Her honesty is all in her vocals. Like Miley Cyrus, there’s little to no filter when she sings. It’s all laid bare, her feelings coating her song. Even as she bids farewell to her youth, she passionately wants it back. She celebrates it in light of the hard times she’s having as an adult. Contemplating choices that led to where she is, and wanting to stay blissful in ignorance. And the soundscape is matched to elevate her many moods, thoughts, and emotions. The pop rock is perfectly matched to carry the dual dimensions of the theme. Listen Now!
