Review: "Night Bus" - Caitlin Lavagna
The indie-pop track "Night Bus" by Caitlin Lavagna is a must-listen for anyone who appreciates well-produced indie music! Lavagna's rich lower-register voice is maybe my favorite part of this track; her vocal delivery is enchanting. I love the dreary and disconsolate instrumentals and production; this is a song I would genuinely listen to in my free time. It has a similar feeling to when you look out the window in the middle of a snowstorm on a cold winter night. The familiar desolate feeling is portrayed at the beginning of this track.
This track immediately sent me back to 2014, in the best way possible. I find myself being reminded of indie artists Birdy and Lucy Dacus. This melancholy song talks about sadness and rejection. No matter how hard you try, you are still disregarded. This track encapsulates the hurt and almost provides comfort in the feeling because you've grown accustomed to it. This track has a driving beat; it definitely does not creep along. Its three-and-a-half-minute length is perfect, and it does exactly what it needs to do in this time frame.
Southern Wales native Caitlin Lavagna is an up-and-coming indie artist making a name for herself. She is an aspiring actress along with her music career.
