Review: "April Fools in February " - Beck Pete

Love can be exciting! During the honeymoon phase, you get a happy, floating feeling and think nothing can go wrong. However, you are faced with a harsh reality check when the honeymoon phase abruptly ends. In other words, the relationship is not all it’s cracked up to be. It does not have to be April 1st to get fooled. In fact, Beck Pete’s new song is about how a breakup made her experience “April Fools in February.”

One thing I liked about the song was how the guitar hook kept on repeating. It gave the song a good beat and flowed well with the lyrics. You can hear it predominantly on the verses, but it blends really well into the background when the music speeds up on the chorus. Additionally, I liked the progression of the song, how it’s slow and mellow in the beginning but later speeds up on the chorus. The whole song sounds as if Pete is creating a good thing out of an unfortunate situation.

I am so glad that I got to review another one of Beck Pete’s songs! “April Fools in February” is a song off of Pete’s new album, Scared of Everything, Pt. 1. “Softie” is another song off that album that also has a smooth repeating guitar hook. It tackles the heavy subject of men being afraid to show emotion. If the first part is this good, I can’t wait for the second!!
