Review: "Something That Matters" - crysometimes

Marking their fourth release as independent artists, crysometimes has dropped their new single, "Something That Matters." The track is a relatable one, featuring a message that depicts a sense of urgency to make something of your lifeto say and do things that matter. With lyrics like, "I wanna say something that matters/But all of it’s been said before/There’s not a single experience/That hasn’t been described by a song," it is clear that the song is introspective for crysometimes and touches on themes of existential freedom, loneliness, and self-awareness in the internet age.

"Something That Matters" starts off with lots of energy and a scaled-back instrumentation that later explodes into a fiery chorus. There's a driving beat present throughout the song, propelling the song forward as the lead singer takes us through the track's introspective tale. "Something That Matters" features light guitar strums and electronic interjections at the beginning, later evolving into aggressive guitar riffs and rich harmonies at the chorus' arrival. The vocals on the track are euphonious, wavering between light, angsty verses and face-melting choruses. Between the song's memorable melodies and delicious pop-rock instrumentation, "Something That Matters" is a compelling listen that will have you hooked.

crysometimes is a British-Swedish duo, consisting of members Megan (they/them) from Brighton and Marjo (he/him) from Stockholm. Being artists on the rise, the group has received lots of support from BBC Introducing, and their previous releases have been played upwards of 15 times on BBC Radio 1. Their releases prior to "Something That Matters" include "Nadiya," "Easier Said (Than Done)," and "American Football." Having a more alt-pop/pop-rock sound, crysometimes has a sound similar to acts like Paramore, Phoebe Bridgers, Clairo, boygenius, and Avril Lavigne.
