Review: "Hello" - ISHAN
Have you ever wanted to talk to someone but felt too self-conscious to do it? “Hello” describes this feeling perfectly. In the song, the lyrics show raw vulnerability that is endearing and relatable. As the songwriter details fantasizing about a crush, he also details the anxiety that comes with talking to someone you like. The fear of rejection keeps the singer from approaching his crush as well as feeling as though it isn’t “the right time”. The track discusses how it is never ”the right time” and that sometimes you just got to take a leap of faith, which leads to him having a moment of courage when he finally speaks to the girl he likes. The single’s sensitive lyrics are balanced with a chill and folk-pop instrumental.
Gorgeous vocals, beautiful lyricism, and a relaxing melody create this track. In this song, the artist encapsulates the best songwriting and instrumental of Ed Sheeran with the amazing vocals of Shawn Mendes. This phenomenal storytelling is backed up by wonderful guitars that add a raw acoustic vibe to this single. This soundscape creates an atmosphere that has you getting lost in the music with the relaxed drums and harmonized vocals. "Hello" is the perfect mix of pop with elements of folk, making it a song that will stay on your mind. Overall, this is a fantastic track that is relatable, catchy, and deserves a listen.
