Billie Eilish is a name that’s very quickly making its way around the globe, and with the release of her latest single Bury A Friend, she is not showing signs of slowing down anytime soon.
A deep voice croaks “Billie” and is followed by a hauntingly atmospheric instrumental, which sets the mood for the whole song. Those distinctive vocals kick in with a very catchy, thought provoking chorus, and while the verse isn’t overly complex, the sharp lyrics mixed with the rhythmic beats set the rest of the song up to succeed. The contrast between the chorus and the verses gives the song light and shade which is something Billie does exceptionally well in all of her work. The dark tones of the lyrics mixed with a haunting but upbeat instrumental is what makes this song unique. The music video for Bury a Friend is something out of horror film but this fits with Billie’s aesthetic very well. The song is captivating from beginning to end and if her next album follows in the footsteps of this song, I think we are in store for a one of a kind musical treat!
