Review: "Something" (feat. Tish Hyman) - Movie Night

“Something” by Movie Night featuring Tish Hyman is a powerful anthem of self-empowerment and resilience. It's all about embracing who you are, letting go of the things that hold you back, and pursuing your dreams. The lyrics encourage the listener to be true to themselves and to, most importantly, believe in something meaningful. “Something” acknowledges that life is hard and it’s difficult to overcome challenges and not give up, but ultimately, we must persevere and find strength in both the highs and lows in life by finding something to believe in and fighting for it. Accompanied by energetic synth and guitar tracks, the song inspires passion and courage all the while being a fun song to scream at the top of your lungs.

The song begins with a soft guitar track, letting the vocals shine. Starting the song with the chorus cements the meaning of the song with lyrics like “Don't waste any more time pretending you're nothing/You gotta believe in something” right from the start. This adds to the anthemic feel of the song, with the lyrics feeling like a mantra as the song goes on. In the verse, lyrics like "You forget to care for yourself/Killing time by going through hell” lay the foundation for the song's message that you only have a limited amount of time, so you shouldn’t waste it living a life you don’t want to live. This then builds up to the chorus, which now feels familiar and really hits home hearing it the second time around following the verse. The song’s feature, Tish Hyman, adds a powerful and soulful element to the song, and her delivery of the lines “Sometimes we fall down to our knees, yeah/Sometimes we climb back to our feet” adds just the right amount of raw authenticity and oomph to the track. The song ending with various voices saying “You gotta believe in something” is the perfect way to reinforce the idea that the song’s message applies to everyone, no matter what age or stage of life they’re in.

Mike Squillante (guitar and vocals), joins forces with Nick Squillante on keys and Steve Ranellone on drums to form the dynamic NYC pop/rock trio, Movie Night. Formerly recognized as Running Lights, the band underwent a compelling rebranding, unveiling a fresh lineup of all-new songs. Movie Night's musical prowess extends beyond their own discography, with noteworthy collaborations that include co-writes and productions alongside Grammy-nominated multi-platinum producer William Wiik Larsen, known for his work with artists like Nico and Vinz, Kygo, and Florida Georgia Line. A testament to their contemporary appeal, Movie Night has rapidly garnered a substantial following on TikTok, amassing over 125K dedicated followers. The trio has taken their vibrant energy on the road, touring colleges across the United States and sharing stages with acclaimed artists such as American Authors, Offset, and Tai Verdes. As anticipation builds, Movie Night is gearing up for the release of their next set of singles, promising fans an exciting continuation of their musical journey in the coming months.
