Love is one of the most talked-about emotions in art. Oftentimes, however, it ends up sappy, romantic, and emotional. This isn’t to say that’s a bad thing, but instead to point out what they’re missing – fun. Being in love with your best friend is exhilarating and exciting. Queensland-based singer/songwriter Sahara Beck captures all these uplifting emotions on her newest release, “Kryptonite”.Pushed along by warbling synths and washed-out vocals, “Kryptonite” can only be described as an all-around experience. It’s equal parts nostalgic and modern. Not only that, but the soundscape seems to ebb and flow around the cool vocals. Lyrics are introspective and suit the dream-like texture phenomenally.
Reminiscent of some of the biggest pop stars of the 2000s like Icona Pop and Kim Petras, the song is light and fun to listen to. Not only that but there’s actual depth to the lyrics. The results are mystical and show off Sahara Beck’s powerful voice phenomenally. From verses to the chorus’ and everything in between fits the tone and keeps the energy up. An awesome song for any occasion.
One of the most impressive parts of this song was how approachable it was. Vocals felt like they came from a real person, and were poetic yet digestible. They manage to paint a picture, without getting too unapproachably poetic. Instead, they strike the perfect balance between catchy and enjoyable chorus’ and introspection. An absolutely awesome song, and definitely one that will find its way onto many of my own playlists.
“Kryptonite” by Sahara Beck can be found on any major streaming service
