Review: "I Wish I Never Met You - Summy
Healing from a toxic relationship takes time, and it is not always linear. In Summy’s new single, “I Wish I Never Met You”, she sings about this difficult experience. The song is about her being cheated on in a previous relationship and the process of healing after. She has noticed the change in herself since she met this person. They cast a dark shadow over who she is and have turned her into a shell of herself. Summy regrets ever meeting them and wishes she could go back and change it. “Counting on the days ‘til my heart gets sober” is a heartbreaking lyric due to its implications that even though this toxic person is out of her life, they are still impacting her. She feels the withdrawals but understands that she can never return to this toxic person. The song comes from a very vulnerable place and exhibits a very powerful message. She knows that she has the support of those that love her, and that the pain will not last forever.
Every single song that Summy releases is full of detailed imagery, intense emotion, and beautiful productions. “I Wish I Never Met You” does not stray from this consistent pattern of hers. Her new single is filled with incredible synths that are reminiscent of 80s pop. It is nostalgic with elements of modern influence. The production is steady, drawing focus on the emotional lyrics. Summy’s otherworldly vocals transports the listener to a whimsical wonderland. Her emotions drive the song and create a well-rounded single that resonates with every heartbroken soul.
