Review: “Forever” - Ok Cowgirl

I’m not sure if I’ve ever been exposed to dream-rock before today, but I have to say, I’m definitely a fan. Ok Cowgirl recently released their single, “Forever”, a single for their upcoming album "Couldn't Save Us From Your Gut" which will be out on August 16th! “Forever” is a soft and meditative song about the “what ifs” surrounding ending a relationship. I especially love the lyric, “If I love you but still dread feeling I have to see it through / does that mean I shouldn’t stay / will this pass, is it a phase.” I won’t lie, when I first heard this song, it reminded me of the theme song for Grey’s Anatomy, so I was immediately interested in hearing more. I feel like I could sit and daydream for hours to this song.

Like I said before, this song is perfect for daydreaming. I think it’s due to the dreamy, soft vocals from lead singer, Leah Lavigne. But also, I think the accompanying band only pushed things over the top, leaving us with this perfect example of how a song can make one ponder and reflect. I genuinely loved everything about this song, but I can also say that I’ve never heard anything like it, either. Most of the music I listen to is either by mainstream pop stars or opera tenors. But do I dare say I can now add “Forever” to my favorites playlist? Yes, and I absolutely did.

Ok Cowgirl is a NYC-based band made up of lead-singer Leah Lavigne, along with Matt Birkenholz, Jake Sabinsky, John Miller, and Ryan Work. They began releasing music back in 2020, with the release of their debut single, “Get Gone”. Since then, they have gone on to release a handful of other singles, and two EP’s. The band loves putting on liver performances, and are even currently on tour! Ok Cowgirl has one of the most unique sounds I’ve ever had the pleasure to study. I quickly fell in love with “Forever”, and I wouldn’t be surprised if I grew to love their other hits as well. I highly recommend everyone goes and listens to “Forever”. I can’t lie when I say it’s perfection.
