Review: "Just My Type" - Kyle Hume
“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” Wayne Gretzky said that, and the phrase can apply to many scary situations. Dating is definitely one of them. You work up the nerve to put yourself out there for that special person. If fear holds you back, they will never know how amazing you are. There is also potential for them end up with someone else. In “Just My Type,” Kyle Hume takes the plunge by confessing his feelings of love in a song.
The guitar in the song is light and happy and has a rooftop party song sound. While listening to it, I wanted to wave my hands in the air. Hume's vocals have the nostalgic sound of a 2000's punk/rock band. Putting your feelings into words can be hard, but Hume expresses his emotions very clearly through the lyrics. The story of the lyrics does not seem to have an ending. I want to know if Hume’s hard work paid off.
At just 23 years-old, Kyle Hume is an artist and producer. He has a combined total of 1.8 million followers on his social media platforms. If you enjoyed “Just My Type,” Hume writes many other songs about being young and in love. In contrast to “Just My Type,” “If I Would Have Known,” is a song about a break-up. The instrumentation is predominantly just his vocals and piano meaning that the listener gets to hear even more emotion.
