Bre Kennedy’s latest single “Meantime” once again shows off Kennedy’s rich vocals and touching lyricism in a mid-tempo love song. She sings about how life can be tricky, and we’re all changing, but ensuring that she still loves and adores someone in the meantime while she focuses on herself. The rawness in her vocals and more laid-back production creates a more vulnerable, confessional-type song that makes it feel she is just wearing her heart on her sleeve. My favorite type of music are the songs that feel authentic, inspired, and honest. Bre Kennedy does this so effortlessly in “Meantime,” and I can’t wait to hear more of her music.
The track opens up with Kennedy singing “They say love is selfless / I can’t be anyone to anybody / If I don’t know who my self is.” We don’t always know who we are or where we’re going or how things will turn out. But, as Kennedy expresses so deeply in this song, it is working through these moments and on ourselves that will allow us to fully show up for someone else. The chorus features soft vocals as she sings “When we’re in the meantime / Know I still adore you” and “The cold hard truth is / Me loving me is loving you / While we’re in the meantime.” Sometimes, we must grow and change and learn to be there for ourselves, apart from those that we love. This is an ode to those loved ones that, in the meantime, we still love them and are expressing that love by learning to love ourselves. Acknowledging that times are difficult, but assuring them that you still love them. She conveys this message between layers of contemporary pop production.
