Review: “Got Away With It” -Eliza Harrison Smith
"Got Away With It" is a beautiful calm single. The artist has a similar sound to Kacey Musgraves and Taylor Swift, with gorgeous lyrics and instrumentals that highlight vocals. In the track, the vocalist sings about feeling as though her ex has got away with a crime. She compares him to a criminal and her to a crime scene, claiming he stole her heart. Overall, this is a slow ballad that has clever lyricism that listeners will have stuck in their heads.
A highlight of the track would be the second verse. In the second verse, a guitar is introduced and it adds to the overall angst vibe the single has. The final chorus is also stunning with the stripped-down vocals and the limited instrumental. The final chorus is a standout moment in the track because it allows the vocalist to shine and is complemented by the soft piano. This song is about heartbreak and has beautiful instrumentals and lyrics that will resonate with audiences.
Eliza Harrison Smith is from Washington D.C. and now makes music in Nashville, Tennessee. After going to a Taylor Swift concert at thirteen years old, this singer felt inspired to create her music.
