Review: "Crash" - Alexa Kate

Alexa Kate released her newest single “Crash.” This song feels incredibly vulnerable and she expresses what it’s like to hope, yet end up disappointed. This reminds me of the saying, “wish for the best, but prepare for the worst.” It is so incredibly human for us to have high expectations and when things don’t go as we think they should, we feel let down. Whether that’s by a person, or an event, etc. it affects us negatively. Alexa perfectly captured that feeling when it comes to being let down by a person. Love can be hard when we expect so much and get little in return.

Alexa’s lyrics dive into themes of disappointment, self-awareness, and vulnerability in relationships. In the opening verse she has a line that says “every time I jump too fast, I’m left with nothing.” She knows she rushes into things and hates the consequences that follow. Alexa uses imagery with the line “searching down dead end streets” implying that she feels lost. She’s longing for the chance to be proven wrong about someone she wanted more from. The chorus opens with “why do you build me up just to crush me down to pieces?” She feels confused and betrayed by someone she trusted.

“Crash” really explores the complexities of navigating a relationship you see being beautiful, when in reality it never will be. Alexa’s vocals have so much emotion that is cohesive to her songwriting. The guitar complimented the track seamlessly, allowing the words to be the focal point. Alexa’s discography has been growing over the years and her talent is admiring. She writes from her heart and continues to share it with us all. She is set out to do amazing things. Check out her socials linked below and listen to “Crash.”
