Review: "Comfortable" - Hannah Trigwell

Often, the term 'comfortable' is used to describe a feeling of safety and welcoming, but what happens when you overindulge in the refuge of security? Experiencing regret upon reflection of your past years can be undoubtedly painful and thus create a sense of urgency to create a boundless future. The new single from Hannah Trigwell, "Comfortable", describes the fear of growing older without taking risks and therefore becoming 'too comfortable'. The artist produces imagery of a complacent relationship coupled with an internal longing to create lyrics that exude a tone that captures the melancholic essence of the song.

Both lyrically and musically true to the styling of Trigwell's previous work, "Comfortable" bears compelling vocals and lyrical storytelling. The intensity of the artist's voice ebbs and flows harmoniously with the emotional turn points of the verses, rhythmically following the beat of the composition. Choruses consisting of a repeating metaphor, 'Just like another stain we couldn’t wash out/Of my old college T-shirt you’re wearing now/‘Cause it’s comfortable/Too comfortable' use familiarity to describe the unmistakable sink in emotion, signaling it's time for a change. By immersing listeners with tranquil vocals and a catchy ballad, "Comfortable" relates to anyone feeling ready to proceed to the next chapter of their story.

Hannah Trigwell's career began at just the age of 17 when she began busking in her hometown of Leeds, UK. Now, at the age of 31, she has charted internationally along with independently releasing numerous singles and her debut album 'Red' over the past decade. Additionally, the artist has supported several sold-out international tours headlined by several well-known artists such as Jess Glynne. By creating impactful music, the alternative-pop singer-songwriter evokes emotional responses from her loyal fanbase which has grown to an online community of over 800,000 followers.
