Review: "Lockers" - Jules Atlas

It’s human nature to bottle up your feelings and emotions. It’s because we don’t want it to be used against us or let others take advantage of it. It can be hard to express your true feelings to someone and so we end up telling them “I’m okay” or “I’m fine” when we’re really not. It’s especially hard when it comes to a significant other. Jules Atlas’ single, “Lockers” is about being unable to communicate with each other properly when you're in a relationship. All the weight on our shoulders keeps getting heavier, and we sometimes don’t know how to break it down and release it. In the end, both parties become hurt because they’re pretending to be fine when in reality, it’s the opposite. It’s only going to damage the relationship more.

Atlas starts his song, “Lockers” with soft guitar strums creating a beautiful melodious tune. The pop-acoustic influenced soundscape assists with the emotion that Atlas brings in through the lyrics. His vocals sound clear with passion that illuminates the message thoroughly that makes the listener sympathetic about two lovebirds who are unable to say anything to each other. The first chorus’ tempo is passionate with subtle beats while the second chorus is more upbeat which signifies the deeper emotion of the lyrics. Atlas’ vocals are higher in tone which amplifies the whole second chorus significantly creating a heartfelt sensation. The bridge of the track has a sense of sadness and regret in Atlas’ voice that’s subtly contrasted with small piano notes. The tempo then picks up in the second to last verse with additional ad libs and percussion-based beats hinting the end of the song and possibly, relationship. The very last verse of the track fades out with Atlas' lovely, raw vocals and subtle guitar strums that leads to an ambiguous finish.
