Charli XCX - forever | Song Review


 Charli XCX has released a new single titled 'forever' which is the lead single to her upcoming quarantine album 'how i'm feeling now' which is set to be released in May.

The song is a pop and synth-pop song that features darkwave and electronic influences. If I am being honest, I am not a huge fan of the dark waves or electronic influences. When I first played the song, I was shocked as I wasn't expecting the electric, dark waves to start the song with (which could also be seen as a good thing).

One thing I really like about Charli XCX is how creative she is and it really shows in her music. She creates music that is usually not seen as the 'norm' but that is what makes different from everyone else.

'forever' is a love ballad directed towards her current boyfriend. The lyrics show how she wants to be in his life forever, even if they eventually drift apart. The song also addresses the difficulties of the two’s long-distance relationship but maintains how she still feels as strongly as ever for him.

Even though I am not a huge fan of some elements of the song, the overall song is quite good. The lyrics are very catchy and it had me singing after a few listens. It will be interesting to see if the upcoming quarantine album follows the same theme as this song. Charli XC always has a way with pop music that is so unique and creative but different every time. Something we see very rarely.

Overall Rating:

★★★☆☆

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. Listen to the song: Prodigal HQ · When We Bleed
