Review: "Ink" - Alice Pisano
Dating on its own is bound to produce a slew of uneasy feelings that are challenging to handle, despite how calm and cool we portray ourselves. Introverts are prone to experiencing additional anxieties surrounding their relationships that can be difficult to manage and express to a partner. "Ink" by Alice Pisano describes the pulling emotions of the intensity of love for those who remain wallflowers. Honest and relatable, her lyrics portray authentic sentiments of craving and turbulence that the brain bounces between when you're falling for someone.
"Ink" begins with a slow-paced intro describing the artists insecurities through her lyrics. Though just as quickly as it begins, the song transitions to an upbeat, feel-good anthem surrounding budding feelings in a new relationship. Alice Pisano's unique vocals and wavering emotions are complimented against a blend of the sound of synths and the oscillating percussions. Lyrics such as "I like the way you ink my heart," charms listeners and reinforces the jaunty impression made by the artist.
Alice Pisano is an Italian-born, London-living independent singer-songwriter whose career has become quite impressive in a short time.
