Review: "Dotted Lines" - Bree Rusev

Bree Rusev has a new single, called “Dotted Lines” out now. This new release is the second single we got from Bree this year and it has quickly taken over a spot in her top 5 popular tracks on Spotify. After recently performing at the Lighthouse Festival in Australia, she is making her presence known once more with new music. Following her single, "What Is Love", her newest "Dotted Lines" is an acoustic track led by a catchy guitar melody and Bree’s warm and inviting vocals. In her new single, listeners can pick up on her personalized lyrics from the heart that can be felt with every word she sings. Bree wrote this song nearly 4 years ago when she was around the age of 15 and has recently decided to record it for her listeners. Once you hit play you won't be able to stop. If you're looking for a beautiful soft pop track with folk elements behind it, I highly recommended giving "Dotted Lines" a listen through the video below.

Every time Bree plays her guitar it is mesmerizing, and her newest track has plenty of it.

When it comes to the meaning behind "Dotted Lines" the artist has claimed the song is all about the invisible line that we often face in life when making decisions. With opening lyrics like, "Please just give me a sign so I can take your hand in mine" there is a light and delicate feel to this song. As we get further into the song, Bree starts to acknowledge the hard truth that not everything works out the way we want it to when it comes to love and relationships, and this message can be applied to other aspects of life in general. Bree's hard-hitting chorus aims to pull on your heartstrings with lyrics like "We could be all the things we didn't see" and "but It's only a matter of time " as she repeatedly sings of those dotted lines that can get in the way. If you are listening to Bree Rusev for the first time like I was, be prepared to be completely taken away by her voice and enchanted by her melodies. As a young artist, she has already an impressive list of achievements behind her career and I guarantee you will be hearing her name more in the music industry in the near future.

Bree is a 19-year-old singer, songwriter, and guitarist from Australia. Bringing her unique mix of folk and pop together, Bree’s music is drawn from influences from artists like Bon Iver and James Bay. Already, Bree has shown to be a promising up-and-coming artist with over 4,000 monthly listeners and over 100,000 streams collectively on Spotify. The young artist is known for her acoustic melodies as a musician and her heartfelt lyrics as a songwriter and musician. Her sound has become recognizable in a way that has been referenced as “magic dust at play”. Bree started making her first appearance on Spotify with her debut single, “Coastline” back in 2020. Since then, the artist has released 5 more singles, including her most recent, “Dotted Lines”, which was released on December 2nd, 2022. Be on the lookout for more releases from Bree in the future!
