Review: "Ghost" - Cry Pretty
“Ghost”- a new hit single from Cry Pretty- has listeners hooked to her new fresh pop-punk sound. Immediately taking listeners through her experiences and troubles in the past, she becomes up close and personal. “Am I a ghost, or is that you?”– breaking hearts and allowing listeners to empathize with her as she takes them through this rollercoaster of emotions.
The song takes listeners through the journey of a past relationship- one that might’ve never been truly there. There’s frustration, both at herself and her partner. There’s anger, sorrow, and most importantly, there is that feeling that everyone that’s been ghosted can relate to; loss. Through the lyricism, it really emphasizes the memories that are left behind when someone leaves suddenly, and Cry Pretty plays into that beautifully. With her lyrics and production, it all ties together to create this seamless pop song with some rock inspiration tied in. It’s the perfect song for listeners feeling the whole mix of emotions.
Cry Pretty is a new and upcoming artist from Utah, having just released her first single this past August. She's relatable, witty, and comfortable sharing her emotions with the listeners in such a bright and beautiful way. She shows great talent, her first single being such a hit– and teasing more music on the way! With more to come soon, Cry Pretty has promise to grow into something extraordinary.
