Olivia O’Brien – Empty

So the lyrics aren’t anything that hasn’t been said or heard before, but they’re straightforward and honest, and that is something to be appreciated. It’s also always refreshing to me to hear depression discussed in a pop song. Take Marina and the Diamonds or Melanie Martinez, for instance. What makes them so great is that they take a genre that should be easy to digest because it just hits your ears the right way, but their lyrics have some pretty heavy emotion behind them. I hadn’t heard much from Olivia O’Brien before, but from what I had heard, it was all fairly bubblegum (in a good way), but I would love to see more like this new track for sure.
