Review “Black Flame Candle” - Mallory Wynne
“Black Flame Candle” is the perfect Halloween bop. This single has the same vibe as Billie Eilish’s “When we all fall asleep, where do we go”. In the track, the artist describes the fear and how it can be enticing. She writes about how love is the reason for the fear this person is feeling. Throughout the song, she uses clever lyricism to express fear of love but also uses terms like “spooky”, “hocus pocus” and “mystic charm” to solidify this as a Halloween banger. Mallory Wynne describes the fear of being attached to another person beautifully.
The song begins with almost a ghost story. Then the bass drops for an intense and eerily beat. The singer has a smooth voice and a flawless falsetto that is highlighted in the chorus. During the final chorus, the musician harmonizes layered vocals which with the snake rattling and heavy bass all find a way to enhance and complement each other. Overall, this single has a spooky vibe that will become a stable Halloween jam for listeners.
Mallory Wynne is a singer, songwriter, and producer from New Jersey, but is now Los Angeles based. The singer specializes in pop but has a diverse knowledge of multiple musical genres. She graduated with a master’s degree from Berklee College of Music. The producer hopes that she can promote more women in music and be a representation to help make a change. Wynne released her debut single in January of 2022, titled, “Fluttering”. She later released two more songs following her debut, making “Black Flame Candle” her latest single.
