Review: "16" - Violet Young

Violet Young has made an impressive debut in the pop world with her new single, "16." The track is the first of a four-song collaboration between New York-based producers and writers Jackson Hoffman, Ryder Stuart, and Julia Brex, with actor and singer-songwriter, Violet Young. "16" is an ode to coming-of-age with a tasteful balance of sounding both modern and timeless. The fresh single is perfect for anyone going through the teenage experience or for those feeling nostalgic for their teenage years. "16" is a happy breath of fresh air for anyone looking to refresh their playlists.

"16" starts off with a dreamy synth-laden soundscape reminiscent of some Blossoms tracks. Soon, Violet Young's unique vocals fill the space and are supported by energetic pop beats and guitar strums. Her voice soars once we arrive at the chorus, delivering melodies that will linger in your mind long after you're finished listening. Young's powerful vocals combined with the ethereal synth sounds create a sound similar to something between Ann Marr's "Bullet" and Maggie Rogers' "Light On." The track is a must-listen for any pop enthusiast or those wishing to fill their ears with a pleasant nostalgia.

Violet Young is an actress and singer-songwriter making her debut in the music industry. She is known for her work in Hulu's Life & Beth as young Amy Schumer (young Beth). Young has also made appearances on NBC's Chicago P.D. and National Geographic's Genius: Picasso. She has done sketches on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and SNL with Andy Samberg. Young has performed at Live at the Apollo and has sang the National Anthem as soloist at the 2019 U.S. Open. Launching her music career with "16," Young is expected to release an EP soon. After such a brilliant debut, Violet Young's upcoming EP is something we can all look forward to!
