SINGLE REVIEW: Missy Higgins – 49 Candles


Australian indie-pop favourite Missy Higgins is well and truly back. Her comeback single “Futon Couch” was an intimate, experimental and honest affair which detailed the first moments that she met her husband. It was euphoric and quite different to anything she’s released before and now the songstress is on the road with Ed Sheeran for his massive Australian Stadium tour. To coincide with the tour she’s released another track from her forthcoming fifth studio album “Solastalgia”. This time “49 Candles” delivers a politically charged track that questions the events that are going on in the world where we are experiencing everyone turning against each other and disagreeing where as what we need to do is unite as one. The moody and dark production highlights the serious undertone of the song and uplifts it to give it that empowerful sound. She still knows how to write a killer hook that will be stuck in your head for hours and this song is no different. Compared to the lead single the contrast of the different emotions is impressive and is quite cinematic. I am very intrigued to hear how the rest of the album will compare and uplift the vulnerability she has already shared.
