo single in over a year. This song is rumoured to be about her break up with G-Eazy that happened earlier this year (2018). You can definitely hear from the lyrics that this is a breakup song, and Halsey does break up songs very, very well. Her R&B sound with her distinct voice – amazing!

The bridge of the song is an inverse on Justin Timberlake’s ‘Cy Me A River’ and this song is the first song she has ever written under her birth name. She explained in an interview with Beats 1 Radio that it’s her most personal song yet – and you can definitely hear that through the lyrics.

Halsey is an artist I generally think is underrated! Her music is so good and I am personally a huge fan of her. I really like this song. Her vocals with the personal lyrics really make this song and you can feel Halsey’s emotions while listening to the song.

Prodigal - When We Bleed

Prodigal is an Alternative Pop/Rock artist from Finland. The nature of his music is to be an eccentric mix of all the different styles he listens to and creates something catchy, immediate and current out of it all. His new single 'When We Bleed' was released independently ahead of his upcoming debut album. 'When We Bleed' reflects on a world where every decision and action seems to be motivated by blatant narcissism of some kind. Trying to navigate these odd times, the song tries to find relief in numbers and the fact that for better or worse, we're never really alone in trying to make sense of it all.
