Review: "Cliché" - Laura Davidson
Everyone loves a good Hollywood love story such as The Notebook, Legally Blonde, or Love Actually. We swoon over the profound romantic gestures, such as Noah writing Allie everyday for a year. It causes us to look at our own love lives and wish they were more exciting! In her new upbeat pop song, "Cliché,” Laura Davidson vents about her boring love life. She wants potential suitors to treat her like all the movie boyfriends she’s watched, no matter how cliché it may be. There is so much to love about this track, from the relatable story to the mood-boosting pop sound!
One aspect of this song that it enjoyed was the instrumentation. The grungy electric guitar and the drums make it sound like a beloved 2000’s pop track. When I initially listened to “Cliché,” the guitar kind of reminded me of “So Yesterday” by Hilary Duff. This is ironic because both tracks have the same type of message. That is, both Davidson and Duff seem to be over their love lives and ready for something to change. As for the lyrics, I liked the format of the verses and chorus. In the verses, Davidson sings about how guys she’s met don’t show up on time and lie about their heights. When it gets to chorus, you can hear how fed up Davidson is when she outlines everything she wants in her “dream guy”.
Love seems to be a big inspiration for Laura Davidson’s work. Her other two songs, “More Than a Friend” and “Drive Me Mad,” are both about the thrill of having a crush. They are both upbeat tracks that will put you in a dancing mood. It doesn’t matter if you’re in your room alone or out with friends. Be brave and dance like nobody's watching! It’s hard to believe that “Cliché" is only Davidson’s third single! She has definitely knocked it out of the park so far, and I can’t wait to hear other work in the future!
