Review: "Digging For Diamonds" - Matilde G
Unrequited feelings are a pain. When you like someone, you want to know if that other person feels the same. The frustration of the situation can get worse if the other person is looking for someone who has several of your qualities. It almost makes you want to stand in their face and yell “I’M RIGHT HERE! NOTICE ME”. In ‘Digging For Diamonds’, Matilde G is standing her ground. She likes someone and wants to possibly create a relationship with this person. Unfortunately, this person keeps overlooking Matilde. They refuse to open up or define their relationship like Matilde wants. As Matilde thinks over her situation, she decides she doesn’t want something without labels. She wants to commit to someone, and if this person can’t see her as the diamond she is, then she isn’t willing to stay anymore.
As I was writing this review, I played ‘Digging For Diamonds’ on repeat. This song is one that I can, and did, listen to over and over. With catchy lyrics and a pleasing melody, it was easy on the ears and even easier to hit the repeat button. Matilde shows off her strong vocal ability throughout the song. Not only does she hold out some impressive belts, but she also brings great emotion to her lyrics. You hear Matilde finding her inner strength throughout the song, moving from being okay with ‘undefined’ to ‘No more undefined’. By the end of the song her powerful vocals make it clear she isn’t willing to settle. She wants to be seen for the wonderful value she has and is done with being overlooked. This anthem is one I can’t wait to play in the car with my friends.
Matilde G is ready to become the next female pop icon. Inspired by artists such as Ariana Grande and Lady Gaga, Matilde is prepared to carve her own name into pop history. She fell in love with music at a young age and started writing her own music by 13. Matilde has received accreditations from the Trinity College of London where she worked to perfect her musical craft. The Italian singer-songwriter is currently based in Singapore where she has been featured on the singing competitions ‘Singapore’s Got Talent’ and ‘KWC Singapore’. Recently, Matilde was signed to Swedish label and production company, The Kennel AB. ‘Digging For Diamonds’ is available to stream now on Spotify!
