Review: "Broken Morning" - Gabi DeMartino
“Broken Morning” is a personal pop track that goes deep into Gabi DeMartino’s emotional breakdown one morning. Everyone has had those moments where you feel like you can’t go on. You’re so overwhelmed with people, things to do, and stress that you can’t focus on your feelings. Before you know it, you’re at the end of your rope and breaking down entirely. Gabi’s new single is reminder that in the end, it’s just a bad morning, not a bad life. Sometimes you just need to feel your feelings and know you’ll be okay.
Gabi’s latest single uses pop elements and beats without being too overwhelming. Overall, there is a chill-pop vibe that reflects the mood of the lyrics well. “I know life can be good, it’s just a broken morning.” Gabi has masterfully created lyrics to show the hopeful side of a breakdown– that it’s only this moment that’s bad, not my whole life. The lyrics are extremely emotional and relatable as Gabi sings about being scatterbrained, feeling confused, and persevering through it all. It is the lyrics that are crafted so carefully that really make this song have strong feeling.
Gabi DeMartino has found much success starting back in 2012 when she built a name for herself on YouTube with her joint channel with her twin sister.

We can’t wait to hear more tunes from Gabi DeMartino!
