Summary

At only 17 years old Billie Eilish is incredibly talented. Since the release of her song “Ocean Eyes” she has been an unstoppable force in the music industry. Songs from her first EP have stayed in the Billboard Top 200 for more than 18 months now and more than 5 billion combined streams globally. Her tours have sold out in record time and her new album “When we fall asleep, where to we go?” Is heavily anticipated and comes out March 29. The first released song from said album is “bury a friend” and it certainly lives up to all of Billie’s previous work. The terrifying, yet thrilling music video gives a sort of monster under the bed vibe and is very entertaining. The style of this song is overall a bit different from most of the songs on her first album but still just as good. The catchy beat along with the unique lyrics really let us into the mind of Billie and better understand the concept of her upcoming album. The song is ultimately very good and makes me excited for the rest of the album. Billie Eilish is certainly a name we will be hearing of for many years to come if she keeps putting putting out such fantastic music. Her future is certainly bright.

Summary

The song Over My Head by Echosmith embodies a classic 2018 pop hit. The songs basic melody, along with its rhythmic beat makes this a song you will surely hear at your next party or dance, but not one that I would personally put on voluntarily. Though I will say the song has strong vocals that carry it past the point of mediocrity, and if you like catchy pop songs then this song might be worth a download. I will also say that Echosmith has evolved, and the quality of their music has improved. I would certainly rank this tune above their other popular songs Bright and Cool Kids. The cryptic music video is still a mystery to me, which will hopefully be solved sometime in the near future. Overall I would say that the song is catchy and definitely dance worthy, but is better suited for a party playlist than one filled with your personal favorites

Grace Vanderwaal Review
Moonlight by Grace Vanderwaal is a relatively decent song. The lyrics are very relatable to all generations, despite her being so young, and portray the idea of the intense happiness that comes from being with someone you love effortlessly. The overall quality of the song is diminished slightly by the fact that the song stays at about the same tempo throughout its entirety and never really picks up, or contains any sort of beat drop or change. Moonlight leaves you waiting for that great lyric of bridge that never comes. Another unfortunate thing, is that even though it is a feel good song it isn’t fast enough to dance to which is a key aspect, at least for me, when it comes to choosing songs. The best part about Moonlight is by far Vanderwaal’s signature voice that resonates well with the lyrics and her ever so present ukulele. While the song may be a bit underdeveloped and naive lyrically, it still captures that quirky Grace Vanderwaal spirit that was showcased on America’s Got Talent and that continues to shine in every song she produces. With my many conflicting opinions in each aspect of the Moonlight, I would definitely recommend listening for yourself before excluding this from your playlists for good.

Saving Forever is not your average boy band. They are a band of three brothers that have an amazing and unique sound and style. It’s no wonder why their song Million Ways is a hit with their combination of amazing vocals and the fact that they play their own instruments. It’s catchy chorus mixed with a fun beat just makes you want to sing and dance every time you hear it. Also the music video is is a cool spin on your average “band performs on stage” video because it is set at this cool club where people are shown singing it as if it was a karaoke party. Also the boys unique style adds a special visual element to the video. Honestly, the reason why this band is so incredible is because they do not conform to your typical cookie cutter boy band standards. With influences like Fall Out Boy, Panic! At the Disco, and Paramore it is no wonder why these guys have such unique sound and are overall just so talented. I can definitely recommend that you check them out because they can only get better from here.

Summary

La La Land’s city of stars is a catchy musical number that will have you singing and dancing where ever you go. Its soft piano accompaniment played by Ryan Gosling himself sets the mood of the scene perfectly. Its playful tone and hopeful lyrics will let you imagine what its like to be in love. While the song’s old Hollywood jazz feel will transport the listener back in time and will have them foot taping along to the beat. The passion of starving musicians, Mia and Sebastian, is evident in this piece. The Characters sing of their hopes and accomplishing their dreams even when they seem unreachable. Their persistence and drive to succeed shows, throughout the different reprises of this delightful tune. Though the actor’s voices themselves were a bit of a disappointment, the overall message of the song and the beautiful melody are what ultimately make the song a hit. City of Stars will make you want to follow your dreams and pursue them even when they seem impossible. With the soundtracks star studded cast and its exceptionally well written songs it’s no wonder why La La Land took home so many Oscars and has became a new favorite of film lovers everywhere.
