Review: "Acquaintance" - Simone Miller
Simone Miller delivers a powerful, emotional track with her new single, "Acquaintance." The song provides an introspective look into mental isolation and superficial relationships. Through the lyrics, Simone conveys her unwillingness to engage in these meaningless relationships, lamenting over how draining they can be. She expresses that she'd rather be isolated than dragged down by people who are only an acquaintance. Being surrounded by superficial relationships and feeling out of place in certain scenes can feel more lonely and exhausting than just being by yourself. "Acquaintance" is a cathartic listen for anyone struggling with these emotions and the toll it takes on your mental health.
Featuring a minimalistic, stripped-back arrangement, "Acquaintance" prominently showcases Simone Miller's impressive voice. Her sultry vocals hit us with a wave of emotions as she belts out her frustrations. The song highlights Simone's powerful range, as she transitions from deep and husky verses to light and soaring over the chorus. Delivering heart-wrenching melodies, Simone shows her vocal abilities off with intricate embellishments. Predominantly focusing on voice, piano, and guitar, "Acquaintance" provides a composition full of vulnerability, matching the raw emotions present in the lyrics.
