Review: "Months and Months" - John Conlin

Singer-songwriter John Conlin's newest single, "Months and Months," is an electro-pop banger about the difficulties of moving past a toxic ex.

This completely translates in "Months and Months," as the track is equal parts pop anthem and emotionally resonant.

Lines like "Your face is starting to vanish....At the top of my screen / See your words, all in green / the panic fills up my head" create such a clear image that evokes those moments we've all faced where past feelings for someone begin creeping up again. The song's central message of not letting an ex back in your life is powerful; Listeners are bound to cheer when Conlin belts, "Been months and months since I've seen you / Let's keep it that way" in the chorus. "Months and Months" is an anthemic track perfect for screaming in the car when you need to vent or dancing the night away.
