Brie Spaulding - Flowers for the Dead | Song Review


Brie Spaulding is a singer-songwriter and producer from Chicago, Illinois. Her debut single, 'Flowers for the Dead', was released in November 2020.

The song is a soulful alt-pop ballad which portrays beautiful vocals throughout with a soft piano-based instrumental and the occasional aggressive base.  This was a great choice for a debut single by Brie.  It not only shows off her incredible vocals but her amazing songwriting skills also.  It always people to get to know her voice and songwriting style in an instance and I am not disappointed at all.

The song is all about you feeling incapable of falling in love or coping with a recent breakup.  Usually, break up songs go in a normal patter where the other person did something wrong and that is the reason the relationship finished.  However, 'Flowers for the Dead' is all about you not feeling capable to love anyone.  You can really hear the pain and emotion within the lyrics.  So powerful.

With Brie's amazing vocals and songwriting skills, I am very interested and excited to hear future releases.  I am looking forward to seeing which direction she takes her music.

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.
