Review: "Look At Me Now" - Lily Lane
There's always that one point you get to after a bad relationship where you finally feel like you have officially moved on. Working on changing your mindset and separating yourself from who you used to be in that situation is such a freeing experience. Getting past that dark time and being with someone who treats you extremely better is worthy of being proud of. "Look At Me Now" by Lily Lane is a motivational anthem about recognizing how much better life is once that chapter of your life containing that toxic relationship has been closed for good. It really is empowering to look at how much better your life is when you decide to pick out the toxic weeds that halt your growth.
All aspects of this song are so smooth, but still have that underlying strength to them. For the melody, the beat is very prominent as it accompanies the softer instrumentals. The same goes for Lily's vocals. Her voice has that velvety sound to it, but she's also able to belt out some very strong notes. Her voice reminds me a lot of Demi Lovato's, as they both are able to hit such strong notes with such graceful execution. For the lyrics, this piece is very motivational. The lyrics tell the story of moving on from a bad relationship and being very in tune with your well-being in the present. Again, another aspect of the song that expresses strength. With this song, Lily accomplished writing and producing the perfect "moving on" anthem.
Lily Lane started her time in the music industry as Lily Halpern, before her reincarnation in the music industry in 2014.

She then came back as “Lily Lane” She released her EP “Nothin’ But Trouble” which was featured numerous times in the popular drama “Pretty Little Liars.” Lily has accomplished so much throughout her time in music and continues to consistently release music and grow her career.
