Review: "Cool!" - Hutton

Hutton Cool! Cover Art

Adding a fresh new single to the alt-pop/indie-rock world, Hutton has made her music industry debut with her song "Cool!" The track embodies teenage angst at its finest, incorporating unfiltered lyrics and a raw, authentic message that many can relate to. "Cool!" reflects on what it's like to stand your ground and stand up to someone who has hurt you, making it an anthem for those fighting against the toxicities of life. Giving a sneak peek at what's to come from the artist, "Cool!" is the first of many songs to be released by Hutton, setting expectations high for what she'll do in the next few months.

Dark and mysterious, Hutton sets a laid-back and moody scene with the alt-pop/indie-rock sound of "Cool!" The debut track features groovy bass lines, shuffling beats, and slinky melodies, eventually layering gritty guitar riffs and distorted vocals at the song's climax. Hutton's voice is intoxicating throughout the track, delivering heavy-hitting lines with a subtle edge. Between the intricate layers of the soundscape and the artist's rousing vocal performance, "Cool!" has a sound reminiscent of indie icons like Foster the People, Chappell Roan, and Olivia Rodrigo, paying homage to some of Hutton's influences.

Hailing from Telluride, Colorado, Hutton has been relying on music and songwriting throughout her life as a form of therapy. She moved to LA at 18 years old, dedicating the last two years to developing herself as an artist. During this time, she has worked with producers Austen Healey, Runnner, Stephen Conley, and Derek Ted, writing a collection of hits inspired by the likes of Indigo Girls, Sheryl Crow, Olivia Rodrigo, Phoebe Bridgers, and Chappell Roan. Hutton aspires to convey a bold authenticity through her creations, using her music to reflect on themes of heartbreak, longing, and the questioning that defines life in your 20s.
