WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM ISABELLA LAVALLE – LOVE INTEREST
Ever fallen for someone that you probably shouldn’t have? You’ve come to the right place because this song is all about that.
About being interested in someone and wanting to pursue a relationship with them despite what others around you say, there’s a sense of ‘I’ll do what I want’ nature with this song that comes across as current and exactly what people who like chart music want to listen to. The third single from Isabella Lavalle is contemporary and you can definitely hear nudges to artists such as Taylor Swift and Joni Mitchell in her work.
Desiring to be the better version of yourself even if you’re feeling head over heels for someone else, ‘Love Interest’ is relatable – maybe not for me who’s in a happy relationship – but for anyone that’s got a hardcore crush on someone. Stating that she writes and sing because it’s cheaper than therapy, you can tell this artist doesn’t beat around the bush and uses music as a type of healing.
The chord progression in the song feels somewhat safe for the actual message, I feel like it could have been a bit more complicated to have gone with the complex subject. Nevertheless, it’s Isabella’s voice that enchants. It reminds you that music doesn’t have to be perfect in certain areas. It reminds you that music is human and deserves to be felt.
I’m intrigued to hear where this songwriter goes next, it feels like we could be the presence of an artist that grows into something quite special.
