Review: "distant" - Milena Galasso

It's no secret that long-distance relationships can be really hard. It's even harder when someone isn't holding up their end of the bargain. We live in the age of a social media craze; the persona that we give ourselves online sometimes becomes more important than our real life - and that includes our relationships. So you can post on your Instagram story, but you can't even read the text I sent you two days ago? This is the type of situation Milena Galasso light-heartedly sings about in her single, "distant". You know when they're posting all their overly edited selfies of them having fun at parties, but they've ghosted you over DM, that the relationship might just be over for good.

It's a sad world we live in where breakups now happen over a screen, but "distant" is a fun-loving pop bop that gives a terrible situation an upbeat song you can sing and dance along to. As someone who had gone through a similar experience herself, Milena wanted to make a track that pointed out how it's almost comical how silly this generation is that simply unfollowing someone on TikTok could mean the end of a relationship rather than saying it to someone's face. It's easier to hide behind a screen than to confront someone head-on, but that doesn't mean it's the right thing to do. With a catchy chorus and influences from electro-pop and R&B styles, this radio worthy song deserves a spot on your personal playlists.

Milena Galasso is an Italian/Sierbian singer-songwriter based in London, UK. Her music career began in 2022 with the release of her debut single, "Summerstorm" which currently has over 60,000 streams on Spotify! "distant" is the second single in anticipation for the release of Milena's debut EP set to release later this Spring, titled "i hope you're having fun" which was recorded at the Angel and Abbey Road Studios in London. If you love "distant", make sure to check out the leading single which came out earlier this year, "cold", a pop piano ballad about the aftermath of heartbreak. Milena also recently released a stunning acoustic cover of Nelly Furtado's classic song, "I'm Like a Bird". Make sure to follow Milena below to keep up with the latest updates for her upcoming EP.
