It’s Friday the 13th, so it only seems appropriate that someone in the pop world releases a dark track to fit the aesthetic of this ultra superstitious day. And who better to deliver that than ‘Halsey’.
Making a career out of dark, meaningful and brutally honest tracks, the American singer-songwriter has never been afraid to tell it exactly how it is, or speak about things that people are too afraid to articulate in the pop world. With her third studio album ‘Manic’ slated for release on January 17, she has dropped the dark new single ‘Graveyard’ to tie her fans over for now.
Reflecting on toxicity, this song reflects on the impact of someone you love going through mental health issues and learning to not let it start affecting you too. It’s a very serious subject that she manages to deliver in a beautifully romantic and well articulated way. “They say I may be making a mistake. I would’ve followed all the way, no matter how far. I know when you go down all your darkest roads. I would’ve followed all the way to the graveyard”.
It’s a song about love and dedication towards someone but it’s also about self awareness to not let someone else’s demons suffer you. Layered with dark synths, this song is a track that will keep growing on you with each listen. It’s catchy, pulsating and dreamy. And I’m already imagining the captivating choreography she is going to implement into her live performances with this track.
