RGM RATING (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️)
I love how Loviet holds nothing back in this song.
Toronto, Canada-based singer and songwriter, Loviet, has superstar written all over her. Yes, she has a voice that can move mountains, but she also has a swagger to her that rubs off on anyone that listens to her music. After releasing the captivating three-song EP, Everyone Knows the Thrill When it’s Over, Loviet is back with a brand new single called “Picture.”
Below is what Loviet had to say about her new single:
“This song is me being at the mercy of life and the elements. In this track, I feel like I’m trying to reach back to a place that’s earthy and cathartic while I’m being pulled forward in the viscous cycles of social media and modernity. I created the initial track at a kitchen table during a 14 day quarantine and wanted to get all my frustrations out. I don’t know the version of myself that I’m putting online and I don’t understand the relationship I have with it, but it tortures me daily, and I know the way I used to live versus now and that haunts me too. I’d like to be at peace with both but think it’s all just too fucked up, and I’d like to know it’s worth it in the end.
The following things accompany this song’s strong messages: An uptempo/lively instrumental, memorable melodies, and a vocal performance that is intoxicating. When “Picture” finally comes to an end, you should feel restored in some kind of way.
