Review: "Kinda Into You" - Victoria Anthony
Have you ever met someone and had an instant connection? As soon as you met, you felt something deep with a stranger. It’s odd, considering you knew nothing about the person. Who knew what the connection could mean or where it could lead, but it sat in your head and your heart, begging to be explored. Victoria Anthony knows a thing or two about these feelings in her new song, “Kinda Into You”. It’s been a week since she’s met someone, but she feels herself falling for them. She’s aware that they hardly know each other – she knows that things might not even work out - but she has to follow her heart. This person has taken over her thoughts and she needs to see what this connection could be. For those of us who believe in fate, this song is sure to get you excited by the possibility of love.
As warmer weather quickly approaches, I’m on the hunt for fun songs that fit my summer playlist. “Kinda Into You” is definitely making the cut. An upbeat rhythm and catchy lyrics make you want to get up and dance along. Whether you’re in a relationship, single, or somewhere in between, this song can bring a smile to your face. The song is exciting, with Anthony fantasizing over what a connection could be, but her mature vocals keep the song from becoming too fantastical. With lyrics such as, “yeah I don’t really know you and I don’t really care” and, “Doesn’t have to be love/ might not even be right”, the song creates a young and carefree feeling. It made me think back to high school where couples fell hard and fast. Most of those relationships were chaotic, but people were willing to dive headfirst into connections, regardless of what the potential outcomes could be. If you’re looking for something exciting and romantic to jam out to in the car, “Kinda Into You” is the perfect addition to your song rotation.
