Review: "Nobody's Tired" - Clara Lars

“Nobody’s Tired” delves into the emotions behind wanting to escape from everyday life. As you analyze your life, you realize the negative choices you have made are because of burnout. You find yourself staying up late and becoming sicker as the years go by. Being busy and participating in regular life drains you and there is little you can say to reassure others of your health. The only comfort you allow yourself is your own fears, but you can no longer continue down this path. All you want now is to pick up your life and run far away. It seems simple, just abandoning your life, selling your worldly possessions, and running to an island. You understand this is unrealistic and would be almost impossible to survive on your own, but it seems much better than your current life. It feels like a necessary escape, distant from the blaring sounds of an exhausting city life.

“Nobody’s Tired” structures itself around the tempo of the melody and lyrics. One of the most impressive aspects of this single is how it picks up speed in the chorus. The fast pace of Clara Lars’s vocal performance is quickly kept up with through the instrumentation. The chorus almost reflects a rap verse with the sudden yet welcome change of pace from the verses. A good bridge can truly set a song apart from others. This bridge drops off from the quickly paced chorus and stands out in two ways: the vocal performance and the lyricism. The vocal performance somewhat slows and makes you instantly focus on the lyrics. The lyrics differ from what was previously heard, mentioning specific things like Saturn's rings and fire. You lean in for more as it repeats and emphasizes the narrator’s tired nature.
