Review: "Lost It" - Alicia Lov

Lost It Alicia Lov Cover Art

Alicia Lov has struck her fans with another honest and emotion-provoking single, titled “Lost It”. Lov is known for her works inspired by her own struggles in life, and this latest release follows suit. The content of this song deals with the feeling of losing your sense of identity as you age, and struggling to find your true self. She explains how she has tried different methods, (“Of biting my tongue keeping quiet / I tried hard / To be the same person you wanted / Did I cross every line / Just to feel like I'm alive”) and yet nothing is making her feel like herself again. As per her usual style, her lyrics discuss heavy content and yet flow perfectly with the energetic soundscape. This track features an interesting bass line, with snaps and electronic pulsations throughout.

Lov puts into words the feelings that so many young adults know all too well. The song opens with “Tell me / Tell me where my mind is / I'm struggling to find it / Tell me / Look me in my eyes and / Tell me what's inside them”. She is begging her listeners to look at her and give her something that she can hold onto, something that can give her some sense of self. The end of the song is just as interesting and yet extremely heartfelt. She sings the line I'm starting to feel like I've lost it” three times, over an electronic beat. The contrast of the soundscape versus this depressing lyric exemplifies the struggle Lov is currently dealing with. She cannot figure out who she is, and she can’t even figure out how to formulate this thought into other words. The background depicts what is going on in her head- chaos and unruly thoughts. Despite how different the lyrics and the sound of this song is, the two fit together seamlessly to create a very interesting and well done piece.

Alicia Lov grew up a dancer, which gave her a direct look into the world of creativity and music. She has released many singles on streaming platforms, and has amassed over 1,000 monthly listeners. Now based in Edmonton, Canada, she has been working to tie her Spanish roots into her music, as well as her Canadian lifestyle. Her overall music style is similar to that of Tate McRae and a slightly more upbeat Billie Eilish- heartfelt lyrics and a sad tone paired with an electronic instrumentation.
