SINGLE REVIEW: Starley – Love Is Love
After the release of her breakthrough single ‘Call On Me’ Starley was immediately added to heavy rotation on radio and playlists alike and became a DJ favourite in clubs around the world. But since the release the Sydney songstress has failed to recreate the magic. Her new single ‘Love Is Love’ is a generic dance-pop track that has an important message of equality and love. However it’s delivered in a tacky and generic way that sees her following in the footsteps of every pop artist before her. It has a very Jess Glynne meets Zara Larsson feel to the production and sounds over used and predictable. The tropical pop and dance beat is boring and if you can put aside that you’ve heard this song 100 times already through other tracks then you may find it catchy. it has an important message that hears her confronting her own sexuality and her unsupportive family which is brave, strong and empowering but I just wish it was done in a bigger and more original way. The most important thing to take away from this song is the lyrics; “Cause love is love”. Remember that.
