Review: "Miss Me" - Haley Sorg

The moment you realize a relationship needs to end is the moment everything changes. Even the smallest details suddenly feel like the biggest deal in the world. It tears you apart, then waves of anger hit you, finally you accept what needs to be done. Knowing it'll be hard is one thing but doing it is even harder. The guilty feeling starts to seep in and you realize you know what's been coming but your partner has been oblivious this whole time. You know this is the end but the fear of hurting your partner is hard coming to terms with. Miss Me encapsulates these feelings. The stages of grief you go through during this time and the ultimate guilt you experience when the decision is made. Haley Sorg understands all of it and uses her music as an outlet to get those feelings out rather than allowing them to fester in her.

Miss Me is a unique song. When introduced to the title the initial reaction of many listeners may be that this is going to be an empowering breakup song. Carrying blistering guitar riffs and “I’m My Own Woman” energy. Instead, we are treated to a completely different approach to a breakup. One not many recognize is just as impactful as those girl power tracks we have all come to love. Haley Sorg sings from the perspective of someone just before they break up with their partner. In each lyric, you hear the conflicting emotions as she builds up the courage to inform her partner of the end of their relationship. The track is uncommon with its use of rock ballad undertones led by heavy-hitting guitar while keeping the track grounded with its pop elements. The piano melodies in the background pull the entire song together. Adding an emotional layer that compliments the lyrics Haley belts beautifully. This pop-rock ballad is a listen that sticks in your skin keeping you hooked with its distinctive sound and unique concept.

Haley Sorg is a 22-year-old musician from Indiana with big dreams. Her passion for music began at the age of 13 and she has been working towards releasing bangers ever since. In 2019, she released a track with artist Zeper that became a massive success; Gaining 500,000 streams in a matter of a few days. This was a turning point in Haley’s career. With passion in her pocket and people cheering her on she can do anything. Haley has released nearly a dozen songs that just get better with every listen. Miss Me is just a part of the journey Haley Sorg is on and I can’t wait to see what she does next.
