It is easy to look at someone else and say, “Calm down, it’ll be okay,” but to take that advice and implement it for yourself? That is a hill most of us cannot reach the top of. Thankfully, songs like “Check Your Feelings” by A.B. Violet can be a permanent reminder to just breathe.
With that said, “Check Your Feelings” is far from this new age mantra of a song. It’s quite the opposite as it sounds as if it were lifted from the set of Netflix’s ‘Stranger Things’ with its definite ‘80s synth sound that gives way to an eerie wave. A.B. Violet pulls you in with the music as the striking mystery of it is inviting, but she keeps you around with the advice-like sentiments that hold the song together. Written in an overwhelmed state of mind, A.B. Violet was gracious enough to share this personal reminder with the world.
“Check Your Feelings” is one of several new songs A.B. Violet has released this year and with each, she’s shown a varied side of what she does musically. This was her homage to the synth of yesteryear while “Cold, Cold Heart” felt inspired by House music of the ‘90s, while “Just Like Home” is an airy ballad showcasing vocal vulnerability. All in all, she’s continued to step up and show up with each new piece of music released.
