Review: "Begin" - Fairlane x Britt Lari

Sometimes as people, we can feel a loss of self-identity. It can be caused by many things: another human, ourselves, society, social media; the list is endless. It can create a toxic energy that is unwanted and overwhelming. We lose control of ourselves to the point where it can be harming to us. Fairlane and Britt Lari’s song, “Begin” is about beating ourselves up for feeling embarrassed or ashamed of everything that eats us up inside, possibly caused by something we allowed to happen. We’re blinded by these negative things or thoughts that we can’t seem to get out of. It’s almost like an addiction; when it seems like things are starting to get better, something happens to bring us down and then it begins all over again.

“Begin” starts immediately with Lari’s raw vocals followed by an echo creating a dreamy effect. Lari’s vocal style captivates the ears with her passionate voice that illuminates the message about a toxic energy that is burdensome. The track has an electro-pop soundscape with an EDM tempo that carries throughout and is heavily highlighted as a bass drop with the chorus. The second verse has the same echo that is followed by Lari’s voice, and it’s mixed with a fast, tempo beat that leads to the bass drop again. The consistency of the electro-pop melody enhances the song itself which makes it enjoyable to listen. It also has a dance-pop feel to it where it makes you want to jump from your seat and vibe along with. The end of the track has a softer finish with Lari’s beautiful, echoed vocals that accentuates the tune with the same dreamy effect.
