Review: "All In It" - Essy

“All In It” explores whether or not someone will reciprocate someone’s romantic advances. As you sit alone and in your own world, someone approaches you with intrigue in their eyes. Despite their seemingly relaxed demeanor, they expose you to yourself. They seemingly know your faults and how lost you‘ve become. You’ve ended up involved in such a cruel world, so their offer to explore their world appeals to you. Every attempt at explaining yourself and who you are is heard by them. All they want is to know whether you will reciprocate their feelings. They decided long ago that, if you will have them, they are all in for anything with you.

“All In It” is a synthpop-rock anthem that is both energetic and introspective. Synth instrumentation and beats serve as the building blocks for this single. Most of the instruments used are synth-based and tie every element together behind the standout vocality. Throughout, there is an upbeat beat that is continuous in each aspect of the song. The accompanying vocals are notably sweet and low as it continuously grows. One of the most standout aspects of this single is the impressive bridge. Each element that had been building up intersects here in a pleasing amalgamation.

Essy is an accomplished singer-songwriter who I have the opportunity of writing for again. When she was just fifteen, she was accepted into NYU’s summer program. During her attendance, she learned from industry legends such as Barry Eastmond and Maia Sharpe. While attending the University of Virginia, she caught the attention of EDM group Ship Wrek with a piano ballad she composed herself. This achievement led to her signing with NCS Records’ Star Party. Since signing, has worked alongside other talented writers and musicians. She began writing and producing her own music in the late 2010s and has since gained a considerable listener base. Make sure to follow her on social media and give “All In It” a listen!
