Review: "Seeing Stars" - Christina Sikora
We all have gone through at least one tough situation in our lives where it can really affect your mental well-being. Life can be hard, sometimes it's almost unbearable; but learning how to cope with your emotions is the only way to achieve peace. Everyone has bad days and we have to push through it until better days come. Christina Sikora’s single, “Seeing Stars” is about having the deep thoughts that come with going through those dark periods in our lives. Those moments can sometimes change you forever. We go through all these rollercoasters of emotions that we’re unable to get out of which can cause problems within ourselves. We all struggle with something and sometimes are unable to control it. You just have to remember that these feelings won't last forever, and it will always get better.
Christina starts the song with her raw vocals which draw you in immediately, with her lyrics being relatable and full of emotion. She delivers her lyrics with a mix of pop-rock and alt-pop soundscape that captures the feelings of being trapped in this whirlwind of emotions. Her strong vocals enhanced the message significantly because of the thoughts she held onto when going through a dark time in her life. The listener can feel sympathetic through her words which shows the true impact of this track. The meaning of the lyrics are told with strength and courage that seems hard to muster up, but the beat assists with it making this song extremely effective and powerful.
